My current setup is Raspberry Pi B+ and hifiberry Digi +. It has it’s own chassis, dual power (separate for Raspberry, separate for hifiberry) and this performed excellent with older SonicFrontiers DAC (CD quality). Now with new (L.K.S. Audio) I’m looking for high performance board capable of playing every material the DAC can handle (384K, DSD), so in reality only the USB port is necessary for it (no need to care about I2s).
Currently for some reason on USB connection the DAC is found without any issues (Amanero board) but I have drops in the signal even with 44K.
I’ve read the comment that even cubietruck may have issues with hi-res, that’s why I was thinking about Cubieboard 4 or Odroid XU4.
There are actually 2 questions:
- which platform would be the most suitable to do the job
- is there any Volumio port I could use on that platform
