  5. Yes DAC can be powered separately, there is a jumper that you can remove to allow powering the Pi individually. There are a total of 16 op-amps, in 8 packages. Two opamps per package.
  6. It will work with Kodi, it uses the existing Rpi-DAC driver. The specs are achieved by using high quality component, a high quality gold plated PCB with very good dielectric, and also with proper layout techniques by keeping digital and analog sections of the board from overlapping. Below are the implementation details. Implementation Details: DAC chips: Dual flagship Burr-Brown PCM1794As in monaural mode Digital HW Volume Control and Re-clocking: Crystek CCHD-575 oscillator -- ultra low clock jitter of 82fSec SRC4193 for volume control Output stage: True balanced dual different output stages Uses OPA1612s Low Noise Panasonic Resistors Proprietary filtering topology Ultra low noise analog power supplies: TPS7A4700 (4.17uV noise) for positive op-amp power supply TPS7A3301 (16uV noise) for negative op-amp power supply TPS7A4901 (15.4uV noise) for DAC Chips Headphone driver: Dual parallel OPA1622s The sound quality is very good, but I cannot compare it to other products you will have to make that determinations yourself, as everybody has different tastes. There are two more reviews that will be coming out shortly from https://hifipig.com/ and https://theaudiophileman.com/
  7. Link to how-to video for assembly of PecanPi DAC into optional case: https://youtu.be/78NWQz_Itzw
  8. There are companies that sell isolators if you are interested in that sort of thing.
  9. The DAC is not galvanically isolated from the RaspberryPI. Can you please elaborate on your other questions, I am not sure what you are asking.
  10. Thank you very much, this is a great writeup. If any has questions don't hesitate to ask.
  11. Another great review: Review of the ApplePi Audiophile DAC from Orchard Audio
  12. It does work under DietPi starting in v6.5 see here: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/1626
  13. You can power the device separately through the Micro-USB connector, please look though the install instructions here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b6Y6fvdK50TgxC3CAdWk2_2lO_vVovy9/view Essentially there is a jumper which disconnect power from the Pi allowing you to power from Micro-USB connector. Also here are two reviews: http://theaudiobeatnik.com/applepi-dac-review-theres-art-in-this-dac-and-it-shows/ https://volumio.org/forum/orchard-audio-applepi-dac-review-t9633.html Also there is a lot of user feedback here: https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=155479.0
