Rasberry PI 4 e DAC

Tue Sep 10, 2019 3:24 pm

Hello, I'm new to the forum and I greet everyone. I wanted to know if it is possible to connect the Raspberry PI4 to an external dac, to listen to music, using the USB port. Thank you

Yes - in the same way as for previous RPi devices.

DAC is a question about supported hardware. I used several external DACs (version raspberry 3 & 4), the DACs worked very well, but in Linux there are some kernel problems that make connecting the DACs difficult. In particular, the volume control does not always work correctly. Although everything is fixable. Another problem with the DAC via usb is the increased current consumption. Forgive me for my poor English.
