    Raspberry Pi acquires IQaudIO brand and products

    First audio board that I bought for Raspberry Pi was from IQaudIO.
    Was in the days when a bit of soldering was needed ... and was first time that I had soldered anything in years. It is still running LMS in a remote location.

    I can imagine that HiFiBerry etc will be concerned that new buyers will find RPT products first and prices will be driven down.

    I wondered why IQaudIO's website had been shuttered for so long

    Want a webapp ? Get SqueezeLite-X ! https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post903953

    I'm a big fan.

    I have two DAC+'s and a Codec + in service as well as a complete cased pi3B/DAC+ Spare.

    I also have an Amp +, a Digi + and a DAC + which are no longer required - as well as a load of case parts which they kindly sent me about a year ago when I couldn't get a case for their Codec +

    None of the seven cards have ever given me a moments problem and the DAC +'s replay DSD 384Kbit/s files without issue.

    In my opinion they'll certainly give HiFi Berry a run for their money.

    I noticed they renamed them from IQaudIO to IQaudio.

    I wonder why no "Digi" S/PDIF board.

    Shown here, with prices, available from Pimoroni:

    Isn’t the “Pi-Digi+” an S/PDIF BOARD?

    It is but it is not one of the boards that RPT said they would be offering.
    That Pi-Digi+ is presumably legacy stock at Pimoroni and at the legacy price range as well.

    The PiDac was my first HAT too. Soldered to the B+ board and it sounded great.
    As the Classic Squeezebox never gave up, and has the best screen ever, the PiDac wasn’t often in use.
