Hello, I like to have a Rpi4 with Ropiee and headphones amp Hat placed in my work area so I could stream from Roon to my headphones while I work. Working volume control would be necessary also.
So, is there such a Hat? ie. a single Rpi4/DAC/HeadPhones amp Hat package that I could use with Wifi ethernet. A good case is important also.
You could use a Dragonfly in the USB Port
There are a few out there that offer headphones into a connected HaT. How good they are I can’t say. Orchard Audio offer an all in one with the Pecan Pie Streamer. Or you can add a usb headphone DAC/amp such as the AudioQuest dragonfly series or many others. Depends what you want out of it.
I am about to put up my Ifi Nano iDSD BL DAC for sale which works well with a Pi if your interested. Has its own volume control which works well for desktop use.
The IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ has a headphone out.
@Kristian_Salo I recently acquired an @Orchard_Audio PecanPi streamer and I have nothing but praise for it as an all-in-one Roon endpoint headphone amp. Super simple; works great, sounds great. You have the choice of either using the volume knob on the front or using Roon DSP for volume control.
I have a couple of these. This is mine with a Dragonfly Cobalt and battery powered.
You don’t have to use a battery, of course. Nor do you need the screen. A FLIRC case works great.
@Red_R thanks for the mention.
I also currently have a streamer with a touch screen available for preorder. Uses the same DAC and headphone amp.
@Orchard_Audio Hello, I tried to configure the PeacanPi Streamer at your European distributor, but their site only allows to choose UK as the destination country and I live in Finland. Do you have a reseller in Europe that ships to the rest of the Europe?
They ship to all of Europe. You have to contact them.
Morning (or whaterver time it is at your end)
I am highly interested in what kind of battery you use. It kind of looks like a regular powerbank. I’ve tried this as well and works great with the RPI, however my attached Chord Mojo doesn’t like it that much.
The Cobalt looks like a brilliant alternative. Cheers
Maybe get the iFi Hip DAC… inexpensive, MQA and a great portable headphone amp. Plugs into USB.
It’s an Anker 2nd Gen Astro E7
Product Number: A1210
Capacity: 25600mAh / 94.72Wh
Input: 5V=2A Output: 4A(Max)
It’s one I had laying around and got from Amazon some time ago. It last for several days if I use it a lot and months if I use it very little.
