Beocreate sound card setup


Beocreate sound card setup

To use the Beocreate amplifier with a standard Raspberry Pi Linux distribution, you can simply use the HiFiBerry DAC driver:

cd /tmp
cat /boot/config.txt | grep -v "dtparam=audio" | grep -v "hifiberry" > config.txt
echo "dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac" >> config.txt
sudo mv /boot/config.txt /boot/config.txt.bak
sudo mv config.txt /boot/config.txt
sudo reboot

Now you can try playing a test tone using sox

sudo apt-get install -y sox
play -n synth sine 1000

If you don’t hear anything, this can be cause by multiple things:

  • The amplifier is muted. Check the “MUTE” jumper on the amplifier board. If the jumper is set, remove it.
  • You have no DSP program installed or an incorrect program.
  • Some settings of your DSP program are incorrect.
