Hi
I am very new here so please forgive silly questions. I read the whole forum post and found it very informative. The reason I ended up here is because I want to put the following together and because I have no experience with this kind of equipment, I thought to seek some advise first.

I have a RPI 3 that has Kodi installed. I would like to fit it with a Allo Piano 2.1 Hi-Fi DAC (Subwoofer Out), Allo Volt AMP (Audio Amplifier) and Allo Volt+ AMP (Stand Alone Audio Amplifier) for the sub woofers.

Is this a feasible solution and will it work with Kodi?

Wietsche popped in earlier this week with a (small) box of toys. A couple of take aways:

- DigiOne is a very good transport with RCA SPDIF clearly preferred over USB out. Especially impressive as a wireless streamer transport.

- Allo BOSS is a brilliant little DAC / streamer. As a streamer it is virtually indistinguishable from the SB Touch. As a DAC it competes very very well with my Wadia 121. The Wadia is the more accomplished and coherent performer but not by much.

I would recommend both devices in their intended applications  to anyone with a working knowledge (or appetite to acquire such knowledge) of computers and networks.

Those alu cases look very very professional! Would look good as a part of any system.
