Pi 4, analog out and DAC

I'm kind of curious how hard to hear the headphone jack would be if you were to try AirPlay to Volumio and fed that into a stereo.


I am playing files from a homemade NAS (another Raspberry pi plus a 2T HDD). The headphones are Sony MDR7506 which are 106db/mW. That's probably more sensitive than average. I can't opine on AirPlay.

Listening volume is set at 20-30 on the Volumio scale. At 50 it's uncomfortable to listen. Note that I'm just experimenting and not recommending. For what it's worth, I used the same headphones in a Chromecast Audio with BubbleUpnp as the controler. Even the lowest volume setting was fatigueingly loud.

Hello,

Has actually someone tried an ALLO BOSS DAC 1.2 with a Pi4?
Their specs say it is compatible only with Pi2 and Pi3

thanks for your answer

Looks like it works, maybe Allo are a bit slow updating their website.
