Ropieee on the New Raspberry Pi 4

Super excited about new Raspberry Pi 4 :slight_smile:
Will it be supported?

Yes of course. I’ve already ordered one.


I’m hearing that USB bus might finally be full bandwidth and not shared with the lan. Is this true?

(sojer2005) #4

Yes :slight_smile: finally


Bugger I wish I knew this was coming as I just bought a NuC to replace my pi due to poor usb .

Any changes for multichannel audio? was the 192khz 2-channel limitation a raspberry issue or a linux kernel issue? :wink:

(Harry ten Berge) #7

So… for my idea: any RoPieee users already ordered one?

Not yet. The 1 GB and 2 GB versions were on stock at SOS Solutions this morning but now they are on pre-order again.

(Harry ten Berge) #9

Ok. The build with the new kernel support the Pi 4 is running, so it’s just a matter of time.

I said earlier I ordered one myself, but I was too quick: it’s also on pre-order :frowning:

In stock at ThePiHut, but I do not have good experience with their shipping delays.

(Harry ten Berge) #11

No, I’m pretty much an SOS regular as well.

Kiwi Electronics appears to have the 1GB and 2GB models on stock:

Not really on stock …

This item is ordered from our supplier. We expect to receive 250+ items on 03-07-2019.

(Harry ten Berge) #14

ah well. we need to deal with it :wink:

I’m building the new kernel as we speak. Ideally I can release an update as soon as the device arrives, so I still think we can do this pretty quick.

I just ordered at 62 available:

@RBM I hear a first voluntary tester :wink:

Do you think that my current ifi audio power supply 5V 2.5A will be enough for the new Pi 4. USB DAC connected to my Pi 3 is drawing about 0,5A (Khadas Tone Board).
On the website, they recommend 3.0A.


Tom’s Hardware tested it at just shy of 8W at max CPU load. I don’t think that included stressing the GPU at the same time, though. But RoPieee wouldn’t be maxing the device out, either. 8W means 2A at 5v, so a 2.5A power supply should be sufficient. The 3A is probably to ensure no more than 80% draw when fully maxed with a HAT and/odor USB peripherals hooked to it.

Are we talking about installing Roon Core??

If so, I am so in!
