Today I tested my Bluesound Node 2 player, a Raspberry pi with Volumio with Allo DigiOne spdif output and a Windows PC with JRiver and Topping D10 DAC as USB spdif converter.
Why does the Node 2 player plays around 3 dB louder?
Does the Node 2 shifts bits in the spdif?
I compare the systems by a remote spdif switch, due to the output difference this is very difficult to judge for the Node 2.
I am very curious how this is possible.
