Unfortunately my favorite does not fit your requirements. It is the HiFiBerry DAC+ – Pro (about $50 US). This one attaches directly to the Pi.
My 2nd favorite is a USB DAC, the Schiit Modi 3 DAC (about $120 US, with shipping) https://www.schiit.com/products/modi-1. I've owned 3 of Shiit's DACs and they are fine for the money involved. If you do need to reuse this unit for another app later on, it has digital inputs available.
Even though I like the HifiBerry much better, I hesitate to endorse it. I have mine on a Pi2B with an ethernet connection and there is no Wifi on the Pi2B. Some have noted that there were some complaints about interference with WiFi on the Hifiberry.

The 'Generic PCM510x' or 'RPi DAC' soundcard setting will probably work fine with the PiZeroAudio DAC.smccloud wrote:I was also looking at Audio DAC HAT Sound Card (AUDIO+) for Raspberry Pi Zero/PI3/PI3B/PI3B+/PI2/Better quality than USB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MDW602K/re ... 7Cb9CCC3JJ due to it's price but I'm not sure it's supported.

But if you want to go low-cost, this pcm5102 based DAC will probably outperform the PiZeroAudio DAC (UDA1334ATS dac chip): https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCM5102-DAC-De ... SwEvZcAH2p
You will need some connector leads like this to connect it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dupont-Cable-f ... KegIy6SVjw (female-female type, 10cm is probably long enough).
Otherwise the ‘HiFiBerry DAC+ 3.5mm’ is a good choice since it fits into a standard Pi case, you only need to drill a hole for the 3.5mm socket.

Yes this works fine as well, but more difficult to get it into a case. I use one of these for a Pi Zero player, see the photos:smccloud wrote:https://www.ebay.com/itm/ASSEMBLED-PCM5 ... SwHodc2Upq Would be ok then too right? I would prefer RCA jacks to a 3.5mm mini-jack.

These are the connections (pin's 12, 35 and 40):andre_chang wrote:...He doesn't work. I'm sure the hardware wiring + power supply is correct!
What should the driver of Rune be set to?
Or did I miss something?...
