    Overlay for DAC audiophonics i-sabre ES9023 in PcP 6.0.0?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently had my first experiences with PiCorePlayer as server+player and I am very impressed.
    I was using a DAC Audiophonics i-sabre ES9023. They have some instructions to install the DAC on PiCorePlayer:
    Audiophonics tutorial DAC PiCorePlayer

    These instructions from 2017 are a bit outdated and refer to PcP 3.20. However I notice that on their screenshots, the choice of audio interfaces in PcP menus for squeezelite includes:
    "I-Sabre-ES9023 DAC"

    This overlay choice is not in PcP 6.0.0. Choosing "ESS 9023 DAC" instead works, but there are no configuration options available.

    Does anyone know why the I-sabre-ES9023 was removed?

    Thanks, Marc

    The only cards using ESS products that officially supported are the.

    Audiophonics iSabre Q2M and the Allo Katana.

    All other DACs "might" work with a Generic i2s card. The reason for this is that only those two cards went through the proper driver creation process, and merged their drivers into the rpi kernel.
