Re: this thread
I’ve bought a couple. I have one directly connected to my Core and to a small speaker: 1W nom, 8Ω - 40mm. I’m not using any external power.
I’ve connected the speakers to SPK 1 and DAC_1 as per this pic. I get sound of a decent quality but very quiet. If I try to connect the speaker to SPK 1 and SPK 2 I get nothing.
(Regarding volume control, I understand this is done by a “long press” on next track with Fidel’s library. I didn’t find this worked. It just kept moving to the next track.)
Should I also be powering the DFPlayer externally? If so, with what? A 5v supply? And would I tie the grounds? I’ve read not…
Hoping this thing is relatively straightforward to use - I want to use it to play specific MP3s as occasional alerts.
Thanks so much
