    I would suggest you look at post no 6 on this thread. I think the adhesive dots improve performance by stopping the case vibrating as much. The Digione case looks quite good, but like many of these "Lego" cases, it is not very rigid.

    Delivered this afternoon. Iím now on my third album and first impressions are very positive. Iím currently running off the stock Pi power supply but it still offers a clean and open sound via my DAC.

    Yes it sounds good with a basic power supply, though I found a significant improvement with this: https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/hi-fi...a-p-11364.html

    I've just ordered a Digione Player from Allo and have a quick question.
    Am I best to use a USB stick with my music on plugged directly into the Pi or stream from a hard drive plugged into a PC?

    Either will work fine so long as you have a good connection between the RPi/Digione and your router (ideally, Ethernet). The only downside to a usb stick is the size limitation. I am currently transferring my flac files to an 8tb Western Digital network drive.

    I have used that same combination but stopped using it as I detected a reduction in sound quality, most noticeably in dynamics. I think it may be because the WD Passport takes its power from the RPi USB and it draws a much higher current than a solid state USB stick. If possible I would connect it via your router or your main PC.

    Thanks for info Geoff, can't say i was unhappy with the sound quality. Now I have two pi's set up in different rooms I have gone back to using my Zyxel nas drive, handy just having one music source.

    I think it is simply a matter of excessive power drain on the pi board. A lot of these usb drives used to require 2 usb ports to work because of their power demands. Nothing wrong with the WD drives per se: just don't try to power them from the Pi.
