The Pi-DAC+ audio card for the Raspberry Pi B+ delivers outstanding sonic performance and full-HDaudio capability with build-in hardware volume control. The Pi-DAC+ also includes a high quality audiophile headphone amp. The Pi-DAC+ is a fully compliant Raspberry Pi HAT board with configuration EEPROM and both camera and screen PCB cut outs. It uses the Raspberry Pi’s I2S digital audio signals delivering much lower CPU usage vs. USB audio cards. No soldering is required.
The IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ is a fully built and tested Raspberry Pi B+ accessory, designed and made in the UK.
Output from the Pi-DAC is by industry standard Phono connectors (variable to 2v RMS) allowing easy connection to your existing Hi-Fi or sound system, headphone connection is by standard 3.5mm jack socket.
The Pi-DAC also provides access to the majority of the Raspberry Pi B+ I/O signals allowing flexibility to your project and easy connection to our other IQaudIO products. This allows for additional peripherals (buttons, LEDs, LCDs, rotary encoders, IR sensors or similar) to be added.
Audio pin headers are also included to connect to the Pi-AMP+ (due soon).
Use raw Linux, Volumio, RuneAudio, SqueezePlug, PiCorePlayer, PiMusicBox, AirplaySync, MDP or similar and listen to internet radio, your own digital music library, or streaming music services such as Spotify – all in magnificent audio quality. The IQaudIO Pi-DAC easily supports 24-bit / 192kHz file formats but is equally at home with lower quality MP3s bringing your music alive sonically.
Note : The Pi-DAC is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi B+
