Sainsmart Dac

Some how I goofed and bought the wrong board.

I’m using an RP3

This is the board … pi-model-b

It uses PCM5102A chip.

Which Dac board in the list could I use? I tried Generic and a couple others. No sound.


Hi thetazzbot,

This DAC works with the “HiFiBerry DAC” setting.
It doesn’t have hardware volume control. So set the mixer to “None” or “Software”.

Thanks, that did the trick. But I had to reboot the rpi. Even though the system says “Restarting”, it didn’t really come on until I power cycled it.
