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.

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.

Here is my setup:

Rpi 3b
Allo Piano 2.1 DAC
Allo Kali i2s reclocker
Allo Volt amp
Klipsch R51M speakers
Dayton Audio subwoofer

The decorative box has a couple of holes in the back and all the power blocks and cabling are stored in there.

My partner and I are at odds on the subject of hi fi. We have had systems before but the eternal muttering about the deck, cd player, amp, speakers, stands etc looking out of place wears me down.


I agreed that in our new home, we would just have a radio on the sideboard in our second living room. I bought a non working Pure Evoke DAB radio for £21 from the UK version of ebay. The virtue of that particular radio is that it comes with a satellite speaker. 

Simply unscrewed the back and inserted a Pi W with a Justboom AMP Hat (Zero) and a 250gb USB stick. 

Looks like a radio but has all the flexibility of MoOde and the sound is fine. 
   

Now that a precedent has been set, I am monitoring ebay for a cheap pair of Ruark MR1 speakers in soft grey. Those speakers are highly rated https://www.ruarkaudio.com/products/mr1-...ker-system

There is still a lot of work to do but the results are promising.
- raspberry Pi 3
- Hifiberry Amp2
- RTL2832U Stick for Dab+ and FM radio 
- many buttons (with separate python script for indicate short and long press action and so on)
- all parts printed by my self 

At the moment I have some software problems  and I also have to make the top cover. 

Best regards from Germany 
Thomas

Thanks so much for your entry into the "Show your audio system" thread. Informative content and step-by-step guide link. Planning on upgrading my equipment with a DDDAC1794 12V PS so that I can listen to it. 

Best,
