    My iPhone shows the equalizer parametrically.

    Interesting. This is what the equalizer looks like on my iPhone. Not parametric as far as I know it. Do you have a different one?

    How do you define parametric? I thought it is defined by adjustable frequency bands like you have shown.

    This page seems to have a good overview of the differences

    Syncing iPeng Players and PiCorePlayer

    I'm posting this here first, as I know @pippin has experience with RPi players/servers.

    Iíve been trying PiCorePlayer LMS on an RPi4 to stream to iPeng Players (on a couple of retired iPhones and an old iPad Mini). These synced fairly well together in various combinations.

    Iíve just added a PiCorePlayer / HiFiBerry DAC2 Pro player, which is working OK by itself; but Iím having trouble syncing it with one or several iPeng Players. Thereís sometimes sudden loud distortion, sometimes stuttering, and sometimes the stream just stops completely.

    I know that synchronising is computationally demanding. Am I hoping for too much in trying to sync completely different players like iPengs and PiCP? Or is it worth spending more time trouble-shooting? (And if it is, does anyone have any suggestions about the best place to start?)

    TIA

    Thanks for the quick reply. Just so I'm sure I've understood: you run LMS on PiCorePlayer, and you stream to (among others) a PiCorePlayer SqueezeLite and an iPeng Player, which sync with each other OK?

    If that's right, then my problem must lie elsewhere.

    Thanks again for your help.

    yes run LMS on PiCorePlayer. But donít stream to any squeezelite players synced to other players. Just iPeng players synced to transporter, radio, and touch.

    Ah, thanks very much for that. My problem seems to be specifically with syncing iPeng and PiCorePlayer Squeezelite. Like you, I have no trouble syncing iPeng players. (Sadly, all my SB players have died and gone to SlimDevices Heaven!)

    Anyone else syncing pCP players with iPengs? Any known issues?

    I can try to test this in a day or two.
