Linux AudioEngine testers - Linux only
Hey everybody,

I wanted to try the AudioEngine branch for quite some time now and today I finally had some spare time to try out a shitload of testfiles. ;-) So far I'm very impressed with what you guys have archieved here, mad props to gnif and DDDamian for keeping up this complex work making XBMC even better!

My Setup:
Nvidia GT430 Card, Ubuntu 11.10 x86, Nvidia 180 Drivers, Denon 4310

Successfully tested (at least 2 different files for each format):
Dolby True HD 5.1
Dolby True HD 7.1
FLAC Stereo 96kHz
FLAC Stereo 192kHz
FLAC 5.1 96kHz

All played flawlessly, no stuttering, no drops and no sync/signal loss.

I had problems playing
Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) 7.1 (tried two files, both stutter/video plays *very* slow and no audio output at all). I'm not even sure if that format is used anywhere, but I had two files to test. Debug log playing both DD+ 7.1 files can be found here:

DTS-HD MA 5.1 Terminator Demo (stuttering/slow playing, distorted video; stuttering audio that stop later on). Full debug log can be found here: and the Demo/Sample can be downloaded from and

All the files I tested were downloaded from excluding the FLAC files, I found those on another site hosting a few High-Res SACD conversions:

Apart from the sample/demo files I tried Tron: Legacy and the LOTR Trilogy for a nice DTS-HD MA experience - both kick some serious a$$ soundwise! ;-)

Hope this feedback helps in a way and thanks again for bringing XBMC's audio output to the HD age.
