I have an old RP model B (the 512Mb one with the 34 pins in 2 headers) like this one. I am looking for DAC to fit it it, I just want to improve the sound quality a little without spending a fortune and make use of the old Rpi- I already have a RPi 3 / DAC+ for my “proper” system. The old Pi runs Volumio OK, if a little sluggish, but the headphone jack is pretty bad, even to my non hifi-buff ears.
I am probably going to have to solder on an 8 pin header on the Model B to fit a DAC as per the original HifiBerry instructions, which is fine, but I don’t think HifiBerry still sell the DAC which fitted this header.
The only one I can currently find for sale is this Black Hifi DAC on ebay - looks suspiciously cheap., has anyone tried one?
