    Very cool! Been thinking of doing something similar for portable use - already have one rpi inside a 1950's tube radio.

The PCB sits over the display connecter and so obstructing the display cable. The Hifiberry "clone" does not have that issue. The clone also has a better supply filtering on board.
    The streamer also has a 12 volts trigger input so that it is automatically powered on when the preamp is switched on.
    Below are some pictures of the streamer:

    OK - now I am inspired to clone your work ! I am planning to build in a power supply as well, but will use a Hammond toroidal transformer and a linear dual regulator like this one. This will enable me to separate the power for the Pi and the DAC (I have an Allo Boss). Also planning a combo switch/filter/fuse power input module.

    A couple of questions:
    - does this version use the same Hammond box as your previous ones - just not chopped as much? Looks like it is a lot deeper and I will need the extra room.
    - Looks like you used a longer-than-standard display cable - where did you get that?

    Thanks for a great design!
