Analogue audio quality
#1
I use at this time a Raspberry Pi with HifiBerry-DAC and Kodi as music library/player. Due to my audio setup (vintage analogue amp) I cannot use digital audio. The analogue audio output via phone jack on the raspberry pi was very shitty and didn't work for movies at all. So I had to add the HifiBerry. I'm very content with that choice.

May question is now: How good will the audio quality be via the analogue phone jack on the Pine A64? And will there be any hassle with movie playback like on the raspberry pi? And if you'd advice a "pine-dac", when can I expect it to be available?

Thank you!

There is two HiFi companies already starts work with us on a analogue audio output add on card, and should be available around Q2 timeframe. Phone Jack audio quality is just OK and not good for audiophile.

The Pi connector in Pine A64 board doesn't share the I2S signals like RPi. The Pine A64's I2S signals located at Euler connector.
