I'm using 1 to drive some FaitalPro 3FE25 speakers. For a very simple, easy to power small player, it's very impressive.

I use it on my LMS running picoreplayer on a RPIZero.

For it to output music, you need to use a HiFiBerry DAC driver (dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac), and add gpio=25=op,dh to your config.txt file.

I have the screen working on PCP, but would have no idea how to get it working on Volumio...
