My ASUS battery bank is 9600mAh / 5VDC -2.4A it costs me 17USD. At this capacity I can have pure dc supply playing up to 10h :)

Sorry for the lack of information, it wiil be this setup:

- Pi 3
- HiFiBerry Digi+ - Standard Version

To play audio with a USB external HD

For the SD card, 16Gb is more than enough to install rune?

Thanks

Both options are the same but the 1st one is for European countries that you could see its rounded pins while the 2nd one is universal plug pin that you could bring Pi3 going around the world (like me) that never having any plugging issue (you can change the pin to adapt the place you stay) :)

16GB card is fine.

I have both and there's no question the IQ Pi digiAmp+ is the better product.

Look around and see how many how-tos there are to get the Hifiberry product to work with things like shairport. Look at the forums and see how many posts there are for the Hifiberry product compared to the IQ - less is more!

IQ works out of the box, has a much better resampling rate, has better on-board options for amp power, has a proper logarithmic/dB scale volume control, easily integrates with a physical volume knob and afaik, all of the five main Pi integrated music players works with no fiddling around - volumio, rune, moode, Pi music box and Kali. There may be more, but those are the only ones I have used and seem to represent the majority of implementations.

The price is more than representative of the respective quality, imo.

On a purely technical level, the hifiberryn amp uses the TAS5713 DAC the IQ uses the TAS5756, which has DSP functionality built in and hardware muting.

£50 vs US$55... nothing in it, price-wise.

Hi Zootaalws

I assume, despite the misspelling, that your are Mike/Zootalaws from the DIYAudio Moode forum?
