[Guide] List of I2S DACs for Raspberry Pi

Postby Apache » Wed May 23 2018 11:21

This one is not in list so I have to post :

DAC : AK4495SEQ 32bit
From here: https://www.audiophonics.fr/fr/dac-diy/ ... 11966.html

To make it work you have to provide MCLK , 2x9 Vac and 2x15Vdc . For this I use Kali Recloker , some voltage regulators ( home made) and 1 trafo.
Architecture: Velvet Sound I2S
THD+N -101dB
S/N 123dB
Digital filters 4
PCM 384kHz
DSD tested : DSD64, DSD128 & DSD256.

Price: 79,00 €

It is working with Terra-Berry DAC2 driver but without hardware volume control. ( If somebody know how to make it work , please help).

I'm set up using Allo.Com Piano 2.1 and Kali reclocker hooked up to the Pi3B+ using Volumio. Works Great. Here is a quick video of it hooked up and working.
