...i remember you asked here on the forum - and i told you there is no "giity gritty" to use this "still unsupported" Audiophonics board.
I'm sorry for not guessing you could have troubles with the configuration.

Should you be in hurry, i would offer an ALLO BOSS hat, which is supported out of the box, together with an ALLO 5V/3A HQ power supply for an exclusive trade off exclusively for you.

It's not really complicated.

Tell me where you got stuck to get further.
Is it..
- get an ssh connection to your device
- how to edit the 1 file
- save it and reboot ?

Don't expect the Volumio staff is fixing that in a short time, because this board unfortunately and simply is currently not supported - and they have to work on more important tickets..

one way would be to stay patient gkkpch will integrate it one day, as he said
the other way is to frickle around with getting 1 single additional text line into that linux config file - i am willing to help you.

As i told you - i have got the same hat board in my test bench - and it is working - AND is sounding pretty well to me.

I'm happy if i'm able to help - but please answer my 3 questions.

Best Regards
Josef


Hi Josef
I open the Chrome browser in windows pc, I digit the Ip and I click on "SSH enable".
I insert

/volumio/app/plugins/system_controller/i2s_dacs/dacs.json

and the browser give me an htp address, I put this on Chrome browser and the system open a screen that I don't can modify.
I think than procedure is wrong.
Can I have to do?

If I have to use putty I don't know what to do.

Thanks.
Daniele

Hi, just two clarifications:

1) The DAC works by setting the ES9028 but I can't adjust the volume ... having a Rotel RA-10 without remote control ... it's a problem.

2) I used Putty and I typed SUDO NANO DACS.JSON, a window opens where I find the mentioned line that you say to insert :shock:

Hi Daniele,

Yes, ssh into your device, then:

1.)
cd /volumio/app/plugins/system_controller/i2s_dacs

2.)
sudo nano dacs.json

3.)
Insert the following line: (in 1 line !)
Code: Select all
{"id":"audiophonics-es9028q2m-dac","name":"Audiophonics I-Sabre ES9028Q2M","overlay":"i-sabre-q2m","alsanum":"1","mixer":"Digital","modules":"","script":"","needsreboot":"yes"},

4.)
Save, exit and reboot

5.)
Choose the "Audiophonics I-Sabre ES9028Q2M" as your DAC

6.)
reboot

7.)
Enjoy volume control :-)


Best Regards
Josef

There is no need: this overlay has been added in last version.

Hi Michelangelo, Hi Daniele,

Thank you, Michelangelo.
So do we have to choose "Volumio ESS 9028QM" as there is no selection for "Audiophonics...." and then volume control will work ?

Hi all, thank you for your support and for the time you dedicate to me.
the DAC is selectable (no 9038 but 9028) but the volume is not adjustable via the app.
Thanks.

Hi Michelangelo,

I updated to Version 2.713 but i can´t select the audiophonics I-Sabre ES9038Q2M in the Playback Options.

Instead I have to use the manual installation from their github page
https://github.com/audiophonics/Volumio2_I-sabre9028_plugin
.

After that, the systemupdate will no longer work because of user modified files.

You said the overlay has been added, but it is not there.

Please add this dac with the next update.

Thanks

Hi Team Volumio.
I kindly ask you to give me an answer regarding my repeated requests.
In December I purchased the Audiophonics DAC but it still does not work ... and I have not returned it because you told me that you would implement it at the beginning of the year.
Volume control is missing, and there are often errors.
I had to set up another DAC ... always without volume control.
Volume control is important to me, my amplifier does not have a remote control.
Can you tell me if you will fix the problems or if I have to switch players as recommended by Audiphonics?
Thank you.
Daniele
