So I’m putting together a christmas present/surprise and when surfing the web I found a post about converting an old Raspberry Pi into a DAC (something that my dad is looking to buy for ages now). So searching through the forums and the web I came to the conclusion that for the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B, the best I2S DAC that I could get (for a reasonable price) was the Durio Sound Pro. Is this true? What do you recommend? If you have one how did you set it up (I saw some people using the ‘hifiberry’ preset) (I know my way around PC’s but I have 0 knowledge about sound gear)?
Another thing. If you own one, how much time did it took to arrive? I live in Portugal so ordering from gravitech.us/duriosoundpro.html would take some time. I just want to know if it would arrive in time for me to set it up. (Gravitech hasn’t replied to any of my emails yet).
Thanks in advance,
