    hi Simone, great, I have received your message, thanks a lot!

    I'm currently looking into it and will get back to you asap.
    Maybe two questions of more general interest for this audience; what defines if we need to compile your modified SOX ourselves or should be able to use the provided versions?
    Which file/s exactly do we need to replace, I replaced the sox executable.. after this the NAS refused to play any music file at all.. should I look for sox.so instead?
    Sorry if these questions are dumb, I'm still a beginner when it comes to Linux underlyings.

    thanks a lot, Gerhard

    Sorry for errors or misunderstandings but English is not my native language.

    I've already compiled sox executables only for specific operative systems, so if you are using FreeBSD, not customized linux distros, windows or MacOS you can just download the binary file of sox and replace the original one with the new one; then you should rename it in "sox" and check the file permissions.

    If you are not using these o.ss. or you are using customized linux distro like the one of your NAS you will need to compile by yourself the software on the target operative system, on the "How to compilae SoX" guide you'll find, under the FreeBSD paragraph, the list of website where you can download the source code of the libraries that sox uses, those are the software you need to compile (to know how just read under the "compiling" paragraph) BEFORE sox. After that you can compile sox and move the executable and replace the one provinded with Logitech Media Server.

    Hope this helps,
    Simone

    Hello Simone,

    don't worry about the language, everything is totally understandable, the bigger problem is that my knowledge in Linux development is very limited.

    Nevertheless, finally, after I downloaded the sources for libmad library and compiled it, I could successfully compile sox itself, on my ARMv7 NAS (Synology DS2016play), as you suggested.

    My self-compiled sox is working fine now for playing FLAC or MP3, but yet it doesn't transcode any of my DSD files. I'm using C-3PO to control the playback. I've had results varying with settings, but all I get is seeing the play time progressing or hearing only noise.

    This is what ldd says:

    Code:
    root@DiskStation:/opt/bin# ldd sox
            libsox.so.3 => /opt/lib/libsox.so.3 (0x76ddb000)
            libpng16.so.16 => /opt/lib/libpng16.so.16 (0x76da3000)
            libz.so.1 => /opt/lib/libz.so.1 (0x76d81000)
            libFLAC.so.8 => /opt/lib/libFLAC.so.8 (0x76d1a000)
            libmad.so.0 => /opt/lib/libmad.so.0 (0x76cf5000)
            libmp3lame.so.0 => /opt/lib/libmp3lame.so.0 (0x76c77000)
            libm.so.6 => /opt/lib/libm.so.6 (0x76bc3000)
            libssp.so.0 => /opt/lib/libssp.so.0 (0x76bb1000)
            libgcc_s.so.1 => /opt/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x76b96000)
            libc.so.6 => /opt/lib/libc.so.6 (0x76a5a000)
            /opt/lib/ld-linux.so.3 (0x76ed9000)
    This is what C-3PO tells me for a .dsf file to be transcoded to FLAC:
    Trasformed by C-3PO in:

    "/opt/bin/sox" -q -t dsf "/volume1/music/HOME/DSD/CHANNELCLASSICS/11/stereo/19503/04_19503_2ch.dsf" -t flac -C 5 -b 24 --buffer 8192 - lowpass -1 22000 gain -h rate -m -I -b 90.7 -f 44100

    When I execute sox with these parameters in SSH, I only get weird characters instead of a meaningful error message.
    I will head over to Audiodigitale.eu and try to find out more on the configuration.

    Do you have an idea what could be the cause? How could I activate the Log file?

    You need to create an armhf-linux folder under the plugins DSDPlayer/Bin folder

    Then copy the files from the tar file into DSDPlayer/Bin/armhf-linux

    If the shared dsdplay binary doesn't run due to missing libraries, delete it and rename dsdplay-static to dsdplay

    For armv5el use arm-linux for the folder name

    Restart LMS and you should be able to setup DSDPlayer from the player settings page in the webgui.

    Oh YES this does work on ARM, in my case armv7l with DS2016play's STiH412 processor.
    I'm aware this is not ideal because this thing has a built-in floating-point unit which I'm probably not using but this is OK for now
    I'm using the static library armv5el binary.

    Thank you Ralphy!!!!

    PS: I didn't find documentation for the Settings of the DSDPlayer Plugin ... any hints?

    EDIT:
    Note to myself - or others who are interested -> Parameters like "Flags", "Attenuation" etc. for DSDPlayer are the same ones like to control Squeezelite, see:

    Cannot play dsd files with Decoder Error

    I've had this dsd playback issue for 3 days now and really need help from you guys.

    Background: I am using sotm sms 200 with LMS 7.9 installed. The player supports native dsd and connected to DDC singxer f-1 and spdif to chord hugo. DDC also supports native dsd without problem. All the music files are stored on usb and connected to sms 200 usb dock.

    Settings:
    a. Plugin: DSDplayer installed.
    b. File Type Setting: DFF, DST Native.
    c. Volume Control: Output level is fixed at 100%. Crossfade: None.
    d. DSD Player tab: This player supports native playback of dsd files. DSD-over-PCM should be configured on the player configuration interface.
    e. I chose sms 200 to output native dsd in sotm interface.

    Symptom:
    a. dsd files can be played for 10-30 s without any sounds, then will stop playing and skip to another song
    b. All other files 16/24bit, 44/96/192k can be played without any problem.
    c. Log shows: Decoder does not support file format, code 0


    Others: All dsd files can be played on my win 8 computer with foobar.

    Really want dsd files to be played on sms 200.

    Any suggestions are welcome. Appreciated for ur help.

    IMHO could be an issue with convert.conf or custom-convert.conf. Did you maybe install a Plugin in LMS or fiddle with advanced settings File Types in LMS three days ago?

    If not, then why donĺt you have this fixed by the SOTM support. If still in warranty.. LMS and DSD are committed features of this box.

    Hi Ge Ba,

    Thank you for your reply. Quick update, just ask distributor in HK (where I live and bought the sms) to help and it seem that the sms 200 itself cannot play dff files smoothly (weired). Hence they're now contacting Korean side. Still trying to figure out the problem.

    Thx,
    Jianan

    Well but do the .dsf files work? To be honest, I converted all my .dff files to .dsf as dff does not support meta data.
    There are tools available in the net and after converting you can properly maintain the tags for your files.
