    Finished the RPI streamer for another friend.
    This one has an internal power supply and is fitted with an SPDIF hat. Initially I planned on using the Hifiberry Digi+ but it doesn't work well with the display. 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:

    Thanks!
    I didn't use the Hifiberry beacsue it doesn't alow the display connecter to be fitted on the RPI.
    I used the PiFi HIFI DiGi+ instead. It is cheaper and I find it better constructed than the Hifiberry Digi+.

    Berlin BoomBox with Pi 3 and PCP 3.2

    I have to say, I love this one. Ok it doesn't sound so great but it is, IMHO, the very definition of cheap and cheerful.

    Integration is very basic:
    - The original power cable was extended with a Y cable powering both the amp and the Pi. Ground hum is tolerable, YMMV
    - The amp has auto shut-off, that's a nice thought when powering the box with batteries but it is a bit adverse in my case. I soldered a cable to a reset pad on the amp board and flip-flop a gpio output pin to wake the amp when needed. Squeezelite does that on power up, for example.
    - The Pi 3 is sort of a tight fit in there. I did away with the bottom of the battery compartment and mounted the Pi flush to the battery cover flap to expose its ports.

    And PCP does the rest, as usual

    Pi Case

    A case that I cut out of a 2.5" thick block of wood using my CNC. This is v2 which took just over 5 minutes total to cut.

    Using Official 7" display, Pi 2, HiFiBerry Amp+ and a couple of 2.5" speakers.
