Re: little clicks and pops

Hi there. Jut to let you know, I never actually managed to completely get rid of those pops and clicks. Changing firmware, extrooting or killing all spurious services never helped. The only solution that worked for me was downsampling to 320kbps VBR mp3. However my my player in time developed some o...

Re: little clicks and pops

Well. I played a flac album yesterday evening on my hifi and listened to another album on headphones and I am quite sure I did heard some clicking. Now clicks are very rare, and occur once every couple of minutes and are audible only on quite airy and silent material, like a solo vocal or a solo ins...

Re: little clicks and pops

I've been using it as a digital transport for my DAC, to play mp3s (since .flacs were clicking) to my amp. I just don't happen to own any portable interface (like iphone /android) to control mpd. I only have a bulky laptop and kindle. Hence idea of controlling it via kindle. Today I've just written ...

Re: little clicks and pops

I've just managed to install everything on openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs-10.03.1-rc5 with extroot, nfs, samba, alsa drivers However I think, I've been still hearing some tiny clicks on .flacs, but this may now be caused due to files being copied in the background onto my new drive. I will check it more ...

Re: little clicks and pops

Hi, great news!
I'd be also interested in details. Like for now, I don't know where to get the image from and what packages exactly are needed to get alsa runnig (I did it once but that was a month ago and it just evaporated off my mind).

Re: little clicks and pops

I've been busy lately and haven't enough time to listen to my asus. Sorry if I disappoint somebody, but I've noticed that pops and clicks are still there on both my 500gp /520gu What I also noticed is that they only appear on: - .flac - (that's for sure) - on high-rate mp3s as well some high rate mp...

Re: little clicks and pops

Got 500gp today. Installed Kamikaze 8.09 on it plus mightyohm's mpd/mpc and so far it has been working ok without crackling. So It looks like more RAM/and uhci driver (instead of ohci) helped.

Re: little clicks and pops

Managed to install alsa drivers on 520gu, but it didn't help. Clicking is still there. Someone elsewhere suggested that it's because of interrupts. I'll try then with 500gp and hdd when I get them...

Re: little clicks and pops

ok, thanks anyway,

I've seen some posts here and here of people having this problem (search for "crackl")
So it seems like it is build/driver related. Allegedly ALSA drivers would cure it, but I read this in quite an old post

I'll post here If I can nail it down

Re: little clicks and pops

No, I don't mean noise. I mean these kind of clicks and crackles you could hear on a regular (analogue) old-style LP disc, but not that often... every a couple of seconds (some 2 to 5 seconds maybe - don't know what it depends on). Sometimes more frequent sometimes less. I mean like you would be cl...
