Driver for Audiophonics ESS9038Q2M

Hello. I am new to this forum and I use Runeaudio for several months now. I tasted it and I can not live without it! I have a first Raspberry pi 3B+ with Hifiberry-dac+, but I recently discovered audiophonics products that provide superior audio quality. I just bought a small system (Raspdac Mini) sold by audiophonics based on an audio card with ESS-9038Q2M component. This system is sold with Volumio or Moode, which did not suit me. So I installed Runeaudio on this product (version 0.5 beta) and I developed a Python software to manage the OLED screen that came with this product. Everything works fine but I have a question: the driver proposed by Runeaudio for the ESS-9038Q2M is actually the "rpi-dac" driver which does not offer (among others) the ability to control the volume by hardware. However, a driver for the 9038Q2M-based audiophonics card has recently been integrated into the Raspberry Linux kernel (V 4.19.34). I was wondering if it was possible to substitute this driver for the rpi-dac. And if it is possible, how should it proceed?
Thanks again to the team that continues to develop Runeaudio for our pleasure. Bravo!

It is not easy to install it on RuneAudio 0.5b, but it has been done, see this thread: driver-for-audiophonics-ess9038q2m-t6809.html
You could contact Nocolo for some help.

Is there any limit we must consider while performing?
