The psu is the best ifi power I have read but many people say that allo psu is not bad. Help me to decide between this two configuration, what is the best ? Bossdac o mambo berry o piano 2.1 plus kali. Thanks .


For what it's worth, I have recently set up a Raspberry Pi 2 + Kali + Piano 2.1. Initially, I had also planned to use the ifi 5v power supply, but found that it created a high-pitched whine/buzz in this set-up. The noise disappeared when I switched to using the Allo 5v 3A power supply instead. I got a refund on the ifi power supply.

I chose the Piano 2.1 over the standard Piano (even though I don't need a subwoofer output) as I read that it uses a superior DAC. I am currently running the board in 2.0 mode, but hope to try out the "dual mono" mode (one chip per channel) when it is enabled (due imminently according to Allo).

It is a personal preference that only you can make.

Pure tech options based, the 2.1 Piano gives you more features and (as mentioned elsewhere) if the dual mono function becomes available, even more.

But it is up to you :) If you have the oppertunity, listen to both and than decide (or buy both and sell one later on)

Hello,
my BOSS is on the way, posted on 01/03/2017!
But only today I read that the 1st revision would have a small problem. :o :shock:

What is the possibility of receiving a revised board?

Sorry for my poor english! :oops:

Edit:

I was answered as soon as posted!

The discussions on the forum is about Kali and not Boss Dac.

Sorry for the confusion

BOSS arrived.
Raspberry pi 3 worked.
It does not work with Raspberry pi Zero (1.2, 1.3).
However, choosing HiFiBerry DAC + instead of BOSS will produce sound, but it is twice as fast!

Yep, BOSS works only with PI 2 or PI3.
There are no drivers for earlier versions...

Boss arrived, upgraded volumio to the version from 7th of March and.... doesn't work.
It seems to modules are not loaded automatically. It is not detected in GUI anyhow as an output. How to troubleshoot properly?

Did you enable I2S DACs, select it from i2s DAC menu and reboot?
