Assembling the boss player and case was frustrating and an instruction guide would have been useful.  I eventually figured it out by looking at the assembled product images on the online store  :wallbreak:

Fire up the RPI and I found that the bundled SD card had Raspbian installed, not what I expected.  So I downloaded Volumio and installed it onto another SD card, setup wifi and added a my shared music folder. 

At this point it was past my bed-time  :giggle: but I played a few tracks (at low volume) to confirm that all was working correctly.  I'm looking forward to playing with this and will also try moOde OS.

TMAVF,

glad you received your player and its up and running and sorry for the  :headbanger: s

for future ref...
we have an instruction video for case assembly on all the case pages and all the product pages that have cases

its coming ... PIshop has been delaying their order due to someone else taking care of procurement...

can you tell me what you guys need so i can put some pressure on them>?
can you each reply with what hardware you are looking to buy ?

thanks ,

Sorry guys, I just received the last BOSS player available from the pishop  :dance:

@tmavf, i had that 1 in my basket for a while haha, but i decided to wait for a black one to come into stock. Its taking a while...

Have you gotten a chance to do more testing? or still burning in?
I'd like to hear your thoughts, and if you have any other dac/s, how does it compare.

@KKAN, I have less than an hour's usage on it.  I have an Asus Xonar U3 that I can compare it to, although I doubt it would be a fair comparison.

Are you still undecided about buying it?
