So,

I have successfully had a very quick play with this this morning on a PI4 and a hifiberry DAC +ADC. Unfortunately I have changed so many settings that I am not sure what has worked but I’ll try to summarize.

-I installed MAX2Play (pi4 image)
-Selected hifiberry from the popup for max2play
-Selected the DAD+ADC card from the hifiberry tab in max2play
-Installed Squeezebox server 7.9 nightly.
-Realised that I needed the beta image – installed the BETA max2play update
-Added the Waveinput plugin in squeezebox plugins
-Tried adding a favorite with wavin:plughw:1 – lots of hiss.
-Added the waveinput fix on the squeezebox server tab of max2play
-Tried adding a favorite with wavin:plughw:1 – This time it wouldnt work at all. HMMM
-Disabled the Bluetooth and normal audio of the pi in the Raspberry settings page
– Changed the waveinput favorite address to wavin:sysdefault

IT WORKED. Albeit with a 10-15 sec delay but its amazing progress for me. I am delighted that this is a possibility and the sound was perfect.

I am now going to get back to homeschooling my kids and have a play at the weekend with a bit more effort and robustness. There is a blog by HiFi berry on how to get this working too so I may try that to see if the delay is better using a very basic install of LMS. I’ll then report back to the forum.

Thank you so much guys for helping me get to this point.
