Hi Josef, I am not expert in the Linux system.
I have insert the sd card in the Ubuntu PC and I found 3 folders but not the folder app.
What have I to do?
Where can I find the file dacs.json?
Thanks.

Hi VolumioDaniele,

It‘s easier.

Just leave your Volumio device running

In your browser go to [ip-address of your device]/dev and enable ssh access

Ssh to your device and cd /volumio/app/plugins/system_controller/i2s_dacs

Sudo nano dacs.json

Insert the line mentioned above

Save and exit

Reboot

Choose the Sabre dac in the web ui

Reboot

Enloy listening :D


Best Regards
Josef

Hi Josep, sorry but I don’t understand.
This system is by me very unknown.
Can you tell me every step?
Thanks and sorry.

This means you have to alter 1 file, which is leading to loosing possibility to do an OTA upgrade of Volumio as for now (December 2019)

I did not test the KALI edition but the normal one - should not make a difference.

The trick is to add 1 line to the "dacs.json" file.
The driver is already integrated.
(Should be very easy for the Volumio team to integrate it....)

If you want to give it a go send me a PM - i don't want to publish the hack here as long as i'm not sure the Volumio team wants to have it integrated....



In case this only needs a line for the dacs.json file, then I see no problem with supporting it as long as the identification string (sound card name) does not clash with an existing one (which you have tested and obviously did not).
Can you send us the line?
(Might not be integrated immediately because of the upcoming holidays)

Hi ADvolumio01,

Even if you did only post quotes without any question - i'd like to help you - but - i need to know where to start.

What system do you use to deploy - Windows, Mac, Linux ?
Where do you get stuck with it ? - opening a ssh session, editing the dacs.json file ?

Tell me more about your setup and skills.

Best Regards
Josef

Let's hope the "vacation mode" of the dev team will not last too long for us hungry users :D

Hi Josef, in the browser (Windows 10) I insert the ip address/dev and I enter in the “page” ... I enable SSH and write “/volumio/app/.../i2s_dacs/dacs.json”.
The system gives me an http address that I insert in the browser.
After long time it opens a freezed window and I can not do anything. In this windows I don’t find the list of supported dacs.
If you can help me, I will be very happy. Thanks a lot.
Daniele

Hi gkkpch, any news about my question?
I bought the Audiphonics Sabre 9038 ... I would use it with Volumio.
Can you help me?
