I am trying to setup an squeezebox multiroom audio and am unable to make
the client working.
The Squeezebox server is a simple rpi3, connected to Ethernet with
internet access and mounting my NAS.
The clients are squeezelite on Rpi3, hifiberry amp+. It is wifi connected
(WPA, fix IP address, configured from CLI). I have also subscribed to the premium license, and
it appears green !
All installation is OK, and correct parameter selected in the different
tabs : amp+ in hifiberry tab, raspberry settings tab, and in the advanced setting for the audio
player. Only one audio player is selected.
According to different blogs and forum, it should be proposed as possible
audio output: Hifiberry amp+ in the list with Force HDMI and Force headphones jack (Set Audio Output on Raspberry PI). This
is not the case. And it is worth saying that no sound is going out of the
client (wiring is ok).
From a squeezebox point of view, it is OK, I can see the client from the
SQB web interface and send music.
After browsing the internet, I put this parameter in /boot/config.txt :
dtoverlay = rpi3-disable-bt, without more success.
The M2P version is 2.37.
Any help or suggestion is welcome. Thank you in advance.

That should be correct and you should have a sound output. The sound output option in the Raspberry Settings (Force HDMI, etc.) is only for those options, HDMI and audio jack, it does not interfere with the Amp+.
What power supply are you using and have you tested different passive speakers?20. October 2016 at 16:09 #23483
I am using 2 speekers from a mini stereo, and did not try others, at least one of them would work.
The PS is a 2a 12V PS, originally used for a disk drive, I also have a more powerfull one to test.
I will make some more tests this evening (not at home right now) :
- Test other speakers”
- test the other outputs (HDMI and Jack)
- Test another couple of RPI3-Hifiberry amp+
- Test with CLI command aplay
Are there further checks I can do or log or config information I can provide ?

I finally managed to have everything working.
Several tests were made without success.
I installed again everything from scratch, and changed the speakers.
I guess there was something wrong with the previous installation, and definetely those speakers are not suitable for the Amp+ (goog guess Heiner).
