  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I purchased this to feed into my Harman Kardon 3490 via TOSLINK (good internal DAC). I initially installed the JustBoom player but went over to the Volumio native player trying to figure out a couple nit picky issues to do with artwork displaying. I figured it out on Volumio and it would probably be fine on the JustBoom player as well knowing what I know now, it’s just a little older version. It works great on a Pi Zero W but when I added a 7″ display the Pi Zero just doesn’t have the umph to run it. I put the board on my Pi 3 and it works great. I highly recommend for a Pi Zero (W) install, works perfectly, sounds great. It takes a riser if you wind up running on a Pi 3 to avoid interference with the display connector.

    I’ve already ordered a Pi Zero DAC for another project. I’m sure it will work just as well but will update. 🙂 This project definitely won’t need a display so it’s perfect. I just pushed the Pi Zero W too far with a connected display. (warning to all)
