I have some bel canto long in the tooth equipment and the Harbeth Compact 7ES3, ready to go for a second system. I just have to get off my chair.
I plan on hooking up an unmodified Sonos connect to the Bel Canto DAC, and call it a day, however I might have to get it modified, I don't think I would be able to deal with a non-modded connect after hearing the Wyred 4 sound connect.
beat the stock SONOS connect in every respect.
And cheaper as well.
yes! I forgot about the RPi after I was done with it, I'll just hook that up instead.
Not bad at all...
Could maybe be better with the right drugs.
Might have to make a few phone calls.
Oh, and the Pi is now 'rockin' a new iFi iPower switching wall wart pictured above.
Thinking it might be better than the 24,000 mAh battery I was using before.
that's the one I have. I was all done with the RPi experiment a few months ago, it does sound fantastic. If I was to compare to Sonos modded, probably the same or a tad bit better, that is the RPi compared to the Sonos modded, the hacked up RPi sounds a tad bit better. At least using Rune Audio.
Hacked up how?
At this point, my MacBook Air USB + Jitterbug to my AudioGD DAC still seems to be 'slightly' better than the RaspberryPi HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro S/PDIF to the same DAC and that's with any and all PS upgrades I have attempted so far.
Any future 'hacks' are appreciated.
Just Digi+ pro, IFI power supply, and I say Rune Audio.
That's Rune Audio 0.4 beta, I've blabbered about it before.
