    Teddy Pardo USB DAC & PiCoreplayer

    Does anyone have some proven Output, ALSA & Buffer settings for PiCoreplayer into this USB DAC please? I'm on PCP 7 but can easily move to 8 if required.
    I had posted my working settings into a user maintained spreadsheet on this forum a few years ago, but can't now find the details.
    I'm getting occasional stuttering which spoils my enjoyment.
    I've tried various settings but I'm not sure what they all mean so I hope someone can advise.

    Thanks Ronnie

    That's the post I made in 2014 (& the one I couldn't find!)

    Cheers

    I couldn't get a sound out of it with the old 1.16 settings, but using USB Audio only & all else blank on 8.1.0 sounds amazing & all the DAC lights work as they should.
    I'm a happy chappy.

    I've updated the spreadsheet BTW.

    Is there anywhere a detailed and not too technical description of what all those Squeezelight settings do?

    That's a good question but I can't answer it.
    I just looked through the spreadsheet for my version of PCP 8.1.0 & a similar sounding DAC then tried that.
    I wouldn't mind knowing what buffer & ALSA mean too.

    It's the Linux "Sound Engine" with all sorts of mixer adjustments and controls. If you look in a Linux distro for a PC you will find a graphical interface rather like the Windows Mixer that controls the sound.

    Surely the buffer is an area of memory that can take in a short section of sound so the music is not interrupted if there is a digital hiccup.
