    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Oh, right. Great.   I found that MPD with GMPC works best (and adjusts bit-depth according to files - although you've mentioned that this bears little significance). Audacious comes close with working very well too. These two programs disable software control altogether.   DeadbeeF and...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    how do I fix this?   I tried Audacious and it seems that it allows you to 'set' a bit-depth and not let the bit-depth be determined by the audio file. The good thing about Audacious is that it allows you to disable all software volume control, so essentially the output is perfect as far as I...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Tried playing something else whilst listening to audio.   There is just one audio device that is built into the mobo, so card 0 outputs to HDMI and card 1 outputs to PCH, which contains the SPDIF out. When I play something on soundcloud while listening to music on deadbeef, it plays via HDMI...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Thanks All done and ALSA configured accordingly playing through my DAC.   However, I am still able to control the volume of my playback on Deadbeef by tinkering with the volume bar. I don't think that is supposed to happen if I am streaming bit perfect via SPDIF

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Thanks   I haven't tinkered with the alsa config file (/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf) but can't find anything within it that would suggest this. All the defaults just appear as a list without any further strings below it. I assume that this means that bitdepth default hasn't been defined -...

    Bit Perfect Audio from Linux

    Hi,   Lengthy topic and it seems like most of the chat here is trying to get Bit Perfect via USB   If I'm trying to set up my Benchmark DAC1 to receive digital out via S/PDIF would it be simply using deadbeef to use output plugin as ALSA and output device as HDA Intel PCH, ALC892 Digital for...

    Music vs Love

    Single here but would never date someone who doesn't have a taste in music. For example, Me "What music do you like?" Her "Everything but <insert genre here>" No preference means no interest.

    HD800-are they worth their price when compared to other dynamic headphones that have a 1000$+ price,in or out of prodction?

    HD800 is great especially coming out of the beta22. I heard this first hand and only single ended. I would imagine it being much better balanced. It is like mixing the best of HD600 with the best of K1000 and there you have it, everything you need in the HD800

    Balanced Amp Question

    There's 'really balanced' (I think the term is full differential balanced?), which I believe is what the b24 is (The &beta;24 Fully-differential Power Amplifier). It will put a balanced output regardless of input. First Watt F1 is also like this. Then there's the usual balanced by putting...
