    All groovy now... Thanks so much for your time with that

    BTW, It doesn't seem to like hardware volume control. When I press SET with the hardware option it resets to software. Also, not tried any upsampling yet, does anyone know if this works well with the Boss.

    I've selected Very high quality SOX which works fine too, oh and .DSF files play fine too
    Ah that's great, glad you got it sorted.

    Not tried changing anything from default as I didn't want to break it lol

    That's great! Good work. I may give it a go, but have never ssh'd before: is using putty fairly self explanatory? Just look for the Pi IP address then enter the code into the dialogue window, hit enter? I bet it's not that simple

    Just googled for some instructions, and it looks like you're telling the truth!

    Trying it tonight, fingers crossed...

    EDIT to add:

    Done!

    Great how-to list mikeyb, much appreciated, a bit faffy with all the reboots (and I suspect possibly a bug as I kept getting the message to reboot reappear and so could have been stuck in an endless loop!), but worth it in the end.

    All sounding good, but not had enough time to critically listen to the different filters/kernels/upsampling to 384khz yet.

    Would this last option cause any problems with the Pi overheating? And any difference between 16/24/32 384khz? It's all a bit above my pay grade...

    Thanks again, very pleased to have it up an running. Don't know why I've been so scared of Putty before, piece of proverbial

    When a set of direct-stream URLs emerges, and assuming there is codec support in ffmpeg for the audio format, I'll start testing :-)

    Hi Mel,

    Thats really interesting. Makes perfect sense now. Kudos to BBC and hopefully at some point the FLAC streams can be played by MPD.

    Hi Luke

    I've been running the Pi3 at 384kHz upsampling with no heatsinking added for two days now, five-six hours continuously I get 55-60 degrees showing on the 'audio info' panel - shown at the bottom of the window along with CPU info. so nothing to worry about.

    I'm using spdif out of the Pi3 (Justboom Digi HAT) into a Chord Mojo DAC which seems to work at 32bit all the time, I've found that setting the sample rate at max bit rate (32bit) and the frequency at max (384kHz) gives the smoothest with most resolution after a couple of days listening, but this could change after a few weeks after more playing about as I'm switching types of PSU and tweaking cabling etc. it's a great place to start. 32bit/384kHz works really well.

    I've used MacBook Pro with Audirvana 3.x and bootcamp Windows 10 with Bughead, just tried out Bughead again using the same setup with Mojo as a preamp (with no passive pre in the chain to be a fair comparison) I have changed quite a few things since listening to Bughead via usb. Once set to Profession Mode it's better than the Moode setup, on my current system, better sense of depth and realism. The Pi3 with Moode Audio Player is very good indeed though and crazy quality for the cost, I'd place it next to Audirvana on the Mac (usb) especially once a serious linear PSU is implemented, this makes a world of difference.

    Hi rod,

    Thanks for the interesting and informative reply, great stuff. I was uncertain as to whether the Pi was able to do the upsampling, but that is reassuring, ta. Even though my pi 2b has a lesser processor I will give it a go! Really interested that you could perceive a difference, going to see whether I do too...

    Cheers

    Yes ive been upsampling with a 2b for some time now. It will handle any of the levels if you dac will
