    Same here. I'm using an original Allo Boss DAC HAT and I think it's superb. Certainly rate it high enough to try their other products.

    Glad you got a good result!

    It's a fantastic transport. I've tried probably 10 different DACs/transports for the Pi and the Digione was the standout. I had posted a picture of mine in another thread but no harm in posting it here also:

    ...but, this stuff doesnít make a difference, right?

    For me, femtosecond jitter levels has been a real eye opener. A far bigger upgrade than I was expecting. My DAC has no reclocking, just a simple Crystal CS8416 receiver with Itís PLL for jitter attenuation.

    Cool having a screen on the Pi. What is the PSU?

    It's a choke regulated linear supply designed by John Swenson (simple 1084 circuit) and built by me. I originally built it for my Squeezebox3, then used it on my Squeezebox Touch and now it's doing sterling duty with my Pi/DigiOne

    Looks great. Simple is best.

    John said he designed it primarily to stop any crap getting back out the power supply from whatever it was powering. John is a firm believer that crap going back on to your mains can impact other pieces of equipment you have connected to the same mains supply. There was/is a huge discussion about it on the Squeezebox forum about 10 years ago. He's the guy he designed some of the UpTone products. https://uptoneaudio.com/pages/j-swenson-tech-corner

    Am temporarily using WiFi instead of Ethernet, it might be my expectation bias, but I donít think it sounds as good. Going back to hardwired tomorrow, may try to do a bit of blind testing.

    ethernet should sound better, and also be more reliable.

    good question. No really concrete answer either, as many say wifi is better, or maybe that should read, Can Be.. Muh will depend on the noise from your router, and the power supply to the usb, and wifi potential infiltrations.
    Can only say I will always use Ethernet if possible, and in my mind its stability alone is worth it... you can always fit a quite linear psu to the router.
