VOLUMIO soundcheck invitation for Hamburg, Germany

judydudi, thank you for your work. I like read your reports from soundchecks.

Raspberry pi DAC family growt every day :). The DACBERRY ONE+ looks very interesting. I'm interested in DAC with Digital audio input. What a pity they didn't choose better chip. When I read about orchardaudio and their PCM1794, I'm thinking about change my audiophonics 9038 :).

OK,

yesterday we listened in a blind test to these devices:

DACBERRY ONE+ ( https://www.osaelectronics.com/product/ ... -one-plus/ )
SABREBerry (upsampling to 24 bit necessary because of a 48mhz clock hardware change) ( http://www.muc89.com )
Mamboberry Crystek clock ( https://www.collybia.com/product/mambob ... 2khz24bit/ )
Boss 1.2 ( https://www.allo.com/sparky/boss-dac.html )
IQaudioDAC PRO ( http://iqaudio.co.uk/hats/47-pi-dac-pro.html )

using Volumio 2.452 and allo 5V3A for all

The DACBERRY pro didn not sound well above 70 loudness so i choose the sabreberry instead.
I wil give the DACBERRY PRO a second chance later... ;-)

The surprise was, that we really like the new DACBERRY ONE+
Clear and bright in full frequency range. keep in mind this board also have a headphone jack and Optical (TOSLINK) conn. !!
i it's a usefull 'all in one' board!
Better was only the Mamboberry and the IQaudIO PRO.
Both where more detailed in full range , more clear bass. the scene was wider and touched us even more.

Hope this helps a bit...

2Jens: But Mamboberry cost 100 Euro and IQaudio Pro about 50 Euro or DACBERRY ONE+ 65. But Mamboberry looks nicer :).

It was previously said Mamboberry with IDT clocks will be used for the particular soundcheck (which made sense for the price range of the last group).
@Jens (judydudi), can you confirm you indeed included Mamboberry with Crystek clock (not with IDT)?
I'm bit disappointed because I wanted to see how Mamboberry with IDT fares with the rest of the devices. Crystek almost doubles the cost of that HAT.

Otherwise, hello to everybody :) I was watching the thread for a while with interes but this is my first post.

Hello Jens,
when do you plan new soundcheck invitation? :) And is it any difference between IDT and Crystek when you use with Kali reclocker? Please can you measure power consumpiton of HD+ with Kali when you use power supply only for Kali+HD+?

Best regards petr

Hello Jens,
Have you heard anything about DAC Khadas Tone Board?

https://www.khadas.com/tone

Maybe it would be good to try it to your invitation. It can be used with RPi (maybe even with Kali) or with their board VIM.
