The German company Abacus with more than 35 years of experience in the audio hardware industry released the new Raspberry Pi sound card AroioDAC. Abacus´s sound engineers paid close attention to audiophile power management and the elimination of jitter for the new AroioDAC, created with German engineering knowhow.
“Through several years of experience with Aroio streamer modules in various products, ABACUS now knows the potential of connecting a D / A converter chip with short paths to a Raspberry Pi mini-computer. Based on this experience, a separate version of a D / A converter module for the Raspberry Pi has now been developed, where the main focus was on clock generation and power supply.” said Abacus in the German website.
What makes the AroioDAC sound card stand out:
– Two independent master clock chips for 44.1kHz and 48kHz sample rates with precision in frequency help to prevent any undesirable modulations or jitter
– Three precise voltage regulators for analog part, digital part and clocks to avoid any inconsistencies from the power supply
– L/R RCA sockets and IR-receiver to control your device remotely
– 4-way multilayer PCB for optimal power supply
– Blue LED indicator to show which master clock is currently active
– Separate 8-pin GPIO header for audio connections
– ID EEPROM non-volatile memory for HAT
Furthermore, it is a fully compatible with the latest version Raspberry Pi 4 and has full software support by Max2Play. The AroioDAC sound card can be purchased on shop.max2play.com.
