Are you working on a project with a 9038q2m chip?
I think I had read that on another thread.

I am upgrading my headphone setup from a to b.
Now i am looking for a high quality DAC. But on a budget. Got my eyes on a smsl M8.

Now i am running hifiberry Digi+ to an smsl Sanskrit DAC.

The Boss V1.2 sounds great to me. But....

Is it possible to feed the Pi with USB Audio?
Or put on an extra board for optical or/and coaxial inputs?
So i can use the Pi as a dedicated dac with other sources?

You can attach something to the USB and read files from it

You can use a DigiOne for spidif out (top of RPI)

You canot combine a Boss and DigiOne

Thanks for clarification.... Allready thought something like this.

I have a tinkerboard on its way and feed it with usb to a dedicated DAC.

It's a bit offtopic but it would make a nice upgrade if you guys came up with something to add extra inputs!
I don't mind put it on my stack of Pi, Isolator and Boss :D
RPI3, Allo Isolator, Allo Boss, NAD D3045, MBQuart 800 and lots, lots of music.

Which is a better sounding combination?

1. RPI3 + Boss 1.2 DAC, OR
2. Tinker board + Boss 1.2 DAC

Got my Boss 1.2 DAC today.

I replaced it and played my favourite audiophile quality flac & wav files thru it. With the jumper on, I connected the IFI power to the dac.

Wow! What a wonderfully clear and musical sound.

ALLO, you have done a great job on this DAC. Appreciated !!
