there is some confusion in the article although it helped me get the DAC working ± fine. For which I thank you.
- “Changing sample rate” section
- there is no “~/.config/pipewire/pipewire.conf” file… nor “pipewire” folder. Files from “/usr/share/pipewire/” must be copied into “/home/user/.config/pipewire/”
- “default.clock.rate” - here is not clear whats about. Why “192000” or why is default “48000” when default for computer/digital audio is 44100 Hz? If I’m not wrong.
- “USB DAC’s” section
there is no mention that in: “Volume control/Configuration” must be device profile set to digital (“Digital stereo (IEC958) Output” or something like that) instead of analog. That’s crucial for USB DAC’s and another similar devices.
this part is super confusing:
" Copy the default configuration of
alsa-monitor.conffor pipewire-media-session into
~/.config/pipewire/media-session.d. Then append a new rule-block similar to the following one:"
There is missing link to “pipewire-media-session” gitlab? (https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pipewire/media-session) and typo “for/from”. There is no “alsa-monitor.conf” file on the disk so I guess it should be like that.
I got no idea how put more supported formats and sample rates into rules (it’s an array ot whole “actions block”… ?). It should be described more clearly.
