    piCorePlayer with USB Speakers

    At a remote office I have a pair of ION Desk Rocker USB Speakers. They are quite good.

    Does anyone know whether they will work with piCorePlayer ?

    As far as I can see on the supported USB DACs page - https://sites.google.com/site/picore...st-of-USB-DACs - they aren't there and there is nothing that appears that is similar.

    Thanks Greg
    I shall report back. They are still made but now badged Alesis. A strange beast as they have mixed always on 3.5 aux and 2xRCA inputs and the USB operates both ways so the speakers can be used to digitise analogue input (ADC) as well as a DAC.

    These speakers are no longer available as iON Desk Rockers but they look exactly the same as the current Alesis M1 Active 320 speakers. I would expect them to work as well.
