Volumio v2.444 out / „Allo Katana“-support -> works on „chinese“-ES9038Q2M too !! / massive.. ;-)

so, 😉
a new Volumio is out->V2.444 ; its here->https://volumio.org/get-started/..
changelog says: „..Pi kernel bump to 4.14.56, Allo Katana support etc.“..
tested it here rightaway with the ES9038Q2M (2*AD797)->“massive“ 😉


but back to the Katana-overlay: at first „hear-out“ i´ve got the feel its more „massive“, more „accentuated“ (especially with the 2*AD797)..
don´t know at present if its the Katana-option, or the optimized Volumio-„footprint/improvements“ (see changelog)..
unfortunately i´ve got only 192khz/24bit with „audio resampling on“ (set it up for 384khz but got only 192/24)->

by that, there´s also a new „Volumio ESS9028QM„-option; works too (with the „Blue“ ES9038Q2M) (but didnt test if it reaches 384khz)..
but anyway there´s absolutely an improvement „sound-wise“ again !! „sounds“ again more „right“; really heavy, absolutely to recommend !! (RPI 3B-ES9038Q2M-2*AD797)

by that i´ve experimented a little bit more with „node-red“ and now with „MQTT-broker,-subscribe+publish“ and so on; really freaky, u can seamlessly connect an android app (->picture) with a pi zero as mqtt-broker and then via bluetooth (or websockets) to an arduino or esp32s..as said absolutely „whacky“ 😉


(„IoT MQTT Panel“->google/android-playstore->

(this is as said, all for (in favor) of our lovely „DIY-DAC„-project , display and usability-wise)..
(will post maybe then more..)
but as said, really a sound improvement with the new Volumio (+“Katana“-option)..
greets for now 😉
