Can you get "audiophile" sound using a native RP4 USB port into a DAC?
Hi @Jandu,

I'm looking for some clever advices, how to start a reasonable RP player into my already quite tweaked headphone chain. Originally I was looking at Allo's solution, but I'm a tweaker and also already short on place on my desk.

Would you be so kind to share some tips, how to achieve reasonable sound quality with ordinary RPI4? I'm not necessarily looking for the absolute best, but I've invested a lot (especially time) into my chain starting from the wall socket, so want to be effective in each step.

I have no previous experience with RP machines/OS, but I'm a oldschool PC nerd, so I have no problem setting up things, I'm just quite short on time to make all the research, since I see that's quite a lot. I understand that power supply makes a huge role like everywhere else, so I might be going for the Shanti.

I just need to play music that is locally stored on my PC, so no streaming or any other complicated networking stuff, just to bridge my PC -> Ethernet cable -> RPi4 -> USB -> RME ADI-2 DAC. I'm not familiar with any software / OS tweaking / HW tips to get things started properly, so any help is greatly appreciated  Heart
