A "long time ago" I started asking about using a PI as an audio player and what board/s to use to get the audio.
Some people said the easiest way was to extract the audio from the HDMI port with a "splitter". (Ok, maybe not EXACTLY the words used, but please....)
I basically want to play back CD's (MP3 files) and have good quality - which I have been told is not available from the existing 3.5mm jack on the Pi. That is more for game quality sounds, rather than CD.
This project has again become interesting to me and I started looking.
I found this:

But think it is not exactly what I want.
It doesn't "fake" a monitor - does it.
I am wanting to run the PI headless.
Would this be better to get it working?

I didn't want to post to that thread as I think it is too old to dig up again, and rather post this new one with the new data I have.
Thanks in advance.
