Found this kit on Amazon. Adding a Rpi 4 to it made an affordable streamer I can use for Spotify Connect, Airplay and my local FLAC files on a USB hard drive. To get Volumio working I set the I2S DAC option to ST400 Dac (PCM5122) - Amp. By default they don't tell you what setting to use in Volumio. I like that the RCA output jacks are on the back with all the other connections.

Nifty one device solution. Consider loaning it to Amir for measurements.

Mines kind of like that but I used a HiFiBerry Digi Pro and Dietpi with Airplay 2 and GMediarender.

I put PiCore Player on mine, much better.
Try a iFI Elite for power. Or an Allo Shanti.
