Setup of a HifiBerry AMP2...on a Rapsberry Pi 2.
First attempt was with Volumio, as advised by a friend. Well that works, but I personally find the interface a horror, and I seem to lose control of the Pi since Volumio is a full OS that seems only accessible by web interface. No thanks.
Using Raspberry Pi OS:
- download Raspberry Pi OS lite (command line is fine)
- extract the image
- dd the image to the sd-card
dd if=/home/paul/2022-04-04-raspios-bullseye-armhf-lite.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
- mount it to enable ssh
- I also had to set a password for the pi user, since 'raspberry' was not accepted?
- Boot the Pi (the HifiBerry is still attached)
- ssh into the Pi
apt install vim

Comment out the first two lines, add the last two. Check here for other HifiBerries.
Now, before using mplayer or something, LOWER THE VOLUME! Use a really low value, and gradually go up while playing music since the default is extremely loud.
amixer -c 0 sset Digital "20%"
Thanks for listening :)
