    It seems that my message disappeared, I can’t see it on the forum. If this is a duplicate message, please delete it.

    I had a RPiB and HiFiBerry DAC+ working great under M2P. As usual (!) I didn’t listen to my basics (do not change if it is working…) and decided to upgrade…

    I have bought a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and a Audiophonics i-sabre V4 (not a typo, it is the V4 and not the V3) and I can’t get any sound out of it 🙁 Audiophonics say that V4 is the same as the V3 with minor position changes for the contacts but it can’t be only that (or my board is half dead).

    I tried my “old” HiFiBerry DAC+ on the new RPi3B+ and it is working under M2P and Volumio.
    I tried the i-sabre V4 on the RPiB+ under M2P with the Audiophonics V3 plugin and no sound. With HiFiBerry DAC driver no sound either. I tried different settings in the audio player page to no go. It is not possible to use the M2P as a DLNA renderer either. foobar2000 sees the player, starts “playing” and 1 sec later, the cursor stops. No sound ever came out of the speakers.

    The power button and LED is working.

    I did the tests under Volumio too with the same results : no sound. It thinks that it is playing but as usual, no music from the loudspeakers (yes, I tested the cable and my HiFi system and they are working 😉 ). Again, I played around and tried all the options (those indicated for V3) to no go.

    Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Rob,

    What power supply are you using?

    1. Juni 2018 at 9:48 #36004


    The one they propose with their DIY kit, 6v 3A. I haven’y tested the power supply yet and will have a look at it this WE. Thanks for the idea, I had not thought of the power supply as a possible cause…

    Seems that the i-sabre V4 I had was the culprit. It went back to Audiosonics and they said that they found the fault in the card. They’ll send a new one and I hope it will work as it should.

    Follow-up :

    I received the new i-sabre v4 and everyhting is working great. The problem was a faulty card.
