Does anyone use a Raspberry Pi for streaming 2020-10-01 16:21:58 I'm want to set up a Raspberry pi as a streaming device, but I am having a hard time discerning the snake oil from the truth.Almost every source I have read claims the 3.5mm jack is very noisy and should not be used. I haven't tested this myself, but that is easy enough to do. But I have a USB DAC sitting in a box, so that's an easy fix if it turns out to be a problem.Other sources claim that a USB DAC won't work either, because the USB port on the Pi is noisy also. Again, this I can test, since I have a USB DAC.But here is where things get annoying.I'd like to get an all-in-one case solution, so I was thinking of getting a DAC HAT to put on the Pi. I'm trying to do some homework into which DAC HATs are available, and a lot of people are claiming that the "noisy power" will be present in a DAC HAT also, and you need to get a DAC with galvanic isolation that has its own power source.And then I found there are various HATs that provide TOSLink out. I thought that might be an interesting option, because I could then plug it into an A/V receiver. But there is a pretty vocal camp that says the TOSLink signal will also be polluted from the Pi's "dirty" power also, and you need to get a TOSLink HAT with galvanic isolation and its own power source.Obviously, I could test these HATs, by buying them. But that's time and money. Has anyone used a DAC or SPDIF HAT on a Raspberry Pi and had issues with noise?
