@orchardaudio how is the full assembled unit powered?

Via the RPi's microUSB power input?
It is powered by the 9V power supply that comes with the unit.

The Pi is powered from the DAC. The DAC has a 9V to 5V converter for this.

Can you share a photo of the power adapter's safety markings/approvals?

I'm guessing the streamer takes a 5.5.mm x 2.1mm DC power plug, so the end user can use their own power supply?

Yes it is 5.5mm by 2.1mm plug. So you can use your own 9V power supply. If you do not use headphones then you can use 9V 2A. If you use headphones 9V 2.5A needed.

This is the power supply that comes with the unit:

That website lists all of the regulatory and safety approvals for the power supply.

Thanks. Not approved for Australia but it’s easy enough to get a Mean Well.

All your measurements are with your included SMPS? Not a linear PSU or battery?

Is it compatible with DietPi OS?

Which audio device is needed to be selected in DietPi, Moode etc? What audio driver PecanPi use.

Yes compatible with DietPi, the device to select is RPI-DAC.

If you don't need the power supply I can take $20 off your order.
