Volumio Version: 2.834
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3
DAC: HiFi Berry AMP2
I’m using the Volumio more than year with the HiFiBerry AMP2.
It is bit strange that I can’t change the volume for quite mode playing.
Actually if change the volume for 1, it is still quite loud.
In the 2019 there was HiFiBerry AMP2 selection and it was run fine with fine sound selection.
I wondering from someone who have similar issue or what is the right setting solution for the HiFiBerry AMP2?
If I set the I2C for HiFiBerry AMP - there is no sound, so I set it for the HiFiBerry DAC Plus.
DSD Playback mode: DSD Direct
Mixer Type: Software
With this configuration there is sound but, low volume settings (for example: 1) is still loud.
I just installed hifiberry AMP2 on a Pi, have another pi with the original hifiberry amp working. I noticed no selection for amp2 but there is one regular hifiberry amp selection. Its showing an ALSA error when trying to play files and no sound.
@Vas_Dau that is because hifiberry explicitly states that the AMP2 is to be used via the DAC-plus overlay, not the amp overlay
@iven have you tried to change the maximum volume in alsamixer within the shell? I have used this some time ago but do not remember if it was in volumio or simply raspian. In raspian, it works flawlessly. Anyhow, balbuze is correct to suggest to change the mixer in case you had it wrong. In case you want to set a system wide max volume try to set the alsamixer to 50%, that is what I did with amp2 and merus12070 as they are way too loud
Hi there, I am bringing up an old thread here, hope that’s ok.
I recently built a new Volumio streamer with the Hifiberry Amp2.
I was hoping that the volume buttons on our phones/tablets would control the volume of Volumio when in the app. However, I only seem to be able to control the volume with the slider that comes up from the bottom right - Zones and Outputs.
Attached is my volume config screen to show what I have done. For the DAC type, I have Hifiberry Amp2 although in searching some old threads, I see people using DAC2 as the driver.
