    I am connecting the ME trough the usb port and I can see different proposition in the advanced option of the DLNA renderer, but none of them seems working !
    The issue is no sound at all, on the fixed output or on the headphone output…
    I have tried also with the shairplay and same result.

    On the config of the PI3 for the sound output I have selected ‚USB soundcards‘

    Any idea ?

    Hello try front:CARD=DAC,DEV=0 or hw:CARD=DAC this should also work iec958:CARD=DAC,DEV=0

    Also you may need to add an ip address in the shairplay settings it will normally show the right one to use in the example then give the Pi a static address encase it moves

    Hello I’ve tried both ones you mention but no luck !
    I don’t have issue to connect to airplay protocol, I can play some music but no sound is coming up from ME 🙁
    I’ve already spent too much time playing with the settings, even on the Raspberry one… even started from scratch with a new image from max2play…

    Hello i use a Meridian Explorer 2 do you get audio normally say from a network drive or local audio files and it’s just the Shairplay which isn’t working ps did you pick the DAC in advanced settings of Shairplay plus add the ip address of the Pi

    Hello try adding hw:1,0 in Command Line Options in Audioplayer

    It didn’t succeed with the Audio Player MDP as well… maybe a stupid question, as I only need the airplay function, do I need to have the „Squeezelite“ status on running ?
    Here my debug info for audioplayer:
    ### Configuration of Audioplayers
    YMPD_PARAMETER=–webport 8081

    Are you able also to use the headphone output from the ME2 ? With volume control ?

    I’ll give a try with the squeezelite running and with IP of my PI in the advanced setting…
    Thanks anyway for your help 😉

    Dear eborr,

    Sorry to inform you that we do not support Meridian Explorer USB DAC, Please take a look on the audio cards that we offer:


    Best Regards,
