Ok, I fixed this one !
my asound.conf is referring to /home/pi/.alsaequal.bin
And as per your recommendation I did every steps as root, so, of course I don't have /home/pi

I changed the directory to root et voilà !

Oh, and I forgot to mention, that this time I choose Jessie as this is the one I had working with the regular Raspbian.

It looks like I was too optimistic...

I have moded my asound.conf as per previous post
And this ok but, still cant make squeezelite working with my asound.conf
Squeezelite work by itself but not with my plugins

root@DietPi:~# /usr/bin/squeezelite-armv6hf -o equal
Failed to open controls file:/home/pi/.alsaequal.bin.
[18:58:28.483271] test_open:124 playback open error: Operation not permitted
[18:58:28.483675] output_init_common:373 unable to open output device


This time I don't know what to do ???

Thank you Dan and anybody for any idea...

Whatever the result here my offer for a free I2S sound card is still valid Dan !

Ok, now it works, I'm probably too old, I had to modify the directory at two different lines.

So this threads close here !

Don't loose your time with this anymore Dan !

And don't forget to send a mail should you want me to send you an I2S sound card.

Best regards,
Jean

Just a quick reply before heading off for the night :)

You need to change the following in /etc/asound.conf:
/home/pi/.alsaequal.bin
to
/root/.alsaequal.bin

I'am out of time for today, but I will run the tests at my end tomorrow and get back to you. And thanks for the continued offer, appreciate it.
