Re: how to enable httpd stream with aac encoding ?

AAC is not a lossless codec. You are confusing it with Apple Lossless (ALAC). AAC has a bit rate of 256 kb/s.

Re: iOS client MPoD seems abandoned; what is best alternativ

MPoD does not work properly with iOS 8 or 9, so I need to find an alternative. Of the iOS clients listed in the wiki, only two seem to be active ... MPDluxe and MPDjs. Then there's also a bunch of browser based clients that I haven't even begun to investigate. Any recommendations? Take a look at So...

Re: DSD gets downsampled

What is the DAC supposed to indicate when playing DSD via DOP? For example, when DOP is active my DAC shows "64" for DSD files. If DOP is "no" then I get "176" displayed which indicates that ALSA is converting the DSD file to 176.4KHz PCM. I assume that your DAC is capable of 384 KHz sample rate whi...
