You can get a USB soundcard that supports inputs (for example focusrite ones)

Thanks @michelangelo . I checked them, I don't need that much functionality. I just need to use another source in volumio from where I can play.

Can any USB dac with input will work?. Would really be helpful if you can give some examples n I still check them out

It is designed to fit it between the RPi and a HAT (in your case the DigiOne board)

The user manual is available here:

The designer/manufacturer is extremely helpful. You can message him on DIYAudio, or email him iancanada.mail at gmail.com

This new feature will be released end of this month


Hi there I tried the myvolumio superstar subscription which gives you a 15 day free trail. Unfortunately Volumio still didn't give me the option to select the Toslink input as an audio source. So I am not sure this option works for the DACBerry ONE+ which is a shame. The reason why I bought this HAT was so that I could use the raspberry Pi / Volumio for my local files and internet radio and hookup my Chromecast audio to the Toslink input so that my girlfriend can talk to the google home to play Spotify music.
