Audio buffer size?

If it were to be increased, what’s a safe value for the Audio Buffer setting based on the performance of the Raspberry Pi without causing issues?

As I play a lot of hi res and DSD audio I thought it might help.

You have to think in opposite terms. :slight_smile:

Increasing the audio buffer actually taxes resources. Decreasing it frees memory and CPU paging. Try setting the buffer to 128kb and then keep buffer at 10% before play. MAKE SURE YOU RESTART. This is important. Cheers!


I use 8M w/o problem.
I see Volumio uses almost all the RAM (30M free). I supposed it is a linux thing as I dont hear any dropouts.
