Rasp pi 3 B+ ifi power or Poe?

(Tom den Heijer) #1

I am planning tot buy a pi 3 B+ with dietpi and meridianen Explorer 2 for a roonbridge. I see that some are using an ifi power for better audio but I am wondering if I should wait for the Poe hat which is a lot cheaper. Any thoughts on disturbance of Poe on audio quality?

Edit: I see that the allo USB bridge may be a better option? But more expensive and no POE. I now have a large Windows 10 computer with microatx board connected to meridian. Are there any improvements to expected in sound quality or is it just more convenient and less power greedy to have an allo usbridge or rpi?

The Best End Point?
