I prefer relatively simple amps. This one is a single ended design producing only a few watts so efficient speakers are a must. The power tubes are el84s driven by a 6n1p, though I am considering switching to a 6dj8. LED bias for the 6n1p is the only 'interesting' feature, otherwise it is a design that could have been done 50 years ago. I'll post pics and a schematic when I'm done. The Pi and dac are powered with a meanwell supply through the gpio pins, I am using a slightly modified Hifiberry pro + dac, and I have installed a shutdown button and script to facilitate a clean turn off. All in all, this is a very nice little streamer.

PS Running 5.4 beta 2, had one mysterious halt in playback last night. The system became unresponsive, I could still see the ip address on the network, but no control, ssh etc. Worked fine again on reboot.
