So I've finally got my power supply (9V 3A) for the DAC Pi3 setup.

1. I connected the the power button http://tinyurl.com/grtck56 to the DAC Sabe V3
2. I pressed the button and the Pi3 boots up just fine, everything is working!
3. However, the LED on the power button keeps blinking blue. Something wrong?

I've looked through 12 pages of this topic and through the French forums linked on here. I couldn't find the solution.

You guys keep talking about Runeaudio and installing power managment scripts for that. But for my build I am not using that. I'm using OpenElec kodi.

How do I fix the blue blinking light on the power button?

Thanks!

Edit: So I did some digging around and found out that I need to run a python script which turns of the blinking LED on autostart.sh for Kodi. However, my script doesn't seem to do anything upon booting up my raspberry pi 3...

Edit2: I did it! I don't think its exactly the correct way.

If you are going to use Kodi for your setup, follow these steps:
1. Install the RPi GPIO addon on Kodi http://www.barryhubbard.com/raspberry-pi/howto-raspberry-pi-openelec-power-wake-shutdown-button-using-gpio/ (step 2 from this link)
2. Connect to your Raspberry through ssh (username: root // password: openelec)
3. Create an autostart.sh file in /storage/.config/
4. Create a file called something like "stopBlinkingLight" or "afterBoot"
5. Paste this code in
Code: Select all
  GNU nano 2.5.3          File: stopBlinkingLight.py

#!/usr/bin/python
import sys
sys.path.append('/storage/.kodi/addons/python.RPi.GPIO/lib')

import subprocess
import RPi.GPIO as gpio
import time

print "Audiophonics Shutdown script starting..."
print "Asserting pins : "
print "ShutDown : GPIO17=in, Low"
print "BootOK   : GPIO22=out, High"

gpio.setmode(gpio.BCM)

gpio.setup(17, gpio.OUT)
gpio.output(17, 0)

gpio.setup(22, gpio.OUT)
gpio.output(22, 1)

time.sleep(1) #important to have this or else script won't work >.<

gpio.cleanup()



6. Add execute permission to the files (autostart.ph and the one you just created)

I connected the the power button http://tinyurl.com/grtck56 to the Sabre V3. Everything boots up when I press the button.

However, the blue LED on the power button keeps flashing blue. Is that an issue? How do I stop it from blinking?

Nice work here ;) And as you discovered you have to have python scripts to make power management working.

I am an great fan and supporter of Kodi and it distros on RPi, mainly XBian.
I did want to use my RaspDAC kit with it at the beginning. Than I started to play with other distros like Volumio, RuneAudio, MoodeAudio, etc...
I suggest you try some of these as you be surprise how much different this setup can sound if you use different software.
Kodi builds are falling behind the others if we talking sound quality...just give it a try.
Make a SD card backup of your existing setup before you start, but I guarantee you will not come back. I bought an different RPi to use it with Kodi and I keeping this only for music

Hi there,
I am planning to purchase RaspDAC Kit DIY Network player Raspberry Pi 3.0 & DAC Sabre V3 from http://www.audiophonics.fr, and the recommended Linear Regulated Power Supply EMI RFI Filter 6V 3.5A 25VA:
http://www.audiophonics.fr/en/diy-dac/a ... 11136.html
http://www.audiophonics.fr/en/hi-fi-pow ... 11363.html
I hope that everything will work out well, I guess 6V 3.5 A will be enough to power an USB HDD, correct?
And please tell me, there is a special power cable needed, the 55 Euro cable they suggest it's kind of overkill : http://www.audiophonics.fr/en/power-sup ... 10003.html
Do you have an alternative?

Thank you, I can't wait to share with you my experiences!

Hello, I have a question about this dac which I just bought.

I bent GPIO pins 2 and 4 from the Raspberry Pi and mounted the Dac on my Pi. Then I fed the Pi and the Dac separately with TWO 5V powersupplies. And it works, I am listening to music. My question is: Is this safe? This combination was designed to work with ONE 6V powersupply ? Is my setup with TWO 5V powersupplies damaging the dac?

I hope someone can answer my question!

Hi,
What is the benefit of having two separate power supplies ?
What kind of power supply are you using for the DAC board ?

Thanks for your reaction.

The reason is that I do not have a 6V powersupply but that I do have a linear 5V powersupply. With this linear 5V PSU I feed the Dac. I feed the raspberry Pi with a good switching powersupply.

I purchased a AUDIOPHONICS RaspDAC I-Sabre V3 - Kit DIY Streamer Raspberry Pi 2 / 3 & DAC after online recommendations

https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/diy-dac/ ... 10384.html

(I am playing it through B&W 804s ->Perreaux 2150 power amp and a yamaha pure direct preamp.)
I got there with both the power switch and the display in the end thanks to Frank's and Dhrone's work and postings - really big thanks guys.

https://github.com/dhrone/Raspdac-Display

After the trauma of getting it assembled and software configured correctly I was expecting great things for the sound..... but honestly there is very little improvement over my existing raspberry pi and Chinese PiFi DAC+ at $24 + $39 for the Raspberry Pi

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/produc ... d4ce9hvQHq

Given the total absence of instructions for the audiophonics and the high price I have been dissappointed :-( Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations.

For the benefit of other audiophonics DIY assemblers I had most trouble with the power switch - as the switch came with a wire soldered onto the NC terminal of the switch but it should have been on the C terminal. Only when I realised this after a day of reading the french audiophonics forums via google translate did I crack the solution. I am sure most would have given up having wasted 200 Euros.

If you are considering an audiophonics Sbare V3 DAC ES9023 TCXO - then you do get a nice case and the display and the switch with some effort - but do not expect huge sound quality improvements over the cheapy DAC above. Maybe that one is a particularly good one - it certainly looks like damn good value next to the Audiophonics.

Yes i only changed a few lines.
