LyraT 4.3 board sound quality

Postby famlee » Fri May 31, 2019 3:27 pm

Hi,

Me and my colleagues are testing a LyraT 4.3 board, and running example https://github.com/espressif/esp-adf/tr ... e_http_mp3.

We have problems with the sound quality of playback and it seems that the sampling is too low and nowhere near 16 Bit or 25 Bit at 41100hz.

Is there some setting we are missing to make it work?

Thanks a lot for any feedback.

Hi,

We are still unable to find a solution to our problem. To be able to replicate the situation please see all the source material we used as well as the recording of the playback that has tons od squeaks and other sounds it should not have.

I have attached a zipped folder with the following content:

1. Source Code 2. Log 3.Song 4. Recording of the playback.

I hope this could point us in the right direction.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi,

I discover the same problem when i use cpu core 1 in decoder task

don't use cpu core settings in decoder initialization - comment it out
/*
mp3_dec_cfg.task_core = 1;
*/
use only defaults settings

best regards,

Hello everyone!

I would like to confirm that I'm running into the same issue on my LyraT 4.3 board. I tried the solution suggested by Eugene but it didn't work. I believe it has something to do with filtering/re-sampling. How to test out the decoder without re-sampling?

I was supposed to jump-start the development of my audio product and get where I want faster with the ESP32 ADF but this turned out to be a real bummer!

I hope someone can find a solution for this soon!

Thanks

As expected earlier, it was the re-sampling of audio data fed into the decoder. I have changed the sample rate of the original mp3 file to 48000 and now the playback quality seems fine. By the way, wav decoder also works fine!
