Adding an I2S DAC for audiophile quality sound.
This guide no longer works with the newer Xbian and therefore has been removed.

RE: Adding an I2S DAC for audiophile quality sound.
and BTW, what about Hifiberry Digi? do you have any experience with that? That would be something which may interest me personally

RE: Adding an I2S DAC for audiophile quality sound.
This is the 'how to' that will be linked from the wiki which I hope to do later this week.

I am trying to make it as noob friendly as I can without writing a whole book! - No I don't have a 'digiberry' but would be happy to test it out if they send me one Wink Big Grin

Thanks for the feedback!

That looks like the board sold in Europe by Audiophonics. It should do the job.

If it were me I would try this one as it uses the same Wolfson chip, it's bi-directional and it's cheaper! Smile .... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WM8804-S-PDIF-TOSLINK-to-IIS-Converter-I2S-Codec-Project-integration-DIY-/141039832924?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Test_M...20d6a10f5c

Also this one won't block access to the gpio pins on the main P1 connector of the pi.

I don't know how you would get this working with another DAC for pure music to the pi though. Something to look into I guess.

Yup - I guess it all depends on if you want a DIY or 'plug-n-play' solution.

That's the fun, there is something for everyone, a range of options, prices, specs and it's up to you what you want to do!

@Skywatch

man, you finally made my day. not because of that howto (which is indeed perfect), but because you FINALY realised you are not depending on Asking questions and Waiting for answers, but you can do it faster yourself!

very good! Wink

btw:

can RPI be forced for SDTV output but still sending audio to hdmi ?
