I have it setup in config.yaml as said in the doc Music Player Daemon (MPD) - Home Assistant
Example configuration.yaml entry
- platform: mpd
Is there a better to get moode to connect to HA? I’m going to ask in the moode forum as the dac is working is great and I’ll post the solution, might help someone.
Thank for the help and awesome product!
So, I haven’t really have to time to play with it yet and therefore it is sitting unused for now :(. Anyone got it working with something else besides volumio? The features I’m aiming for is spotify connect and connecting to home assistant. bluetooth connections would be a nice to have as well (it is what I sometimes use on my muse proto).
Hi for now we have successful reports that the MEGA AMP works with
-Moode with spotify connect (Renk1)
In a general way anything that supports HifiBerry Amp2 should also be compatible with our MEGA AMP.
As a side note MEGA AMP will be available on Amazon Europe this week.
Hi I wondering has anyone tried to use this Hat with a argon one case. I am having a little trouble getting it to work. It seems the Pi detects the hat but doesn’t allow any audio to be pushed.
As far as I know the argon one case is using 4,22,23 pins of the gpio. is there any info on how this hat utilizes the gpio pins?
Here is the pinout ,Yellow == used :
GPIO4 it used by the MEGA to enable amp.
1- First validate that everything is working as expected without your case
2- If you really need this case and you want to have the GPIO4 available we thought about that eventuality. you could free un the GPIO4 by cutting JP1 with a cutter, the downside is that the amp will be always on, it you need to revert you would need to add so soldering point on JP1.
JP1 is here:
Let us know if you need help, it is still a new product and we will document it better soon.
Thank you for the info and details.
Yes you are right, it does work without the case.
And I don’t need this case. Thank you for the help either way. I decided to just go with a open case.
Also seriously awesome that you replied so quickly and with all this detail. I saved the Diagram just in case I would need it in the future. Just wanted to let you know I appreciated the help very much!!!
You are very welcome feel free to put a review on Amazon, it helps.
Also if you could share here how you intend to use the MEGA amp, is it for music in a living room? What distribution you plan to use, Volumio?
I will be using Raspberry OS distro in kiosk mode. I will be using it in my home to display multimedia and play smooth Jazz in a lounge room.
I do have 2 more questions.
Looking at the diagram you sent earlier if I want to solder a case fan to say pins 4 and 6. It shouldn’t be a problem for the mega amp right?
Also could I use a type C charger that is 30 watts and can supply 15v?
Sure you can use pin 4 and 6 for a fan.
35w USBC could be a bit weak especially at high volume, I recommend a 65w or 100w with the right cable.
The USB c PD will negotiate a 15v profile.
Thanks again for your help
