hi there !!  Cool

many thx to "Grigory" at the main-blog ->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/?p=448#comment-2106

we have now here the xmos-usb-audio-driver at V4.67 -> https://download.shenzhenaudio.com/Singx...4.67.0.rar

havent test it here here so far, but the chance is at 95%  Rolleyes that it will work..

u can download the driver also here ->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/driver/...4.67.0.rar

  New Weiliang Audio SU7 DAC PCB/Display *asked by Om4c*
Posted by: admin - 11-20-2019, 11:51 AM - Forum: New Weiliang Audio SU7 DAC PCB/Display - No Replies

Hello,
 
I bought a Weiliang Audio ES9038Q2M I2S DAC (PCB and Display only) from AliExpress (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32984375...4c4d96c5bv).    It's connected using the I2S connectors to my RPi3B+ running Volumio 2.619, and using the R-PI DAC model it works well.

I'm hoping to find the answer to some questions:

- how do I get DSD direct to work? Currently it seems to translate to 192KHz PCM, and there's a loud pop when the DSD track starts.
- how do I change between the DAC filters. Pressing the rotary encoder immediately changes the input, long presses also change the input!
- what is the best model to use in Volumio (is R-PI DAC) the only one?


This is my first ES9038Q2M DAC, so any help would be much appreciated!

  DLNA Client
Posted by: denisfern - 05-09-2019, 00:23 AM - Forum: DAC ES9038pro DLNA-client Question - asked by "denisfern" - Replies (2)

So I just got a DAC with a ES9038pro, I am looking for an DLNA client  that can interface with the DLNA server running on my NAS and spits it out to a USB cable connected to my DAC.  I think a raspberry pi with a good USB port, gold plated,  can do this job.


Please advise.



Thanks!

so,
because i´m at present very interested in some LSI 9267-8i and there were "cheap" ones around, but then mostly NEC-branded and not all with the "full" raid-set(Raid0/1/5/6) , i´ve found a very interesting post about it->

  '"Project 1-B"->Cambridge Audio Azur 540A IR/BT-remote + Webr. Wemos D1 R2 (ESP8266)
Posted by: admin - 12-04-2018, 03:55 AM - Forum: '"Project 1-B"->"Project 1" + Webremote Wemos D1 R2 (ESP8266) - Replies (2)

so,  Wink
after i was very glad with "Project 1" (CA-IR-remote substitution through Arduino+Bluetooth) + the "Project 3"->Webcontrol for the ES9038Q2M  Wink i thought i could combine these two and because there was also an "old" WeMos D1 R2 (ESP8266)"lying around" i made a simple "Arduino goes serial with the ESP8266"..
there are millions of tutorials about this on the web, had nevertheless problems here, and so i thought i make a quick and dirty tutorial how to connect the Arduino Uno and the ESP8266, via which pins and with the right libraries..(+ Arduino IDE-sketch)

[Image: uno+wemosd1r2.jpg]

Wiring:
absolutely easy (if u know how  Wink )..
on the Arduino simply use: (#include <SoftwareSerial.h>)-> SoftwareSerial wifi(10, 11); (or other pins, your choice) + (void setup->wifi.begin(9600); etc..look at the attached sketch..)
wanted also to use "SoftwareSerial" on Wemos (ESP8266) but had absolutely no success, so i used finally "tx1"->Serial1 (Serial1 only with tx) on D4 (GPIO2) (on this special WeMos D1 R2 the built-in led is btw on GPIO14 !!)
so, sketch ESP8266->only void.setup->Serial1.begin(9600);
(so, practically, connect D4 on the ESP8266 with 10 on the Uno..) (more in the also attached sketch..)

[Image: remote-2.jpg]

next point is the "Webremote"-sketch for the ESP8266..nothing special in particular; its all build on the wonderful "autoconnect-library" by "Hieromon"-->https://github.com/Hieromon/AutoConnect

as said, all further in the attached sketchs->hope someone can use it for himself ;-)

hi there,
came by chance (in searching for Sabaj DA3) on this site->https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?PH...152638.340

and there they have a link to this->New windows driver XMOS_USBAudio_v4.47.0_2018-08-06_debug for Da3, Da2, D4, Idea, IQ, etc released by Sabaj.
(Tested and working fine with with Sabaj Da2.)

