Actually I use my RPi with USB out.
My Dac has a self powered Amenero board inside. Meaning its essentially the same as having an outboard USB converter with I2S output....which is what the Amenero feeds the Dac as output.
The pic you posted of your RPi in DAC box on the 8th(sorry I'm traveling and embedding link is trickier with pad)
What I see is an RCA cable coming out of what looks like my HiFiBerry Digi+!
Edit: especially with spell corrupt :)
I have 4 RPis..... Two with Digi+ pro and to without
What are your observations between the two approaches? Do you use both because neither offers an sonic advantage?
Sorry for all the questions, but presumably this is the kind of information decided noobies to the Pi thing like me seek.
Initially I purchased the RPi to use with my Master 7 Dac. Again because it has its own self powered USB to I2S card my intentions were to only use USB out.
I purchased a Digi+ to see what all the hype was about. It was okay [just okay]. Ended up using it for my Pie-in-the-Box project with the RPi inside of the Dac….spdif out.
Then they came out with the Digi+ Pro with the two clocks. Again I just wanted to see, so I purchased one…it was much better, plus I could use it to power the RPi directly.
So I purchased a couple more RPi's, one for my tube Dacs and one for my Master 7. I like the sound of the Digi+ Pro vs. USB in my Havana tubed Dac so I ended up with
2x Digi+ Pro and a RPi for USB out to one Dac.
Sound wise I like feeding my Master 7 Asynch via USB, and letting the Amanero convert it to I2S.
I like feeding my Havana spdif over USB and I was forced to use spdif for my project.
