Re: Pi 4b not setting my acer monitor at correct resolution

Have you tried this?

Open a terminal:
sudo raspi-config > Advanced options > Resolution > select mode 82
save,exit and reboot.

On the desktop:
Applications menu > Preferences > Screen configuration > Configure > Screens > HDMI-1 > Resolution > 1920x1080 > Configure > Apply > OK

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

Hey Cappers

Look (and maybe ask) on the pink fish media forum and the wigwam forum.

These also have DIY sections which might provide info.

Also slimdevices forum for LMS (including threads on home built stuff).

iQaudio is UK based and Gordon is very helpful (an email might elicit advice).

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

OK, so depending where in the world you are located, and budget available, I would suggest that it should be relatively easy to pick up a used amp. If you have access to any of the hifi forums that are online, you might be able to source a good quality amp. And sometimes a dac hat for the pi. There ...

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

Hi Cappers Most pi based Spotify-Connect clients require that one has the Premium subscription. There are several to choose from. The advatage of using a pi is that one can "contrast and compare" with a couple of sd cards. Which OS is on your 'phone and how do you normally connect to the speakers? A...

Re: Raspberry Pi4 bootloader update package

@timg236

This is just a small thing, but you may get more attention to this thread if your user name is in the same colour as your Raspberry Pi Engineer & Forum Moderator colleagues.

At first, I thought it was a general query post (or complaint).

Re: Audiophile player for Wheezy

If the mdac works on USB, then when you change to out put to your 2704 da you will have to reset the audio output.

If you click on the red more then you will see the info.

A reboot will be required.
