Raspberry Pi 3B+ with Allo Boss Dac Setup

Post by MDF »

Hi, I have ordered a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with an Allo Boss 1.2 Dac which I want to set up to use with bubbleupnp to stream hires Qobuz to my analogue headphone amp. My question is do I need to add a setting in MPD for it to recognise the DAC hat or will it recognise it with a default install.

I am new to all this and on a steep learning curve so if this is a daft question I apologise but any advice setting up would be very much appreciated.

Ah, after more research I think this is partly done by using an overlay entry in config.txt on the Pi operating system. Would I still need to configure an output with MPD in some way though?

MPD can use any sound chip if it has an ALSA driver. Once you have your Pi with DAC running, do "aplay -l" to see if that DAC is listed.
