Any help on how to make this work on the raspberry?

I'm trying to use the hifi-berry dac+ overlay on osmc. The card turns up fine, but there's no sound. Also dmesg gives me this line:

pcm512x 1-004d: No SCLK, using BCLK: -2

Any help?
Cheers

Hmmm you're not on the right place ....

but have you tried to use a "generic driver" (RPI DAC / Hifiberry DAC / ES9023 etc ...) this board is a slave.

Do you know for sure that this DAC works with Volumio? Was having nothing but problem with their ES9018k2m DAC. No open source driver.

Hi,
I've just sent an email to Audiophonics site about using this DAC (http://www.audiophonics.fr/fr/dac-diy/a ... 12105.html) with VolumIO, and the answer is yes it's possible as this DAC product has been designed to run without any driver thanks to it's embedded hardware.

On the product page at Audiophonics, you also have one customer feedback saying:
"Perfection - Amazing soulfull clear and strong sound
Took some time before rebuilding an RPI dac macine based on volumio. According to Audiophonics advices (David, many thanks) i took this DAC with a Kali and an IFI power supply. My Hartley S150 never sounded so soulfull with numeric music. Best DAC ever tested. Recommended with high end HIFI."

David is the guy who answered me (full name is David AUBERT) and the less I can say is he answered me very, very quickly :)

So I'm going to buy a set of pieces at Audiophonics: RPI 3 B, this famous Sabre DAC, and the ALLO KALI Reclocker (http://www.audiophonics.fr/fr/raspberry ... 11433.html).

NanoSound DAC is a TI PCM5122 based DAC which integrates many convenience features, made by NanoMesher - http://nanomesher.com

Image

It features:
  • Switchable Power Option (Independently power DAC & Pi or Shared Power)
  • Raspberry Pi Power switch
  • Turn on and Gracefully shut down Raspberry Pi System
  • 6 GPIO buttons for Media Control
  • Infrared Receiver and Remote Control
  • 1.3" OLED display with multi-language support.

We have also built a headphone & speaker amp for it, just plug the Amp^2 under the NanoSound and with a single 5V Power supply you will add the capability to drive 2 loudspeakers and a demanding headphone set

An even greater implementation for the sabre 9023p than the mamboberry LS+
The mamboberry HD+ DAC !

Huge local filter capacitors from NICHICON and specific from it’s audio hi-end series “Muse”
Three new Ultra low noise 4.5 μv power supplies from Texas Instruments
Two choices for Ultra Low jitter Femto Clock :
– Crystek(Hi-End clock)
– IDT(Low noise clock)
WIMA plastic film capacitors at audio low pass filter
ELNA audiophile bypass capacitors
SUSUMU SMD resistors at i2s line
more info : https://www.collybia.com/product/mambob ... 2khz24bit/

I used the IQaudIO case from modmypi.com
(https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ca ... case-clear)
very beautiful - the only thing is to make the DAC power connector hole bigger...

Since this one is not listed and I got one recently so I will post.

It is like an Allo BOSS clone so it uses the Allo BOSS device tree. Master clocked PCM5122 with two oscillators. Sounds better than the PIFI DAC+ and not much more expensive (£19). I do recommend powering it separately and not use the Raspberry 5V which is extremely noisy. You can really hear the differences. I use a TPS7A4700 Low Noise LDO Regulator (linear power supply is expensive :D) to supply the DAC and it works really well since it is LDO (307 mV at 1 A) I can use that on a USB power supply and still get good enough voltage.
