Hello,

I have an Audiophonics I-Sabre DAC in one of my RPi setups (it’s a RaspDAC streamer box). Please follow the instructions below, might also work for you:

1. Install Max2Play HiFiBerry Image

2. On the HifiBerry Tab:

Select:
Hifi Berry DAC (PI A/B)

3. On the Audioplayer Tab:

Squeezelite –> Edit advanced options

Soundcard:
sysdefault - snd_rpi_hifiberry_dac, - Default Audio Device, CARD=sndrpihifiberry

ALSA Parameter:
80:4::

Command Line Options:
-o hw:0 -V Digital

This command line option noticeably improved the sound quality, at least to my ears. Please see the following Wiki post for more details:

@ Max2Play team – questions about M2P support of I-Sabre DACs are becoming more frequent. Is there any chance you could add proper support for the following DAC in the next release, i.e. so it can just be chosen in the dropdown list? There may also be additional parameters which might further improve sound quality. Please see
