i though ti had a hifiberry, but nope its a pifi dac+, nothing has shown up in a search, so any help wil be much appreciated.


i am wondering about going down the pdif route and fittin a digital to analogue convertor, if this improves the sound.
I found something from https://lb.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewto...p?t=100489
"In volumio, the i2s driver settings for "Hifiberry +" can be applied. I assume the PiFi DAC+ is comparable to the HiFiBerry DAC+ in terms of the used HW."

So, maybe can support it, since tinker can support "Hifiberry +".

You may need to take some try.

I athought i had a hifiberry dac+ because that was the overlay i used on the pi3.

However, i though i would start from scratch and i managed to get it working, and the solution was so simple it was unbelievable.

All i need to do was add "intf:dtovelay=hifiberry_dacplus" to the "hw_intf.conf" file in /boot/

rebooted, went to sound setting in "pulseaudio" and pointed to the hifiberry device and i got sound.