  Thesycon JLsound V4.13 + V4.41 - I2Soverusb
Posted by: admin - 09-24-2018, 00:03 AM - Forum: Thesycon JLsound V4.13 + V4.41 - I2Soverusb - No Replies

in thinking about this raspi-4137 i came about this site (knew it anyway before)->

http://jlsounds.com/i2soverusb.html

[Image: I2SoverUSB_1.jpg]
interesting thing (more specs at the link above..)

but also interesting is that they have a download-section (mainly for their i2soverusb i think) but there are lot of driver for the xmos-audio-boards ->

http://jlsounds.com/drivers.html

[Image: jlsound-2.jpg]

just downloaded the V4.41, we had V4.45 (although i think there are differences with the version-numbers between Thesycon+"normal" XMOS-audio-driver..)
couldn´t test it right now, will report then..(or post YOUR  experiences with it here..)

  interesting post concerning different op-amps..
Posted by: admin - 09-22-2018, 17:56 PM - Forum: OP-Amp rankings/experiences ES-Sabre-Boards - No Replies

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/audio-gd...-2.397691/

interesting excerpts:

"..Category 4 – like a completely arranged room, not quite tidy yet
I'd say, the fight with the Audio-gd op-amps starts making sense here. [Image: smily_headphones1.gif] 
Did you ever know that the op-amp grade matters for audio? Yes, it does, at least for OPA2134, OPA2132, LT1028, AD797 and OPA627 which I can confirm. So, let's continue:
2x OPA627BP – welcome to Category 4! Unlike the AP or AU series, this one is not lacking proper attack. Sure, it's not lightning fast but at least this one can keep the rhythm, it's actually pretty similar to the AD797ANZ with the advantage of JFET inputs. Lack of the last refinement and oomph makes it less than perfect. I'll get back to this later.
2x AD797ANZ – this one I regarded for a long time as a piece of wire equivalent when used as a buffer. It lacked some level of the lowest detail but added pleasant tube-like timbre, in a delicate form of course. This one is a bit better than the AD8599, with less accentuated sonic signature. 
2x LT1028ACN8 – the better LT1028 grade. Sure it's audible. Instead of the slight dryness you get a bit longer sustain in the mids, with a slightly higher midrange coloration, hardly perceivable when your ears get used to it. The soundstage is correct, the imaging is correct, tha PraT is correct, and what I would like from it to be perfect is a bit more independence of the events in the furthest background plans. It's sounds like it's a bit hazy there, however you can like it. 
2x OP27GP – no kidding! Just see the prices of the OP27E from Texas. [Image: smily_headphones1.gif] There is a trick – this one, I mean the one from Burr-Brown I own, requires class A biasing. Otherwise it's not worth considering. I remember I liked it even more than the 2x LT1028ACN8 combo. As a side note I can write that the OPA627 was designed to have this op-amp offering JFET inputs. Same with the OP37 vs. OPA637. 
2x OPA211 – the king of the space, I guess it's even exaggerated. In terms of overall order, clarity, timbre transparency and rhythm, this one is a direct upgrade from the OPA2228. Slight but worth it. The increased shape detail and huge soundstage is probably the result of something I'd call sound disassembling. It's like losing spatial coherence of each sound, having the tone in one place, and the harmonics just aside, not surrounding the right tone. Strange but true.
Category 5 – complete sound traveling in the clean air
2x AD797BRZ – this is the op-amp truly deserving the name of the Analog Device. This one is a smoother and fuller sounding version of the AD797. Switching from the ANZ to the BRZ series is like going vinyl instead of digital. Everything is smooth to the moment your music craves for the harsh texture like aggressive violin passages, distorted guitars, or stronger double bass phrases. The readability of the furthest plans is great, without going into image sharpening effect which makes you see the details more but lose the feeling of perspective at the same time. Roughly, it's like the AD79ANZ with all advantages of the OPA627BP added. The soundstage is nowhere limited and the sound image of whatever possible shape. This is a reference integrated op-amp for me so let me know as soon as you find better, and I will verify it. [Image: wink.gif] 

etc..
