I hope he'll get it now.
Nope. The MicroRendu comes with a well done USB port.
Most of us know what the known USB gadgets do to the sound.
That's why I said he should add one of these USB gadgets
to the bill.
Otherwise I wouldn't see a fair chance for the naked RPI to beat the MicroRendu.
If the Audiophillio (or any other USB DAC/interface) is that good that upstream originated mess wouldn't have much of an impact, what would this tell us then !?!? Something about RPI vs. MicroRendu!!?? Hmmh. Maybe!?!?
It could also tell us something about the Audiophillio !?!?
His comparison can easily be questioned - about fairness - from several angles.
However. If somebody is looking for a nice SPDIF solution I guess he might have a valid story about a system - his system - and not a device.
Obviously for now we havn't taken his DAC into the scope. That one will play its own role again.
Yup, microRendu comes with a "well done USB port", and Ethernet. Pi combines multiple USB ports and 10/100 Ethernet on a single hub. Even a PC or Mac will have separate USB hubs for multiple USB ports, and a separate Gigabit Ethernet controller.
Does it matter sonically?
"Does it matter soncially?"
If you'd ask Archimago: No way. All measurements look the same. It's all in our heads.
From my perspective: Everything matters! How much it matters is a different question and a very personal matter.
Some of these guys either have suspect hearing, or more probably suspect music and equipment setup.
At least it should matter.
But then it might not.
is why most folks here don't use USB for audio out.
I don't think the USB 'situation' makes any real difference.
I have 4 RPi's two with the Digi+ Pro and two without. I normally use one of those small adapters to just plug the RPi right into my Dac via USB...Audiogd Master 7.
