    I've got two of these, for two RPi3bs. They are solidly built and sound good to me.

    OK installed HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro and it sound as good as SB Touch on my HiFi (which probably isn't good enough to hear difference ) ..

    I tried different card ALSA output but again don't hear any difference.. Anyone knows what is all about?
