Raspberry Pi users that would like to add a little extra audio enhancement to their Pi mini PC, may be interested in a new Raspberry Pi DAC HAT created by Lucid Labs.
The Lucid Labs Raspberry Pi DAC add-on adds a 32bit/384khz audio interface to the Raspberry Pi model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 computers.
Allowing you to transform your Raspberry Pi mini PC into an advanced digital audio player or add extra functionality to your existing project.
“Do you have a hi fidelity stereo and want to add a high resolution music player? Chances are you’ve looked on the market and seen high resolution music players with network connectivity selling for thousands of dollars.
The Lucid Labs Raspberry Pi 2 model B/B+ DAC uses the Texas Instruments PCM5102A DAC chip. This chip features a Signal to Noise Ratio of 112dB and THD+N of -93dB. In addition, we have used an ultra low noise TPS7A4700 linear regulator to provide the PCM5102A with an extremely clean power supply. The result is incredible sounding audio. “
