pHAT DAC - no volume control



I’m using the pHAT DAC on Raspberry Zero with Raspbian Stretch. The playback works great but the volume control does not work at all. MPC shows the volume as “n/a” and alsamixer does not show any sound device at all. And idea what I might be missing?



I was able to control the volume following the instructions on

Not quite sure what that does exactly but with that the alsamixer shows a “master” output and the volume can be controlled, while mpc still does not show any volume level on its own.


install Pulseaudio:
and you will be able to control the pHAT DAC volume with pavucontrol.
