I have been using this little DAC here (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01HBJIO2I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for the last years and was really happy with the sound (am still, but would like to upgrade a little ).
So my first question: is there gonna be a major improvement if I upgrade the Pi DAC itself to a let’s say Hifiberry DAC2 HD?
Secondly, I am quite sure that power supply is a thing to worry about when it comes to audio playback. So I have found some cool stuff on the Allo website and cannot decide for which option to go:
get an Allo Kali reclocker which will apparently power itself, Pi and DAC and shall bring quite some improvement (according to a guy who wrote a review on the volumio website)
get an Allo Nirvana SMPS (https://www.allo.com/sparky/nirvana-smps.html) for more stable power supply
completely remove audio conversion from the Pi board environment and outsource it to an external DAC like for example the Schiit Modi 3
Has anyone of you experience with one of the above and could give me some feedback, what he*she thinks? Or also any expertise is well appreciated in case I have not fully understood what I’m doing.
Thanks a lot!
