My build started back in  2017 April and is build arround a DDDAC1794 Non Over Sampling DAC.

In addition to the Raspberry Pi, there are multiple digital inputs to choose from. The digital output is there to compare other dacs with the same source.

Little bit crowed inside:
  • 3 power supplies; dirty digital 5V, clean digital 5V and a 12V for the DAC itself.
  • Custom soft-power on circuit (small relay board+ experimental pcb)
  • Raspberry stack with: Pi3, Allo Isolator, Hifiberry Digi+ Pro (I2S output is used for the dac)
  • Double Relayboard to the back for source switching
  • DDDAC1794 with a mainboard and two dac boards
  • Use trans for outputdecoupling
  • OLED display

More details about the build can be found at dddac1794build.

It is connected to Lake People HPA RS-08 with a Sennheiser HD800s and an Audiolab 8000c with two Philips 22RH544 speakers.
I like Moode sound wise, its interface and active community, but also important for such build is that Moode is easy to customize and extend.

ps
But when you get itchy again to mod, remember Alan Parsons quote “Audiophiles don’t use their equipment to listen to music. Audiophiles use your music to listen to their equipment” so don't forget to also enjoy listening to the music ;-)

Wow! Just wow!

I've seen commercial gear that wasn't as thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted.

And thanks for the Alan Parsons quote Smile

Hello

Introducing Take-awayFi. My attempt at a moode audio player.
Specs
Rpi 3 model B
DAC - ESI U24 XL (USB)
Amp - Nad 3150
Speakers - KEF Coda II
Adafruit OLED screen (using mpd_oled)
On/ off button with LED.
Housed in a food take away container (spared no expense! Smile ).


The amp and the speakers are over 30 years old now. My Uncle gave them to me a long time ago and I didn't have the heart to get rid of them. Then i stummbled across Moode afew years ago. I could finally connect to my old system with new technologies and enjoy music again. My tiny, mono kitchen radio was doing nothing for me.
Enjoy the pics.
Cheers
Paul

Both of my moOde players live in old take-away boxes.  Practical, cheap, easy to modify, perfect.
