View Full Version : PiCorePlayer Sabre DAC 9023 not working

2017-04-17, 23:47
Hi all,

I have a DAC called Sabreberry. I got 3 of them and tested them with PiCore 3.11 and DAC settings I-Sabre-ES9023 DAC

Two of them are working fine but one not.

The one not working I hear the source playing but also noise as loud as the source, little like pink noise. I thought the DAC maybe damaged so I got new one and some more.
Problem is the same. Then I tested the DAC with the volumio player. and on this it works. So I think it is a settings issue

Following infos I have on the DAC

no I2C needed
no I2S clock
no EEProm
should work with hifiberry-dac-overlay

Ive tested all Sabre DAC and hifiberry DAC on the Picore Player 3.11 and the 3.20 beta. But problem is still the same.

Some idea of how I could get them working on the PiCore?
Is there a way to configure or change the existing DACs in the list?

Thanks a lot

Here I have a list of sample rates it should work but I'm not to deep into this issue to know whats up with this.


Framerates to 45.1584 should work
I should set 192fs oder 128fs and 96 with 382fs or 256fs but I don't know what it means

The DAC is from here http://muc89.com/minidac/i2s-dac/sabreberry.html

That sounds like an hardware problem. The one who isn't working is most probably broken.
You should contact your seller and issue a warranty claim.
