Pls help with i2s media player

Hi everybody,

I have an ESP32-WROOM-32 set up like this (wiring image at the bottom); only relevant parts, I cropped out wifi etc.

esp32:
  board: esp32dev
  framework:
    type: arduino


i2s_audio:
  id: testy
  i2s_lrclk_pin: 9 #GPIO25
  i2s_bclk_pin: 10 #GPIO26

media_player:
 - platform: i2s_audio
   name: ESPHome I2S Media Player
   dac_type: external
   i2s_audio_id: testy
   i2s_dout_pin: 12 #GPIO14
   mode: mono

### ---> I've found this part when searching for i2s audio issues:
   on_pause:
     - media_player.stop

This is the output I receive when playing an audio file; I specifically chose a very short (<2sec) WAVE audio file hosted on my HASS server. Other media players in my network play this without issues.

Wiring is as follows

color ESP32 i²s board speaker
WHITE GPIO25 LRC x
PURPLE GPIO26 BCLK x
BLUE GPIO14 SD x
GREEN GND GND x
YELLOW VIN V5 x
RED x + +
BLACK x - -

It seems like the board crashes / reboots when I try to play media. Can you please tell me what I did wrong and/or what to do in order to fix this? Thank you in advance for your help :slight_smile:

Hi!
I have the same problem with a “az-delivery-devkit-v4” module (https://mischianti.org/esp32-devkitc-v4-high-resolution-pinout-and-specs/)
My setup is as follows:
ESP32-------MAX98357A
GPIO26------LRC
GPIO25------BCLK
GPIO22------DIN
GND----------GND
+5V------------Vin

GPIO17-------Relay module

When I try to play any media, the ESP32 reboots, even without the MAX98357 module connected. I didn’t have any problems with the internal DAC. Switched to external due to poor sound quality. I did some tests with different pins but no difference.
Has anyone managed to use esp32 with external i2s DAC?
