DIY Streamer with HiFiBerry DAC2 HD and 11.9" Display


This is my DIY streamer with 11.9" display

Raspberry Pi 4 (2GB) with USB-C Power Support

DAC: HiFiBerry DAC2 HD

Case: HiFi 2000 Galaxy GX388 with reinforced base plate

Display: Waveshare 11.9" with HDMI

OS: Volumio 3 with Now-Playing plugin


This is incredibly nice. I wouldn’t mind making something similar that can sit on the top of my Cambridge Audio ‘One’ receiver system that I use with my Pi4 and Volumio.

Very cool! Can you dim the backlight of the display?

There is a switch on the display board that can be used to adjust the brightness.

But it is not accessible with the housing closed

Looks almost professional. Well done

I love it, well done!


Beautiful setup… Question… Is there enough power out of the usb output to sufficiently
power a 2.5 ssd without any issues?

With the original power supply and the entry max_usb_current=1 in the config.txt should not be a problem.

But I didn’t test it!

Nice job on this!
In process on my own streamer: can you tell me where you ordered the female-to-female RCA adapters that you mounted in the rear of the case?

I ordered here
