    For my 1st tests I use the Headphone jacket.
    When a song in the playlist is finished and nothing is playing I have loud white noise (Rauschen) which is not stopping.

    Don`t you close the Audio channel of the player when nothing is played?

    I tryed different Soundcard settings like hw, plughw (Alsa).

    Hello eriche,

    Are using only the default audio output on the raspberry pi, or do you have an external sound card, and if you have, what is the brand ?

    you can solve this problem by using this command in the squeezelite advanced settings:

    -C <timeout> Close output device when idle after timeout seconds, default is to keep it open while player is ‘on’

    Please take a look on this page for more details:


    also there is Lowpassfilter and Crossfeed Level Adjuster for Headphones.This is a filter for audiophile usage to change lowpass filter cut frequency and crossfeed level of the audio-output. These settings take effect when using the output „-o headphones“ in advanced settings of Squeezelite. More infos about the filter technique can be found on http://bs2b.sourceforge.net/

    Thanks I will give it a try – with the DAC the sound is much better I can say.
    The timeout option 4 sure will do a good job – nice to know this options exists.
