Hi Yatsushiro,

Don't most subwoofers have their own volume control on the cabinet?

Yes, but we have to differentiate different scenarios:
- volume disabled
When you set both mixer controls (Digital and Subwoofer Digital) to 100% all is fine and you can control the volume on your Amplifier.
- software volume
When you set both mixer controls (Digital and Subwoofer Digital) to 100% all is fine and you can control the volume via UI.
But this will degrade sound quality.
- hardware volume
The Allo Piano DAC plus exposes two controls in alsamixer (one for each DAC).
The problem is that we can control only one from our UI. It is not possible to sync both via alsamixer.
We have to find a solution to change both at the same time.

If you need another beta tester, I'm here all ready to go.

Yes would be great to have a beta tester.

Hi, and merry Christmas to you all.

My Kali reclocker with piano 2.1 is on its way to my pi3 with rune - looking forward to it.

Can i just update rune from git nightlies and the piano should work? Also can i set it to 2.0 as i do not have a subwoofer?

Many thanks and have a good start in 2017.

I received the Piano 2.1 DAC some weeks ago, with the Sparky board. Very excited about the sound quality, especially in combination with de KALI reclocker. Till now, I tried Max2Play and Volumio. Both not satisfying. Volumio is very buggy. And the subwoofer volume is not following the player volume. So whenever you change the volumo of the player, you have to adjust the subwoofer volume by hand.

It would be great to have Runeaudio with Sparky/Piano 2.1 support. I want to help with beta-testing, if that helps this product.

I too would like to help.
Received the kali with piano today, but rune does not show any allo piano dac to select in mpd settings. Can someone please le me know hoe to use it with 2.2 from the piano?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tried Volumio and it worked directly after selecting the piano dac as output. :ugeek:

You can drive it, as a 2.0 device, by selecting IQAudio Dac+. As per his post above, Frank is still working on full 2.1/2.2 implementation

Thanks so much for the Tipp, so i guess for rune it is waiting then untill 2.2 can be used. So leave volumio running for now, good that it is only my backup platform, main rig still running rune smoothly with digi + ;) 8-)

Apologies for the gentle nudge, and for interrupting your general support activities, but if you have a 'beta' to test, I'm ready to go!

I've built a sub using a Tannoy cabinet and driver, but replacing the dead Tannoy amp with a TDA7498MV. It's working well with Volumio, but I'd be more happy running Rune...
