product description

best in case you want to have higher audio nice and concentrate to music for your hi-fi machine ! Use the jack or rca to plug it on your stereo or amplified speakers. It may be used for high first-class audio for domestic entrainement structures, using raspian, volumio or for art set up. The excellent is a long way superior than the present jack of the rspberry pi four or 3, and less ressource consuming than usd sound card, meaning much less latency and cpu overhead. No cables or soldering required

    This is nothing special, just a 17 year old well proven NXP 1334A DAC chip – and by being that, it saved our project!An effort I’m involved in had a circuit board designed by someone else with a horribly mis-chosen DAC, a flaw I only became aware of at the last minute. So how on a Sunday can one purchase a generic I2S to analog DAC? Same day Prime of course!Board arrived the day I ordered it, quickly soldered up a custom wiring harness to drive the I2S lines with our circuit instead of a raspberry pi, and… audio! Based on that experiment the well proven NXP 1334A DAC goes into the next revision of our custom board, and everyone is happy.Do beware that in ordinary use this requires some soldering, and the ground pins will take a fair amount of heat. I imagine if you use it with a pi you also need to jump through some hoops to configure I2S output – there seems to be some guidance on the vendor’s website.Read more

    This board works but it has a light crackle when no audio is present. My board may be defective. After several emails to the seller/mfg’r, various troubleshooting efforts were made to eliminate the static. The suggestions I received were either a bad connection on the socket (faulty ground) or a problem with the amplifier/audio system or noise generated by the Pi-Zero.The crackling only appeared when the power is on and no audio was being sent to the board. When my music player Volumio is idle, not playing music, the amplifier plugged into this board would receive a light crackle. Once the music started, the crackling stopped but would return after the music ended. The crackle wasn’t present when the player was playing a silent MP3 file or when the volume on Volumio was turned to “0”. It’s worth noting that the static only occurred when playing through an amplifier, either my audio receiver or amplified speakers, and it occurred regardless of which Raspberry Pi it was attached to or what apps were running on the Pi (it started when it was simply turned on, before the Pi has loaded the OS). I tried running the output through two 1:1 audio isolation transformers and still received the crackling.I finally resigned myself to having the crackle on this board forever and have decided not to use it when building my Volumio player. My player build is currently on hold due to other projects but I haven’t decided on the audio for the project yet anyway.Read more

    So you can’t go wrong trying this out for just $15. I had an old logitech squeezebox go bad and needed a replacement. I already run 3 other picore players, but wanted something in this location that could try running two instances of squeezelite on one pi. So I needed two ways to get quality audio out and this fit the bill.Soldered it up in no time, and just selected “Hifiberry DAC +Light” in picore player and didn’t even have to run the script they ask you to run. The first attempt of a different Hifiberry setting failed to load, but I found that by looking in /var/log/ on the pi.Audio sounds great. I can’t tell any difference. I use these with Topping TP21 and TP30. The 30 has a usb direct input from the pi, but since I already had the TP21 I needed this RCA output as well for the second instance of squeezelite running on the same pi.Love it!Read more

    I was skeptical at first, getting descend sound from a pi zero sized DAC board. Well, I was blown away how good it really sounds! After I solderered the header, tested the line out (sounds really good btw), and listened for a few hours, it was time to solder some RCA Phono inputs. The photos attached are works in progress, but the sound from the RCA Inputs are just as good as the line out port. Definitely will buy anohter DAC HAT from pizero audio!Read more

    Easy enough to solder on the headers. The website information is good to get the software installed. Worked the first time. The board is actually different than the one in the photos – looks like some breakout holes have been added to allow access to some of the GPIO pins that the headers might cover up. I walked through their instructions and it worked immediately. I had plans to solder up my own voltage converter and make my own board but this was a real time saver. The website has a place to sign up for a newsletter and get a discount code so, check that out before you buy. I might get another one because these RPi zeros are so functional.Read more

    This DAC can be installed in almost every flavor of Rasberry Pi. I installed it in about 5 minutes. The information by the seller that you can find instructions in RASPIAUDIO com and voila! Note that the speaker on upper right presents the speaker crossed, but it works however. Also, pick the proper sound card or speaker in the configuration. Even if you don’t understand some of the steps it can work. Good luck fellow raspiersRead more

    I first tried to get this to work with MyMPD and ympd. I could not find what drivers or dtoverlay settings to use. If anyone knows I would love to hear about it.But then I tried Volumio and the card is selectable right there in the settings. Volumio provides all the functionality that I need and the card shows what it can do! I just use the audio out jack without the RCA jacks that need soldering. Slimmer package that way. Plug it into my DOSS speaker box and I have a great system for my front porch! It’s plugged onto a pi zero wh.Read more

    Connected and working fine with a Pi Zero W. Seems to work well.It seems like it might have been abandoned by the developer though. The website says “Optional landing for dual RCA phono connector”. So I use their contact link on their website to ask what the source or part number for the specific RCA jack. No response. I asked on Amazon hoping to get a response. Nope. I emailed the contact email address specified on their domain name. Like screaming into a void.If you decide to buy it, would be prudent to download a local copy of the install script for your future use if/when the site disappears without a trace.Read more
