    Anyone using a Earmen-TR AMP DAC with PiCorePlayer on the USB port ?

    I would like to audition this dac/amp but I'd need to pay a 10% restocking fee and return postage if I want to return it. It would be best to know beforehand if this combo works. Right now I am using a cheapo USB dongle (XtreamPro X-1) with picoreplayer. Thanks.

    Since you haven't had any response to date I suspect no one that frequents it uses that DAC
    An alternative at about the same $/ú is an Audioquest Dragonfly Red- its a highly rated 24/96 capable USB DAC.
    I have two of its slightly lower spec baby brother the Dragonfly Black
    Or do you need higher res?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I see that I can try the Dragonfly and return it at no extra charge if I do not like it.
