Little update: Skysong XMOS-USB-Bridge external power supply 5V / interesting discussion „real“ DoP
so my dear visitors, 😉
after this little site got so much resonance (which i never expected) and i finally found the „real“ reason for the stuttering in my Skysong-XMOS-USB-Bridge – ES9038Q2M combo->it was the power-supply (more shortly) and i have got now such a wonderful/brilliant sound here + a very interesting discussion/topic was coming up concerning „real“ DoP (DSD) on the Sabre-boards with the „DSD-lock-light „ON„, i thought i maybe make a new post..
and excuse me, its all very „repeating“ here on the blog (said it before), but its a blog, with a little „Life-line“ and so we have to live with it 😉 ..
back to the first topic: as said in this post->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2018/04/es9038q2mskysong-singxer-xmos-usb-bridge-final-thoughts-settings-tone-optimization/->“..by that to provide the Skysong/Singxer USB-bridge with an external 5V power supply also boosted the overall performance of the Bridge by 10-15% !! absolutely to recommend !!..“ i had lately this „stuttering“ on the combo again, thought first the ESS-PCB/-chip is damaged, had not enough power etc.. but at present it looks like the wonderful,wonderful usb-bridge is getting a little bit older, and a few days ago in searching for the reason i plugged again the external 5V power supply in and hooray: the stuttering was gone and the tune/sound really improved again, so great, the positioning, the absolutely more exactly tone and so on !!
really,really wonderful bridge !!
(i´ve got the luck that i´ve got the „deluxe“-version with the golden Crystek + some other modifications; absolutely superb !! i´ve read somewhere else that the skysong-bridges are the ones with the „finest“ xmos-implementation and so on..i can absolutely confirm it from here !!)
the interesting thing is now that i was/am an absolutely Raspberry Pi-I2S-ESS Sabre-board fan/defender, absolutely superb sound, absolutely jitterless and so on (in comparison to any PC-soundcards or other DACs etc.) i must say, that such a combo with this skysong-bridge + nowadays USB3.0 (which had also a great effect on the „tune“ here (vs. the old USB2.0)) is really close/tight to it !!
it is an absolutely improvement via USB3.0 + some external power supply (as said), really close to some Raspberry Pi->I2S connection..
by that „Johnson Wu“ had a very interesting question (here in the comment-section on the right) concerning real „DoP“(DSD) sound with DSD-lock-light ON on the Essabre-boards->look at the comments on the right (or at the bottom of this post->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2018/09/volumio-now-at-v2-452-did-it-dsd-lock-light-on-es9038q2m-alsamixer-archphile-xmos-usb-audio-etc/#comment-1148
more to come,many greets for now !! 😉
