Pi3+Kali+Piano2.1 not working

I have raspberry pi 3 with kali reclocker on it and a piano 2.1 dac connected via ribbon cable. The pi is connected to my router via ethernet cable. The reclocker is powered by 5v 3amp meanwell power supply. With volumio installed the system boots up and I can access it via browser on my network. Once I select I2S Piano 2.1 in the setup and I reboot the system it is no longer accessible and does not appear as an active client in the router interface. I have tried this with Volumio 2.457 and 2.502. The behavior is consistent. I’m probably missing something obvious but can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Any advice would be appreciated.
