1. How to use the pin header marked “PWR ON” , “SPK MUTE” and “AMP OFF”?.

  • PWR ON: Short - Auto power on when power applied, Open – Using an external latching switch to control power on/off
  • SPK MUTE: Short – Speaker un-muted, Open – Mute enabled and it is controlled by GPIO22 with additional software setting e.g high = speaker unmuted, Low=speaker muted
  • AMP OFF: Short – speaker in shutdown mode, Open – Speaker in operation mode

Hi,6~26V high power, when the load is large, you can use two power supplies to enhance the power supply.

when I look for DAC in VOLUMIO i don't see any x450 nor subtronic.

what is the correct selection to run this DAC?

you can always adjust volume through software. this applies to all dacs and all audio solutions. How it is achieved depends on the software.
