Seeking some up to date advice on a Pi 4 issue please! I am looking to connect up a Pi with the optical input on my Ruark desktop speakers for my kitchen.
I did order a Digi+ hat and Pi combo from Hifiberry, but long story short - could not figure out how to fit it together involving the case included. Upshot being a fairly useless case (screw terminals now knackered) and a definitely useless Pi (one pin bent while I was trying to assemble it, tried to fix it > snapped pin). I have since ordered a new Pi and unfortunately it does have to be an optical into speakers solution that I achieve as that’s the only remaining input.
Any advice for an optical/SPDIF out that would fit easier on top of a Pi? I am aware Iqaudio do one similar but it’s out of stock.
You would think the assembly would have been easier, and I have done similar before without issue, but the lack of identified parts confused me - plus their lack of guidance - and I now have a non-functional anything.
