After a bunch of troubleshooting I have come to the conclusion that my issues are likely because of the type of SD card I am using in my Pi3 with my Pisound. My issues are booting issues and overall stability.
Can you all post how solid your setup is and what make/model of SD card you have? I need to get a new one that doesn’t malfunction when the Pi heats up and within operating range (up to 80 C).
My bad card is a Samsung EVO Pro 32GB. What is yours and does it work well? Do you have any unexplained issues?
See this post here, Pi won't boot with PiSound attached, for my troubleshooting journey to arrive at asking this question.
