Re: Strange issue - what model is my pi3 model b actually?

So I bought a raspberry pi 3 earlier this year, and it's been fine. I love it. However, I noticed when I checked the speed of the device today (for some reason I was curious), it said that the device was 600Mhz, and if i wish to edit the config file I could make it 700Mhz.

Re: How to use Raspberry as Hi fi sound card in desktop pc

"The PI as HiFi soundcard" I translate that as the the PI having HDMI sound output, so can a PI be used as an USB sound-card? Perhaps a bit insulting question for PI aficionados, but a valid one. AFAIK there is no "raspberry PI USB soundcard", and if there were one it could also be used with a PC, ...
