I've got this problem. HiFy "sees" JPLAYFemto and it runs perfectly. That is, asks you to open Spotify - and you can choose JPLAYFemto etc and the progress bar starts music running. But instead I get loud static noise and no music.

Now FLAC and wav files play perfectly.
I have two different dac setups. 1. is a Topping D50s USB DAC and 2. is a Douk Audio U2 USB to spdif converter going to a DAC-AH dac. Music plays fine.

So the closest I got with the Spotify was using the Topping dac - I got music but very distorted and crackling - and this is all under ULTRASTREAM Daclink 20.

I also setup ASIO Bridge - and I'd increased buffering from 256 to 512 on the Topping to get that result.

But when I went to reproduce it - again it didn't cooperate.

I've tried Xtream - all the buffer and Daclink settings - JPLAY Classic all Daclinks Ultrastream all Daclinks.
I've tried "Forcing" 24 and 32 bit. I always check in Topping I've got the right 24 or 32 bit.

No hibernate no Bitstream volume.

I didn't play with Throttle.! That's always on..?

I did notice with the Douk Audio converter that ASIO said it had a buffer of 800. But there's no user interface for that dac driver.

All I could think of was maybe the driver with the Topping needed finer graduation steps for the buffer. Would that be right.? Or, no..

Cheers, Rob (NZ)

I need to add that Spotify works perfectly on its own thru' the computer and the phone app. Just not with JPLAY and HiFy.

And I also uninstalled / installed the HiFy app. No progress there either.

[SOLVED] Sorry I just had to adjust DLNA codec in Hify settings to MP3. Simple. Thanks. R.
