Audio DACs - why we do not recommend it - Daniel_BlueWave - 04-09-2020

Even though OpenAuto Pro is based on the regular Raspberry Pi OS some users have issues with configuration of DAC products.

Please note that audio DACs are often not the Plug & Play devices and requires additional configuration under Linux environment.  In such case you should try to contact DAC manufacturer in order to troubleshoot the problem.

We do not recommend those devices for less advanced users and we strongly suggest to use simple, cheap USB devices. Most of them are Plug & Play devices that do not require any additional configuration.

OpenAuto Pro relies on the audio configuration of the Raspberry Pi OS. It does not communicate directly with any sound device but bases on the Raspberry Pi OS capabilities. Process of the audio device configuration is the same as for the stock Raspberry Pi OS - in fact OpenAuto Pro is an application installed on top of the latest Raspberry Pi OS. BlueWave Studio did not add any custom modifications to the Raspberry Pi OS that could make the configuration process different than for stock version of Raspberry Pi OS.
