This will allow us to retain and/or update our existing audio equipment and future-proof the Pi-Digi+ output device.
I see the I2S creeping into DAC. But my major issue is to provide more flexibility to the excellent Digi+. This addition (even if I2S is not offered as an output), will allow the Digi+ to be connected to professional gear. Yes, this is a little selfish as all my equipment is pro-audio.
Not being an electrical engineer, but it would seem (to my uneducated mind) that the existing Digi+ board could easily be re-designed to make this possible.
Please any input especially technical (but make it easy for me and others to understand)..
