Hi folks,

I've read in several threads how folks have replaced their dead Duet Receivers with Raspberry Pi's running piCorePlayer. Just a question out of curiosity: are there any benefits to doing that replacement now even before the Receiver dies? In other words is the Pi an "upgrade" one should consider doing because there's something so much better using a Pi rather than the "stock" receiver?

Related question: if I'm connecting a Pi receiver to a stereo system and speakers via RCA jacks, does adding a DAC (like the HiFiBerry) make enough of a sound quality difference to justify the "upgrade" to a Pi? Is the sound that much better than the "stock" receiver?
