RE: Further thoughts on RPi player

I've been running numerous output stages over the years. First of all. They all add complexity.

Which is one reason I tend to prefer simple, zero feedback class A discrete designs using far fewer devices than high feedback op amps. I note the pcm5122 is like AKMs having the audio output onboard the DAC chip.

There's no black or white. It's all grey. Everything ends up in a compromise at one point. You, with 45 years of DIY Audio experience,should be well aware of it.

Most certainly agree. Thanks for your comments. The projects over at DIY Audio looks intriguing.

Today, I'll be comparing the RPi to the uRendu on the main system. Should prove to be interesting. :)
