Hi,

   You have to download sparky_sd_vana_1_4_100817 image from allo site then you have to burn the image to your SD card.

You should have Ethernet LAN ,then only squeezebox player will work.

Please find the link for both Vanaplayer technical and configuration manual

Hi,

   This device Reduces the output ripple/noise of any PSU to almost negligible levels (less than 5mV up to 1Mhz).And feeds clean power.

Technical Questions / Re: HOW TO GET THE WIFI DONGLE TO WORK IN VOLUMIO
« on: August 09, 2017, 08:54:58 PM »
Hi Steven,

    After connecting USB wifi dongle to sparky you have to connect LAN cable to sparky and then you need to access through LAN by entering the IP address in the browser(check the IP address using mac scanner or directly connecting monitor to the sparky board ) .

After accessing through LAN you have to configure your wifi by enabling  wifi  in volumio and it will list out available network then you have to give  user name and password of your wifi .

Then remove the LAN cable and check which IP is detected by volumio (from your wifi network) and access the device by entering the IP addresss in the browser.

PIANO HI-FI DAC / Re: No audio
« on: July 28, 2017, 02:56:54 AM »
Hi,

   If you want the on-board Raspberry Pi sound devices to be enabled then  we need to change dtparam=audio=on.

LED of piano DAC is glowing?

Please download volumio image from below link for RPI

https://volumio.org/get-started/

And flash the image then enable I2S DAC and select output device and DAC model as Allo Piano and check.

Hi,

   dtparam=audio=on should be on only.

After booting volumio image you have to select Output device as Allo piano dac and I2S dac should be on.

Please find below link for your reference.And try to play the song

http://61.12.17.162:9098/sparky/volumio.JPG

Note:Then also not working means download fresh volumio image and flash the image to sd card and check.Select audio out put device as allo-piano dac in volumio gui and enable I2S as shown in above link.

 2. You can control the mute of the DAC with the GPIO6 of the RPI.

 3.13th pin(GPIO23 of RPI) of J19 connector is used for  shutdown control of VOLT AMP board.
