Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

Initial operational observations

The WiFi sensitivity of the Pi is much lower than that of a Touch. 16/44 content streamed just fine into the somewhat challenging environment of the garage which is a connected space to the house via a breezeway. With 24/96 content, however, there were constant dropouts. No joy.

For years, I have configured LMS to perform the FLAC decompression at the server level to free the modest computational output of the Touch's ARM11 processor. That meant that the data stream was an uncompressed WAV stream which previously worked just fine for any resolution.


1. Since both uRendu and RPi processors have gigaflop computational capability, server based decoding is no longer required. I reconfigured LMS to send the FLAC stream.
2. Moved access point in garage closer to closet where gear is located.
3. Took advantage of Zebra Top Hat enclosure mounting and put on wall.

Now I'm back to full functionality regardless of resolution.
