I’m planning to build a Volumio box and I’m currently looking at getting a DACBerry ONE+ because it has optical input. My planned setup is the following:
- Volumio Box using DACBerry ONE+
- Analog receiver getting the output from the box
- AN LG 65UF8509 TV outputting digital audio via TOSLINK to the DACBerry ONE+
- Apple TV connected to the LG TV
- Several gaming consoles connected to the LG TV
Things I haven’t found any information on, or would like some help/advice with:
Can Volumio or a DAC somehow be configured to get input from optical digital? I would assume so, because that would be the point of using a DAC in the first place Are there any problems combining this with streaming features such as AirPlay or Spotify Connect, i.e. will they step on each others toes? Can Volumio help here or is it purely a Linux/ALSA thing?
Are there any other good ways of getting the audio out of the TV? It doesn’t have any analog output as far as I can tell, so I can’t connect it directly to an analog receiver
A backup plan would be to get a receiver with a bulit-in DAC as well, but since I will have a Volumio box with a proper DAC on I would rather avoid it and get a better analog receiver.
Anyone have experience with similar setups? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
