    Wouldn't work for me as a UPnP stream with Volumio - but http live streaming works fine.

    There's a spotify plugin for Volumio, but it requires a premium account.

    Thanks for this incredible resource guys! I took the easy way out and bought a fully assembled Pi3 / Kali / Piano 2.1 bundle. Or so I thought! Seems the assembly is not the tricky part, so I will be scouring this thread to learn how to set up and use the little streamer.

    EDIT: turns out to be super easy even for an IT dunce like me. 45 minutes from startup with Volumio to flashing SD and running piCorePlayer. Very satisfying experience!

    Hey! The Allo Boss DAC is on Massdrop! $10 cheaper then the usual price.

    piCore 4 realtime is slowly becoming amazing...

    and now this hardware -- I don't think there's a single chip, flip-flop, clock fanout, crystal without it's own regulator and parallel'd bypasscap in sight, and the crystals, final flip-flops (i2s latches) getting special attention film (3 diff value) caps on the power pin.

    Also, I like that they don't use a transformer (that overused "galvanized" decoupled term, it ain't zinc!) on the output... it does look weird and distorted on the oscilloscope vs straight --> at least on the hifiberry I tested.

    WOW

    I saw that the other day on the Allo site! At $250 it better be the ultimate RPi digital solution. Maybe send it to @Hands to compare to the DigiOne he reviewed.

    Attn @gixxerwimp and anybody who's had trouble with Hi-Fi Cast as an Android control point for LMS: the latest Hi-Fi Cast update purports to have "fixed [an] issue when playing albums from Logitech Media Server."

    I don't use LMS myself so can't vouch for it.
