Just got one monday and could not get it to boot up. Seller eventually linked me to the new Rasbian OS. Apparently previous OS’s will not work on the new Pi, including Volumio and Max2play. Waiting to hear when they will be upgraded to run on the new board. Latest OSMC runs fine for people using Kodi.
Also on my original Pi, I tried the new Hifiberry Amp2 which uses a combination DAC and 50 watt class D amplifier chip. Wow that thing rocks. Tight, tuneful, lots of PRaT. Nice Streamer amp for just over $100. Plays via airplay, squeezelite, NAS files, Spotify, Tidal (via airplay or iPeng).

*update* Volumio has the new image ready to download.
*update* Max2play image available.

Good to know, I have three Raspberry Pi players scattered around the house with Hifiberry Digi cards and have been thinking about the Amp 2 with a set of bookshelves...

You can tart it up a little. The board connectors are a bit small.
