The 3D files for the modified Pibow case that can accommodate a Raspberry Pi and HiFiBerry DAC (the RCA version). It can be downloaded from Thingiverse.
Print the layers by yourself our let it produce by a 3D printing service. You might also remix it for any use you like.
This is a preview of the modded Pimoroni case with additional layers for the HiFiBerry DAC. We will release the STL files soon.
Our team member Andy has written a step-by-step guide how to use the HiFiBerry DAC together with Volumio for music playback. Have a look at it!
This is a modification of the Pibow case for the HiFiBerry DAC. We will release the STL files when it is finished for “print-your-own-case”. Only the layers 1-4 can be used without modification, therefore it might be the best idea to print all layers.
Here comes another nice HiFiBerry DAC installation. Jens from Germany doesn’t like switching mode power supplies for audio. Therefore he created a HiFiBerry setup with a huge linear power supply. Note that the power supply needs to provide at least 5V/1A for a stable operation of the Raspberry Pi. Depending on the input voltage this means heat. He uses a large heat sink and a small ventilator to get rid of the heat.
A spanish HiFiBerry Digi user has written a guide how to configure XBMC. If you are spanish-speaking, have a look at it.
The HiFiBerry Digi user “Pretender” has written a very good guide how to use the board to output Dolby Digital and DTS to an external home theater system. This will output the plain AC3/DTS data stream without decoding it on the Raspberry Pi. Check out his guide.
P.S. We expect that this should work out-of-the-box in Raspbmc soon.
Pieter Kleinjahn has installed a Raspberry Pi, the HiFiBerry DAC, some buttons and a LCD display in one box.
The buttons can be used to control MPD. Distributions like Volumio and RuneAudio are based on MPD, therefore this could be interesting for many readers. Peter has provided the Python script that controls everything. You can download it here: mydisplay-20140409. Note that we provide this “as is” without any support. However, the code is clean and well-documented. Therefore it should be relatively easy to adapt it to your needs.
