Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

Ah, I've had nothing plugged into the USB ports...

while running PcP. Also no display or WiFi. Seems to last forever running continuously on a 24,000 mAh battery (couple days?) so I'm guessing I would be pulling 1 Amp at 5V?

Now I have a USB stick in one of the ports while trying out Moode. Sure sounds good!

So the low voltage warning is not part of the display I'm seeing while controlling the Raspberry Pi with an iPad? Makes sense that I'd never be aware of it then, even when running the Raspberry Pi from a cell phone charger.

But if I do start using the USB ports to power a hard drive? 2.5A/5V won't do it? Even if the hard drive has it OWN wall wart/power supply?

Still haven't decided how I'm going to use these things, at the end of the day.

Right now I'm trying to determine what player software and what configuration sounds best for ripped CDs and Hi Rez downloads. Pretty happy with PcP for streaming TIDAL and QOBUZ though. As good or better than my MacBook Air streaming to the USB DAC in my local DAC/Headphone amp.

Also like to free up ALL of the computers on my network from audio tasks (wife sees a computer on with no one in front of it, it's soon to be OFF!). Replacing them all with RaspberryPi's plugged into the local network.
