Hi,

Just got the driver c code from the also tech support team.
https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/bl ... iano-dac.c

Please advise how to add it to dietpi?
Shall it be compiled and launched, or somehow embedded in dietpi image?

Need your help to get it done.

Hi Janis,

Looks like there is a dtb already available: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... audio.dtbo

So, should just be a case of adding the following to /DietPi/config.txt:

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=allo-piano-dac-pcm512x-audio
Reboot, then check soundcard exists with:

Code: Select all

aplay -l

Thank you, that worked!

I have now tested Allo DACs - they are amazing. The best sounding DACs I have seen for Raspberry so far. Much better than Audiophonics V3.
Will post my review on Roon Community site.

Excellent, great to hear :)

I'am still enjoying the JustBoom DAC HAT and Odroid HiFi Shield 2. Do you have either, would be good to get a comparison?

Thank you!
Will try it.

Do you know why AirPlay has stopped working if on same network are running several Raspberry PIs with Shairport?
