    Next step will be getting it to work with ARIOI Image to be able doing DRC with ACOURATE

    First Feedback after a shootout with

    Hifiberry DAC+Pro (Switched Powersupply for Raspi, Linear Supply for Hifiberry)
    Pi3 with I-Sabre (single linear Powersupply for Raspi and DAC)

    The Sabre sounds a little different (better?), Voices seems to be clearer, Stage is a little wider.

    I┤m a big fan of Hifiberry from the beginning on, but the SABRE is really great stuff....

    Yesterday I had a little shootout between my SABRE and Raspi with Hifiberry DIGI connected to Arcam FMJ D33, really tight battle, same stage but Voices with the SABRA are more present and clear.


    Now I┤m planning to rebuild my DIY streamer and have the SABRE used with seperate +-12V supply for the AOP┤s, 5V linear for the ESS9018 and extra Supply for the Raspi.

    Hi Harryl89,

    didn┤t get the aroio working with the sabre, but i will contact abacus if there are possibilitys get it working.

    with the picore the setting generic works, so it should not be a big deal.

    If the aroio didn┤t find a correct DAC the LMS is not found, even when the aroio is used as a UPNP (with the UPNP - Plugin in LMS) I have no sound (but the aroio is found as a UPNP renderer)

    I will keep you updated.
