Hello , I am really confused if this will work or not , currently I have RPI4 2GB and looking to make it network audio streamer using ALLO HAT connected to SMSL DAC/AMP to my PC .
Now will I be able to hear my pc audio via the dac ? since its only have 1 input , does this conflict with my rpi streamer ? How can I use both audio inputs (MY PC , RPI) the same time ?

You cannot listen to PC audio and music steamed to the rpi simultaneously.

You can plug the PC in via USB and the rpi via a hat and Toslink or Coax, then switch inputs on the DAC to switch between sources.
