DIY Streamer with HiFiBerry DAC2 HD and 11.9" Display

I follow your project and I am stuck on how to install the display in the case.
Can you share 3D file for display holders?
Thank you.

Sorry for the late reply.
Here are the two templates.



Congratulations for your project. It looks amazing and very stylish. I plan to set up a similar streamer device, and the photos, particularly the first one, have been very helpful to have a clear idea of how to arrange the components.

I would be extremely grateful if you could provide full details on how you installed the power button, including information on the wiring and the software settings. I own a IQAudio DAC, which I believe is esentially the same as your HiFiBerry.

Thank you very much in advance

Hello, sorry for the very late reply.

The power switch is only used to start the Pi. Switching off is only on the software side.
The switch is connected to GPIO 3 (5) and Ground (6).
The LED of the switch is connected to GPIO 26 (36) and Ground (37).
It is controlled with the “GPIO Control” plug-in.

I hope I was able to help you a little.
Have fun with your project.

If possible to have a parameter of gpio control to use? Thanks

If possible to have your config txt for the display? And possible have a file to insert in peppymeter folder? I have that problem

my config.txt

initramfs volumio.initrd

include userconfig.txt
hdmi_timings=320 0 80 16 32 1480 0 16 4 12 0 0 0 60 0 42000000 3
display_rotate=3 #1: 90; 2: 180; 3: 270

Volumio i2s setting below: do not alter


For peppymeter i have used this:

and replace custom_5 (1920x480) all file internal, but don’t work for me

didn’t know that your screen has a height of 1480 a width that seems normal but a height not.

I have copy this, is not correct?

@Wheaten hi buddy max_framebuffer_height=1480 is this normal ?

yes, depends on screen.

@mchief looks really professional!

I’ve made something similar with Waveshare 11.9" display, HiFiBerry Digi2 Pro and RGB button.
It runs on Raspberry CM4 powered via POE

Code available at GitHub - i0466lt/mustang_streamer: Waveshare display and RGB Pushbutton for Volumio3

Hi mchief,
I’m a bit in trouble because in my 11.9" display the album art remains in the middle of the display, while in yours it remains on the left side (my preferred). Did you created/used a script to modify the Volumio default album art positioning or some additional plugin?

Many thanks, your is the most beautiful project till now :slight_smile:


Where did you find this chassis? Love it. Did you have to cut out the front for the lcd?

He used NowPlaying plugin to reorganize screen.

Yes, i use the „Now Playing“-Plugin!

I buy the Case here

And i cut out the front here

Hi mchief, what an AWESOME streamer. LOVE IT :slight_smile:

Few questions:

  1. I cannot get any sound out of my Hifiberry DAC2 HD. Which I2S DAC did you select in Volumio audio output settings? I tried Hifiberry Dac2 HD, Allo BOSS, Allo BOSS2 but none of them output any audio.

  2. How did you get the peppymeter screensaver working with Fusion DSP? I tried this few days ago but it didnt work so when i asked in the forums i was told that they are not compatible.

  3. Which Volumio OS version are you using?

  4. Could you please paste here your config.txt and userconfig.txt?

Many thanks! :slight_smile:


Hi asemev!
Thank you!

I have chosen HIFIBerry DAC 2 HD!

FusionDSP works with Peppy. I have selected DSD native in Alsa Configuration!

I’m using version 3.661
Peppy 2.0

I’m on vacation right now! I can show the configs on Monday!

Thank you so much mchief!

Have a wonderful vacation and very much looking forward to seeing your configs on Monday :smiley:

Have fun!
