Hi Hardbit,

Apparently the P5 connector is integrated with the new 40 pin GPIO.

All is not lost, my friend!

Will it improve the audio quality using Volumio with the new B+ ?
Just read some news, and I can't make up my mind...

Any reason why the volumio wouldn't work on the b+?

Will we be seeing a "proper" version for the Raspberry Pi B+? I tried booting Volumio 1.4 on my model B, performing apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and neither the USB or Eternet ports are functional when the updated SD card is booted on the B+. Any ideas?

Raspberry Pi B+ works with RPi-DAC and RPi-DAC-RCA ! :D :o

Yes, I2S pins from P5 are gone. I2S is now on GPIO header, different pins.
DAC works with wires (modified PCB coming soon) and: KERNEL PATCH needed!
Just wires does not work.

BTW: If you try to enable the /etc/modules for HifiBerry or RPi-DAC - you system will hang if you play to I2S.
Without kernel patch (modified pinmux) it cannot work.

Best regards and happy B+ DAC listening.

quick and dirty way to get volumio running on a model b+:

head to http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ and download latest noobs install.

open up the zip.
locate boot.tar in os/Raspbian.
extract bootcode.bin and kernel.
copy bootcode.bin and kernel to root of your existing volumio sd card.

follow up with:
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo rpi-update
sudo reboot

you may have to reconfigure audio:
sudo lsmod | grep 2835
sudo amixer cset numid=3 #
;# == 0=auto, 1=analog, 2=HDMI
