Little update: SINGXER SU-1 DRIVER UPDATE V4.45 (06.JULI 2018)

little update:
as said in this post->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2018/08/singxer-su-1-driver-update-v4-45-06-juli-2018-v7-24-i2s-hdmi-pinout-matrix-x-sabre-pro-9038pro/ i had now the time to test the V4.45 (we had V4.36 (Singxer_USBAudio_v4.36.0_2017-11-14_DSD512.rar)) on Win10 with a Skysong (Singxer) USB-XMOS-XU208 + ES9038Q2M and it sounds great (especially also on foobar in DoP)..->Link
i surmise its slighty slightly a little bit better (almost „hypothetical 😉 )(but in foobar in DoP (DSD128) its great as said)->

more about it (+file+link) in the forum->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=75

greets for now 😉

Some new ES9038Q2M-things../ Raspberry Pi 3B+ first impressions..

so, 😉
some user at my praised Diyaudio.com-forum->Link said something about a new MShow-Audio „SU5-ES9038Q2M-DAC-HIFI-XU208-DSD-TPA6120-Headphone-audio-Amp-Bluetooth-5-0″->Link 160$, and interesting is that they used some AK4113 for SPDIF-conversion; posted here earlier something about it->Link; for me another „indicator“ that the „original“-spdif conversion by the ES9038Q2M on this board is not soo good as expected, as stated also earlier; better choice would be using some SRC4192 or AK4137->Link

by that, as thinking to buy some Green ES9038Q2M V1.07, including the display, i found some pictures with this display delivered/attached in „action“ and that looks not soo nice (frankly said) 😉 , so i think its better to continue to try to build an „own“ version (display-wise) 😉

by that i´ve bought some new Raspberry pi 3B+ (cause i´ve „fucked“ up my Raspberry Zero W with some ugly soldering) and first thing i can say about the new „wifi“ (N/AC) that i had yesterday (measured with iperf3) 84Mb/s (10MB/s) via N (Asus-RT56U); not soo good (expected 300mb/s)..
greets for now 😉

Hooray !! Essabre-90xx-rpi teamed up with „Allo“..;-)

so, 😉
nothing spectacular new, essabre-90xx-rpi has now „teamed-up“ with Allo.com,

where u can buy such nice things like the „Allo Katana DAC“, LINK

or some „Vana-Player“ for example; LINK

or the phenomenal „Kali-Reclocker“ (64€ (incl.shipping)); LINK

and also some accessoires like this 5V power supply (3A) 13€ (inkl.shipping)..; LINK

will try to make some „deal“ with them that u as a essabre-90xx-rpi member or visitor get some kind of „voucher“-code or discount or similar..

Singxer SU-1 Driver update V4.45 (06.Juli 2018) V7.24 / I2S-HDMI-pinout / Matrix X-Sabre Pro 9038Pro

so, 😉
came by chance about this new „Singxer“ USB-Class-driver V4.45..we were at V4.36 and its directly from the same „shenzhenaudio“-folder/website->https://download.shenzhenaudio.com/Singxer/SU-1_driver_7.24_update/,
where we got our lovely „Singxer_USBAudio_v4.36.0_2017-11-14_DSD512.rar“ from; i will test it here; but my ES9038Q2M is now connected to the Pi; will see..(post the driver-pack at the forum too->Link)
The Singxer SU-1 is equipped with one ES9038Q2M + a XMOS XU-208->https://www.amazon.com/Singxer-digital-interface-XU208-DSD256/dp/B01N1OQY1A, https://kitsunehifi.com/product/singxersu1black/

by that i saw some I2S-HDMI-port pinout on the „Matrix X-Sabre Pro ES9038PRO 32Bit/768kHz DSD1024 Audio DAC„->https://www.shenzhenaudio.com/matrix-x-sabre-pro-es9038pro-32bit-768khz-dsd1024-audio-dac.html;
it says:“DSD1024 PCM768
As a new generation of Matrix flagship DAC, X-SABRE Pro not only supports 32Bit/768kHz PCM audio stream playback, but also supports DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, DSD512, and even supports DSD1024 with the sample rate of 45.158MHz via IS input port.“

 

(thats all „old“ stuff; but just to remember)

greets for now.. 😉

New Picoreplayer is out->V4.0.0 beta 5 + Moode 4.2 install instructions („moslog“)

hi there, 😉
a new picoreplayer is out->V4.0.0 beta 5->https://www.picoreplayer.org

its almost the same; like in this phenomenal 😉 , earlier post-> http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2018/04/new-picoreplayer-is-out-v3-5-24-march-2018/

this time they have a rpi-kernel bump to Kernel 4.14.56, the DSD(Dop-)-„native patches“ are included, selectable..

tried to use the new „Allo Katana“-overlay here too on an ES9038Q2M->no success/didnt work/squeezelite refuses to start..

use now again (as described in the mentioned, earlier post) the „i-sabre-9023„-overlay, checked „384k“ and „bclk_ratio_int_div“ option, under „Card Control“..

got 32/384 without any problems, same with DSD-„material“->up to 32/352..(see also earlier post)..

but still a little bit „metallic“-sound; as described and still don´t know why..

Volumio“ for example has for my ears (IMO) a far far better sound/tune..

second:

a few days ago, i tried to install Moode 4.2 on a fresh raspian-stretch-lite..i knew there were such commands like „mosbrief,moslog and moslast“ for monitoring the installation progress; but i didn´t know how to use it correctly..

started the installation anyway, but as you see absolutely nothing !! u don´t know if it hangs/or is finished or something and so i had an incomplete installation after all..

so today i had the time to re-test it; in short: place a „ssh“-file in the root of the card (after imaging the raspbian stretch-lite on it); u can now ssh on it..make the commands for the mosbuilding (absolutely fabulous !! article about it in english here->Link and in german here->Link (fabulous !!)

after rebooting the first time (u first have to make a „hard-reset“, means unplug and re-plug the power (else it didnt work !!) u can now ssh on the pi again (while still working/compiling etc..) with now (and thats important too) ssh-login: pi and pass (thats new): moodeaudio

now u can type „moslog“ and can watch the installation progress, wonderfulst !! 😉

(by that i´ve „demolished“ my lovely raspberry zero w ;-( , wrong soldered and so on (but this „soldering“ was, as said, more difficult than on an arduino or esp32-board for example)..

i still want to buy a new ES9038Q2M Green V1.07 and finally some OPA627, but have a small „cash-flow“-problem, „distinguished said“ at present 😉

will post then maybe more again 😉
