I bought a Weiliang Audio ES9038Q2M I2S DAC (PCB and Display only) from AliExpress (aliexpress.com/item/3298437 … 4c4d96c5bv). When it’s connected via the 3 I2S lines to my RPi3B+ running Volumio 2.619, using the generic I2S device option, it produces very distorted music in the right channel, nothing in the left, and the display states it’s DSD when it’s actually a FLAC PCM file.
I can change the sample rate, but I get the same distorted sound: a 48KHz rate gets reported as 2.82MHz DSD by the DAC, 96KHz as 5.664MHz, 192KHz as 11.28MHz, etc.
I thought a simple I2S connection should just work? I’ve connected the three I2S lines correctly (LRCK, DATA, BLCK). I have previously used an Audiophonics DAC Sabre ES9023 I2S without any problems.
I’ve searched the forum, but I cannot find any clear advice/instructions. Any help would be much appreciated. I don’t want to waste £30!
