    HiFi Berry DIGI and DAC PI HATs

    Sorry if this is listed somewhere but I have yet found it.
    Is there a list of the above HATs that are tested and useable with picoreplayer on PIs 3 and 4?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure piCorePlayer is compatible with all of the HiFiBerry DAC/DIGI HATs. There was a thread here regarding some issues with the newest, expensive board, though. Search if that's the one in which you're interested.

    I did do a search before posting but I didn't know how to search for a 'short sentence' rather than a 'word' in a sentence
    The results were too numerous to be helpful.

    It's usually easier to just Google it using all the search "words" and slimdevices.

    put the short sentence in quotes, so it looks for this exactly. Also, I prefer to use google to search as it is often easier and just add the term, slimdevices.com to my search. For example, google search term:

    slimdevices.com Hifi-Berry DIGI

    I can give you one data point from personal experience. My DIGI2 Pro works just fine on a Pi2 and a Pi4 running piCorePlayer. (I've never tried it on a Pi3)
    Until recently: Transporter -> ATC SCM100A, now sold :-(
    House move forced change to: piCorePlayer(RPi2/HiFiBerry DIGI2 Pro) -> Meridian 218 -> Meridian M6

    As stated by others, in general all HifiBerry HATs are supported and working on RPI 2/3/4 B models hardware wise. Also the software must support them en most populair one's do like Max2Play, Volumio, PicorePlayer, etc etc. Never looked at more general purpose OS'es like Raspian etc but probably these will do support them too.

    From personal experience I had an AMP on a PI3B and currently a Digi+ on a PI2B en most recently a DAC2 PRO on a PI Zero W2. All with various versions of PicorePlayer through time.

    does the all-black SB sound better than the white SB?

    I have a couple of Pi3's equipped with HiFi DAC Pro w/XLR's interconnected directly to a pair of Crown XLS series amps. I am using Max2Play and Squeezelite SW. This setup has been working great for me.
