I’m setting up my volumio system. The 1GB hdd is hooked to router already, the raspberry pi B loded with volumio 1.5, wifi all set up, but now I need a simple, and inexprensive yet good DAC.
aliexpress.com/item-img/-/2010251356.html anyone tried this one? Any good?
Yes, I have one of these running on my Pi, works very well (choose Hifiberry I2s driver). I think it may be the same unit sold by Geekroo (sparkfun.com/products/11759). Geekroo has a short lirc setup in their HowTos.
I have one too - works great. Hifiberry I2S driver.
Better or worse than hifiberry? Can one get anything better for ~30€?
Well you could try one of the PCM5122 based IQaudIO.com Pi-DACs
30.00 EUR = 23.4721 GBP = 37.5345 USD
Pi-DAC is $38
I’ll sell you one for 30€ plus P&P if the price is ultra sensitive.
Pi-DAC+ is $42
I’m out of stock of these at the moment, more coming in a couple weeks.
PM me if you are interested,
Have you got hardware volume control?
Yes, PCM5122 (the big brother on the PCM5102) has hardware volume control - via i2c commands and exposed as a mixer through ALSA.
Pi-DAC+ in stock,
Pi-DAC (for the older model B raspberry pi) no stock
Pi-AMP+ (2x20w) Class D amp for use with the P-DAC+ will be available next week.
Sorry, gswg, went with the cheapshit one this time.
Maybe a mistake, but have to find out if anyone is better at all.
So, the PCM5102 chineese DAC on a B board and a 24bit/96kHz file… goes or not? In my case, it sounds like a tune in fast forward. Weird. And regarding the last thread on this forum… not gonna work? Ever?
Maybe I should get something that works. Having problems with my diyinhk 5102.
Just wanted everyone to know that the dac now works ok:)
Solution: format card and flash v1.51
