    This is what I have done so far...


    It's the official 7 inch display case, RPi3 and a DigiAmp+ board from IQAudio. It's a tight squeeze and I had to cut away one of the back panel mounting lugs and make a cut away for the power plug. I also squeezed 2 speaker connections in . I need to tidy the cables up as this is a prototype. It seems to work ok and doesn't overheat but time will tell if it's reliable. Just need to find some means of fitting a lid of some kind on the back to make it complete.

          Thanks ! you got me blushing now

          These are the parts used:

          Enclosure:
          Hammond Enclosure 1455T2201BK

          Dac / hats:
          HiFi Berry DIGI+ clone for an SPDIF interface. It is cheaper that the HiFi Berry and includes a IR sensor.

          The one I built for a friend has analog output:
          Pi-DAC+

          Display:
          Official PRI 7" display
          I also used the black frame

          Power supply:
          Mean Well 5 volt / 3 A

          Connectors:
          DC Connector
          RCA connectors in case of a analog DAC.

          Additionally there are some mechanical parts (aluminium to fix the display to the enclosure). I will have to build another one fro another friend. I'll take some pictures and post them when I build it.

            Today I started building another streamer for another friend. This one will use the same Hammond enclosure but the display will be mounted straight (because the streamer will sit on a high shelf in his audio rack). This time I used a larger 2 mm aluminium plate so that the display is fixed with its 4 mounting screws. The same plate could be used in an angled setup.

            I'm still waiting for a few parts to arrive to complete the entire build. But I will post pics again when finished. This one will have a power supply inside and have a trigger control so that the streamer is automatically powered when the pre-amp switches on.

              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:

                  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.

                          My pi PAL

                          Hi; have a look at my "pi PAL".
                          Its a Tivoli PAL, which I upgraded with a Pi Zero W running the awesome piCorePlayer.
                          I wanted to have a very basic system with low energy consumption, so it is headless (-> use Smartphone as remote).
                          Also, I use no external DAC, but simple PWM Audio similar as on the Pi3. That is good enough for a desktop radio.
                          The power for the Pi is diverted from the PAL's internal batterypack, soldering an additional cable at the 4th battery (4.8V), which feeds the Pi +5V input.
                          Another nice feature: No additional switches etc. needed to be added to the PAL - just a hole in the back of the case to feed the audio cable from the pi to the Aux input of the PAL. Sticking that cable in the jack does 2 things: The PALs Amp is switched from Radio to Aux (-> the Pi). And the Pi is powering up, as this cable is also the (only) ground connection to the Pi! A nice feature of the piCorePlayer s/w is that it runs completely in RAM, so you can pull that plug (i.e. switching from Pi Audio to Radio and powering the Pi down) w/o risk of SD card corruption.
                          I am very happy with this setup. Also, battery live is pretty ggod: It is running almost a day already!
                          See http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...-and-Pi-Zero-W for some hurdles I had to go through to get it running.

                              Duh,

                              glad you like it, but that is literally the parts list...

                              The rest is "standard" or came from the parts box.
                              • Raspberry Pi Zero W
                              • "Audiophonics DAC Sabre ES9023 I2S vers Analogique 24bit/192KHZ Raspberry PI" (search this in ebay)
                              • "2004 LCD blue Display for Arduino HD44780" (again, this should produce a useful result in ebay)
                              • EC11 Rotary Encoder
                              • DIP4 push buttons
                              • bunch of 10k pull-up resistors
                              • IR Receiver 38 kHz TSOP4838
                              • the driver for the display background lighting is a BC546B with a 10k base resistor, any transistor will do the job
                              • 10k trimpot for the contrast
                              • since the pics were taken I added a 2200uF Panasonic FM cap across the power input under the DAC board
                              • the box came with cotton swabs
                              • the perspex is 3mm. My hardware store cuts them to measure as small as 10cm, 40ct a pop.
                              • all bolts and nuts M3


                              Any questions just ask.
