Clive, so have the unbuggy 384K, so seriously trying it out... I'm just tickled s***'less... and yeah, it's stifled by the BurrBrown
Some unlisted vid's just for fun...
What's with the LED's!?! *Blinking* 176K LED for 352K -- Playing with LMS DSD... somewhere it must be converting it to 32/352K -- squeezelite? I'm not upsampling it anywhere... thought DSD usually goes to 176 when PCM conversion has to happen, hmmm.
So much flavor!

I paid for a Kali which was delayed and when it eventually arrived it just worked when stuck between a rP12B and a chinese ebay version of the Audiophonics Sabre ES DAC (which I call an HFD, stands for Hoo Flung Dung). I also bought one of their $11 power supplies as it had the appropriate plug for the Kali. The Kali appears to have the early bugs fixed.
As for listening to it, I set up an identical rPi and HFD DAC both connected to my NAD C 725BEE amp on different inputs so a simple press on the remote swaped between them. The two players were synced, the Kali needing 700ms adjustment. The speakers are 1990 Klipschorns with updated crossovers. I played a variety of music, starting with the Chesky system evaluation CD, then classical, acoustic folk and finally Springsteen, all the while swapping back and forth. The music encoding is all 44/16 .
I could tell when the Kali was in circuit but it wasn't blatantly obvious to my 69 y.o. ears, the music just sounded clearer and more musical. So much so that after a couple of days I ordered another 3 Kali reclockers and power supplies for my other 3 rPi players.A camel is a racehorse designed by a committee.

iFi iPower supply? Are you willing to take a punt on spending 50 quid on a wall wart? Several of the a'phool types like using it. Yeah, I know what you are thinking.... 50 notes for a switcher, are you mad!?!?! But it's somewhat cheaper than the boutique $10,000 solutions used by Greg Stewart. (Although it's always interesting to read his musings.) Anyway, if you are willing to drop the 50 notes, based on my recommendation, to power Kali (and via Kali, DAC board and back-power Pi).
