The HifiBerry DAC (Now in stock)
Well the Hifiberry DAC for the raspberry pi has finally arrived from Switzerland, so let's give it a blast through my hifi! Now normally i would listen to my music collection using my Squeezebox Touch and tablet/smartphone, however this clever addon for the pi can turn this little fella into a headless squeezebox!
As the squeezebox touch has now been discontinued by Logitech, i was very interested to see how this DAC performed. The onboard DAC fitted to the raspberry pi is a 24bit Burr Brown capable of playing up to 24bit/192khz hires audio. So for hifi lovers like myself out there i couldn't resist trying this out especially as i'm a tinkerer of all things electronic, just ask my wife! The only thing that is missing now is a case, a standard case for the raspberry pi will not fit as there are two RCA connectors coming from the DAC which sits on top of the Raspberry pi.
