    Khadas Tone Board (USB DAC)

    Well yesterday I played some Spotify stuff and various radio streams. It's a very good player. It seems tonally accurate and I didn't find it at all fatiguing. Today I tried a wee comparison. I played Shawn Colvin singing "One Cool Remove" with Mary Chapin Carpenter, ripped to flac and using LMS. I used an Allo Digione on rpi3b into a NorthStar Essensio dac synced to the Toneboard (rpi3b+). Volume was also synced between the devices. The track was put on repeat and I switched between the two sorces using the remote on the pre-amp. I soon found I had to concentrate more on which player I was listening/switching to, rather than what was going on in the track. I couldn't distinguish any differences between the two devices. So, a from me. ronnie

  3. Well , we can't have an angry goat , so why not ask over here? https://forums.slimdevices.com/ and give more details of your settings ,setup and usage. Do you have your playlists in the same folder as your music files for example, that's about the only thing I can think of. atb ronnie

    BBC iPlayer Extras not working on LMS

    Hi Andrew. Do you have this enabled? I normally get an update notification on the LMS web gui. Another way to check is to open the Plugins Tab on the Settings page and just hover the mouse, that sometimes briings up the restart box. ronnie
