I’ve recently bought one of the really cheap ES9023 I2S boards, very happy with it considering the price but I didn’t check before hand if it had a hardware mixer. I’ve realised it is quite important for my setup so I’ve moved to a software mixer, obviously I’d prefer a hardware mixer.
Is there a definitive list of I2S DACs with hardware mixers? So far I’ve come to the conclusion:
ES9023 : No
PCM5102 : No
PCM5122 : Yes
