Hi, I'm a Plex user and I was thinking of buying a Chromecast Audio but the 96MKHz limitation made me look further. So I I'm trying to figure out if a Digi+ suits my neeeds. I don't want a Volumio or such because I like integrated recommantadions, ratings and such. My Plex pass is OK for that. There is also the Rasplex solution but as far as I understood, it is a client while I would prefer a Plax sever directly connected to my AVR (toslink), but with mobile and cloud synchronization capabilities.
I would prefer a Raspian powered device sine I already have a Raspian seedbox and I'm happy with Debian. In this scenario :
1/ is it really as simple as https://support.hifiberry.com/hc/en-us/articles/205389831-HiFiBerry-installer and then https://support.hifiberry.com/hc/en-us/articles/205377651-Configuring-Linux-4-x-or-higher to enable to make the Digi+ work ?
2/ Is is possible to let a Raspian Plex server directly play FLAC 192/24 through toslink, receiving orders from a Plex mobile app or web frontend ? Or is there a need to, install something more ?
