Cheap, Roon enabled DAC

$32 ODROID-C1+ or $40 ODROID-C2 (once Roon release an ARMv8 build of Roon Bridge), add a $39 HiFi Shield Plus and you have a Burr-Brown DAC that supports up to 384kHz/32bit including 192kHz/24bit resolution via Toslink. Not too shabby for creating portable Roon endpoints.

Great. And for the $39 question: hoe does it sound? :slight_smile:

Shame no coaxial though - I’ll have to stick to my Pi.

Will know soon - one on the way. They’ve some measurements and a few pics on the main page. Will be interesting to listen to on my ATC’s.

Re coax, they’ve a solution for that: USB-SPDIF

There’s an enclosure to house the lot too.

I kind of like the science project look!!

[/quote]USPS lost my original so another is on the way…I’m told now includes SPDIF.

You keep on tempting me towards an Odroid, don’t you? :wink:

Me? Never … :innocent:

Finally got it (USPS lost the first one following which I cancelled the order) , tonight I’ll hook it up as a Roon enabled DAC and have a listen on my ATCs. It’s ultimately destined to Roonify my kitchen radio.

Didn’t get home till close to midnight so haven’t listened yet


Sounds great, in fact better than it has any right to.
