A Pi-DAC+ and matching case for it and my Pi.
This really is an awesome piece of kit and looks exceptionally well made. The Pi-DAC+ is sitting on a Pi2B computer I had spare. It will also work on a Pi3.
I tried various ways of driving the Pi-DAC+ board;
1. Raspbian Wheezy and Python - much too fiddly to get working
2. OSMC - this works and coupled with an IR remote it works quite well though it is 'clunky' and it needs a screen
3. RuneAudio - absolutely brilliant once it is set up (not one for beginners!) and works 'blind'
What does it do? It is a music server connected to my HiFi system. The DAC+ really does deliver high quality sound, far better than the Pi's native audio output. The Pi plus RuneAudio acts as a server which can be controlled by any computer connected to my home network, including my Android smart phone and tablet.
I have a pretty large music collection - 50 years plus collecting records, CDs and now digital downloads. All the music has been converted to mp3 files and stored on a huge HDD. I set this to be shared on my network and my Pi box can access it and be controlled by my phone.
A highly recommended piece of kit and software.
