What

I've acquired a beautiful antique Aristona SA5026A. Plan is to make a nice music player out of it using a Raspberry Pi B+ and a Suptronics X400 AMP/DAC HAT.

Software

WiP

Rune Audio

Tried v0.3-beta (29/10/2014), could not get it stable. It consistently threw kernel panics when rebooting, and the WebUI kept crashing.

Volumio

Tried volumio-2.246-2017-07-31-pi.img. After first boot you should wait while a lot of stuff is happening, like partition resizing. If you reboot it to soon you'll end up with a non working system. Got DAC working from within the WebUI:

  • Go to Menu
  • Choose Playback Opions
  • Enable I2S DAC
  • Choose IQaudIO Pi-DigiAMP+
  • Save and reboot

OSMC

Got DAC working, needed two lines in /boot/config.txt:

dtparam=i2s=on
dtoverlay=iqaudio-dacplus

After a reboot I could select this as default audio output in OSMC \o.

Todo

  • Measure power consumption
  • If needed, find a way to switch AMP on/off from the Pi
  • Check if there is space in the Aristona and decide on how and where to mount the Pi and HAT.
  • Decide on speakers.
