ES9028Q2M+ Volumio 2.323 (17.11.2017) + Hints about 384khz in general
i normally „hate“ this Volumio->came back to it by chance..
so, very smooth and clean..not so many pops,clicks and noise..relaxed..->try it !! 😉 (i wondered myself->relatively good alternative to the other rpi-audioplayer at present)
I used „Generic I2S DAC“ and then came „Hifiberry-DAC“ automatically..
tried to upsample it to 384khz but was not possible „ALSA-error“->and so we are back to the main problem with 384khz and this ES9028Q2M-Board (tried to recall it here, before i forgot it again):
Over I2S and the RPI3B its normally only up to 192khz->for more (384khz) u need a kernel patch..
In picoreplayer u can use the „es9023“ overlay and the the „384khz“-option then (as said some articles before); but picoreplayer is not so comfortable..
same at present with MoodeV4B9 and „hifiberry-dac“->because it has not now the advanced and realtime-kernel as before also no 384khz: same at present with Dietpi..
DoP seems possible; and so we come to the next article->DSD-LED (+Volume and FIR-Buttons) on these ES9028Q2M->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2017/11/dsd-led-volume-and-fir-buttons-on-these-es9028q2m-boards-diy/
