Problem with Raspberry Pi & 48kHz files.

I am using upmpdcli/mpd_0_21_5 on a Raspberry Pi as a dedicated upnp renderer, with either HiFiBerry DAC+, or USB DAC (I have 2 x RPis). Media server is MinimServer on the same device. This combination works great most of the time except for some files which are .m4a/48kHz/320kbps. I have files whic...

I also understood that aac encoding gave a more efficient result than .mp3 (quality of result relative to a given bitrate). This is why it...

Hi Max and thanks for your prompt response. Sorry about the secrets, but I was trying to avoid being too critical about the user manual, which I am sure someone has spent a lot of time creating, and I was hoping to find some more specific instructions for the Raspberry Pi, which I imagine is a commo...

RaspberryPi compiling suggestions?

I have been trying mpd as a part of turnkey music playing packages such as RuneAudio and PiMusic Box, but I have come across problems which I have been advised are due to the old versions of mpd. Now I am trying to create a dedicated UPnP renderer, by installing a clean new version of Raspbian (or a...
