    RaspTouch - Official aluminium 7" LCD chassis - piCore & RuneAudio compatible

    Hello guys,

    We are very proud to present our last chassis to build Raspberry audio players, the RaspTouch.

    This chassis is made to care the 7" Official Raspberry LCD screen using DAC of your choice.
    It's initially made to care our own DAC (ES9023 & ES9018K2M), but you can also use other DAC like Hifiberry or others rewiring RCAs with wires.

    We hope that piCore community will like it !
    Please support us on Kickstarter !

    That does look very nice.
    Lots of options on Kickstarter.

    @audiophonics: are you intended to deliver a full working, plug and play PicorePlayer system out of the box?

    I think this is something which is missing. I can build replacement for the
    touch, but as far as I know, I can't buy then as an assembled device. And
    your case looks great!

    Unfortunately not, even if it work pretty good.
    But piCore is so complete and have so many plugins, multiroom support, micro core ... that we was afraid about customers support

    We spent more time on Volumio and RuneAudio past months so we are more confident about our skill on it.

    But we are talking with piCore player team about improving our hardware support.
    And anyway, we will try to offer a ready-to-flash piCore image.

    You can buy it fully assembled, but you will have to add software yourself.

    Very nice, but it seems much bigger than it needs to be. With an external amplifier or receiver, I like smaller units the size of the original SB Touch. I'd love a nice case that like to contain the Raspberry Pi instead of the current options on the market which leave it exposed...just in case you wanted to build something else.

    With the current size you have there, could you make an option that included a built-in amplifier? That would be ideal for those places where a single unit and a couple of bookshelf speakers is appropriate.

    It looks like a HiFiberry Amp+ might fit in the case. The power supply might not work with that dac/amp.
    2 Duets controllers, 1 X Boom, 1 X Radio
    1 X Receiver + Audioengine A5
    1 X Receiver + Yamaha RX-A2000, Polk M70
    1 X Receiver + Boston MicroSystem CD
    Raspberry Pi 2 B, HiFiBerry Dac+ & Max2play
    HTC 10 w/ Squeeze Ctrl
    ReadyNAS 516 LMS 7.9.1

    This is a good suggestion.

    We already think to that, and will surely offer a dedicated amp board in next months with optional parts needed to add to rasptouch (rear panel and binding posts).

    Hifiberry AMP+ can fit, but it will not be compatible with our power management board and 4 holes must be drilled for speakers outputs.
    So you should buy the chassis only version with Latching power switch, and add parts.
