Does mpd works ok?
Where did you take nodejs? Did you rebuilt the node modules?

Have you any new ideas if this image can be used with NanoPi Neo?

I doubt it, NanoPI Neo has an Allwinner H3 cpu therefore would need another kernel.

And it's probably the smallest player (board size 40mmx40mm) powered by Volumio :D

Will you be able to share your image? This is such a great news!

Are you planned use with i2s dac? By default used i2s in slave mode that needed extern clocks board. If you want use i2s in master mode just rename sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-master.dtb to sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2.dtb on boot partition.

Thank you! No, I do not have i2s dac yet but planning to use a USB Dac. Will it work?

Oh, I have several very high end Dacs that I'll try tomorrow. I have WA8, some other tube desktop dac, portable dacs like iDSD Micro Black, Mojo, soon Hugo 2...I did not have time for testing in the past few weeks. I'll try to play it tomorrow.

not impressed sofar, nikkov's image boots, but that is all.
No sound from the nanopi hat, none either when I switch the dtb as suggested.
I do not see any support site either covering this sort of problem either.
Do a have a HAT DOA or something else?

Looking at the last 2 weeks of nanopi a64 struggles it seems friendlyarm could be quite a challenge for us.
Not convinced yet if it is worth the effort, but not giving up yet though...

Sorry, I checked sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2-master.dtb and this file is wrong.
Try replace to file from attached archive:
sun50i-h5-nanopi-neo2.zip

Later I'll rebuild image.
