    PiCorePlayer 6.1.0 running LMS only - which flavour?

    I would I guess describe myself as an audiophile, and have for a few years run LMS on a Rpi 3 under PiCorePlayer, serving a Squeezebox Touch with external DAC, and a Duet in the kitchen. PiCorePlayer was at level 3.21 but I had to upgrade in order to fix some plugin issues so have upgraded to 6.1.0 (standard release) and LMS 7.9.3. My question is - would I get better audio performance from the 6.1.0 “Experimental Realtime Kernel”? (And if so, can I convert in situ without have to reinstall and reconfigure LMS from scratch?)?

    The alternative kernel was really for pCP as a player rather than a server.
    So the potential (small?) improvements in audio quality of that player would not apply to you running LMS only.
