Audioberry has unveiled a new open source amplifier they have created which has been designed to provide audiophile amplification for streaming devices as well as mini PCs such as the Raspberry Pi.
The Zula amplifier has been developed to be the best in class, providing both exceptional value together with superb sound, and is now available to back. With pledges starting from just £24 for the Zula Raspberry Pi internal mount kit which will start shipping during November 2016.
Watch the video below to learn more about this affordable open source audiofile amplifier from Audioberry an Open-Source audio engineering company based in the UK.
We believe that superb sound should be affordable to all, not just the wealthy few. Zula is a superb Audiophile amplifier available at a fraction of the market price. Founded in 2014 by David Simpson and Paul Ponting, we are a small team of tech enthusiasts and industry professionals with over 80 years of combined industry expertise in electronic design and manufacture. We are here to reinvigorate the HiFi market. We were frustrated by expensive, poor quality and ugly audio products. Old style sales models (think high dealer mark ups and unnecessary functions) seemed outdated and out of touch. Everyone today wants to hear their music in a connected way. So, over the last two years we have worked to design, source, build and test Zula.
The exterior chassis is made from brushed metal and we offer an optional hand crafted Corian® case in white as an extra, which fits neatly over the top. Whilst Corian is more commonly used for bathroom and kitchen counter-tops, we’ve chosen it because of its great tactile qualities, durability and purity of colour. We feel that it gives the Zula amplifier a timeless, warm and modern appeal. It is pretty labour intensive to fabricate Corian because after being precision cut, it goes through a very long labour intensive hand finish. But what you get is something quite special.
Whichever look you choose, both have a stripped back minimal appearance which eliminates unnecessary inputs and functions that the majority of people don’t use.
