Maybe try this one: http://www.iqaudio.com (blatant advert for my DAC - :-))

Dammit! Wish I'd known about this the other day before I bought an ES9023-based pcb. Looks very impressive though.


Hi ! I'm French, sorry for my bad English...
I discovered this DAC. So is it compatible with Volumio ? Is it plug and play or is there something to do ?

Thanks in advance,
Lolincolc.

It's not clear which DAC you mean, the Wolfson or the IQAudio one.

The Wolfson is not currently supported by Volumio (as far as I know).

Well, the website itself http://iqaudio.com/ says it supports Volumio: "Use raw Linux, Volumio, Raspbmc, RuneAudio, SqueezePlug, PiCorePlayer, MDP or similar ".

And if you look under the 'System' menu for Volumio, under the options for 'Activate I2S driver' it lists one of the I2S drivers as 'Iqaudio'.

So I'd say that looks hopeful :-)

Hy guys,
I've tried to customize my Volumio setup and get my new Wolfson up and running.
I've follow this tutorial:
https://blog.georgmill.de/2014/04/29/compile-wolfson-audio-card-driver-for-kernel-3-12-y-a-new-try/

I'm actually testing it, but it seems to work well.
For those who wanna try it, I've packaged a Volumio with wolfson image with this setup:

https://mega.co.nz/#!QZAyGYBb!ez8HoC-LS4k99ILOTkq77zZahYFX6dGGaOTPCXZNv1Q
checksum: 81f8da176433a45e0fdabc41cea3100f

inside /home/volumio/wolfson_drivers I've downloaded the original wolfson_driver script for alsa managment;
actually it is configured to playback from line-out.
Bye!!

sorry for the duplication, but we have 2 different threads regarding problems with wolfson card:
here you have a new image with Volumio 1.3 + wolfson audio drivers:

Hi all my first post here so be gentle with me ;-) I hope I have good news in that I have updated the Volumio kernel with the wolfson drivers and have it working with Volumio, It sounds great!

I haven't seen an official release yet so if anyone wants the .img file let me know and I'll share it somewhere.

The process is quite lengthy approx 10 hours to compile the new Kernel

Hi SIB,
would you post a link to download your .img ?
