For the DAC, there is not really any way to interface anything other than USB right?
I Can give you the pinout for the 40 pin connector and you can connect I2S to it instead of I2S from the Pi.

I see :) I really meant traditional s/pdif coaxical or optical, but a HDMI I2S input would be a cool feature too if there is any revision consideration in the future. I think the guys from Allo are also working on a multi-output non-Pi DAC. Not holding my breath though :)

USB is surely the most important connection anyway.

But what is the audible noise he refers to?
We tried to troubleshoot and were never able to make it go away 100%. He was also the 4th person to receive that unit and there were other issues which got resolved when he re-seated the DAC and the Pi so the unit experienced some good shock in transit to make it get loose connection.

The first three people to use that unit had no issues.

I cannot say with certainty that the unit was somehow damaged.

If the unit was not damaged I am not sure what makes his configuration unique to cause this phenomenon.

Besides that unit close to 20 people have tried this product, no body else reporting this kind of issue.

20 people in total have used that same particular unit for demo?

Or there have been multiple units in circulation for demo?
4 people in total have tried that unit about to be 5.

If the fifth person has issue then I will recall the unit and investigate.

There is a total of 4 units in circulation.

After weeks of searching, this looks interesting. Wanted to get a pi based streamer for my stereo. Numbers look good.

Too bad i missed the pre order price.

Any chance the Pecan Pi will ship with the new Raspberry Pi 4? If so, will there be a cost change?
While it was released, it is currently out of stock and cannot be purchased.

In order for me to ship with it I would need to be able to get one and test it to make sure everything works.

I will keep monitoring to see when they are available.

At this time there is not a set plan in place to offer the Streamer with a Pi 4.

I don't forsee any issues with using it.
