Before making a decision to buy AP Thyaga DAC, I want to test if the AP Swara Streamer can bypass it's own DAC components and output it's digital audio via USB ports of its RPI. That way I can avoid buying a new Streamer to paid with AP Thyaga DAC.

I plugged my Dragonfly Black DAC to Swara streamers (RPI) USB ports, but couldn't make it work in Volumio.

Likely I am making a mistake in Audio Output selection in Volumio.

Any suggestions?

Don't select the I2S DAC option, keep it off. Once you connect the other DAC through USB, it will auto pop up below HDMI.

As @amrutmhatre90 has said it, don't use the I2S option. Check under USB dac and you will find your dragonfly dac. I2S is used to select onboard DAC.
