In my case, I split the Signal right after the DAC, deliver it to the Yamaha-Receiver in my Living-Room, and to an 32 Years old Philips-Amp in my Hallway/Kitchen. :D After countless tries of getting the Signal through the Receiver, and from there to the Philips-Amp, which always resulted in hearable delay at the Amp, the splitting seems to be the best solution.

RuneAudio on RaspberryPI -> Behringer UCA 222 ->
Y-Splitted to:
-Yamaha RX-V473 -> Teufel Ultima 20
-Philips F4110 -> Teufel Ultima 20

Hi Skrodahl
Please excuse my stupidity, but are you powering your Pi via the Hifiberry? Looks like it. Some details of your power supply would be appreciated.
Another question, do you link to NASvia wireless, or how to you access your music? The setup looks very polished. Well done. :o

@skrodahl: impressive showoff of the RuneUI on the TV screen! :D
Nice and clean enclosure too. If you have space left for it inside the case, consider to add a IEC filtered socket: it brings some improvements especially in the case of Rpi (which doesn't have the cleanest power circuitry ever built...). I had one left lying around like this one:

It's even suggested by TNT-audio :)

I bought a 5V regulated power supply, and connected it to the HifiBerry via the 5V input on it. You need to be careful to use a regulated power supply and measure the (slightly) variable output, or your RPi could be damaged.

The enclosure is a 0905, also bought off the bay:

I don't have the tools to drill rectangular holes, so the holes in the back for ethernet and USB are circular. That allows me to connect both a network cable and USB devices though. Right now, I'm using ethernet to access my NAS.

Otherwise, my setup is as described earlier in this thread:
* Amp: Topping TP-20 mkII
* Speakers: Dynaco A25

Thanks ACX,
As the PSU itself is regulated, I wasn't sure if there was anything to gain by using an IEC filtered socket. Although this little player sounds better than ever before, it couldn't hurt. I'll have a look around to see if I can find any at a decent price.

Using the MicroSD adapter gave the space needed inside the enclosure:

(Oh, and btw, I have no affiliation with the eBay sellers mentioned.)

Did you make any progress on your review/decision on the Indeed TDA7498E ?

Currently looking for a little amp, and hopefully a similar sized case to mount the Pi etc in.

Looking at both these amps at present.

Well, I m in slow process of diy set up... so share what I have so far:
DIY Amplifier: MyRef Fremen edition with highest quality parts possible. Clean, impressive sound.
PRE: LDR based attenuator with remote controlled channel/volume selection. Absolutely transparent pass through sound due to LDR implementation.
DAC: AK4399 based dac with xmos, currently being modded with capacitor change and opamp upgrade.
Rpi itself: Linear psu is next phase with custom made box.
Speakers: Seas based speakers-monitors with flat frequency response, wave guide tweeter and distortion less er18rnx drivers in custom build enclosure- even overbuild- with rigid structure and massive weight.

Very nice setup. I'm particularly interested in the MyRef Fremen edition and the LDR based attenuator, which I didn't knew before.
Did you buy a kit to assemble the volume control?
Could you post some pics of your setup?
