The DigiOne and DigiOne player are relatively expensive when compared to similar solutions, but they are definitely worth every penny of it. What we have here is something that was not designed to sound good, but to sound as best as possible (on Raspberry PI), and this is not yet another case of over-engineering: they made clear design choices which my listening impressions confirm to be correct.
UPDATE: On sale is version 1.2 of Digione, which has very important improvements:
Improved ground sensitivity (rock solid with any DAC and AMP including ones with relays)
Small improvement on jitter
