DuckToller posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHI all, I am considering to get me a Mamboberry LS DAC+ / Mambo Media Player for my RPI 3+ and I was wondering if I could find some experience on this sweet little DAC. It has a Sabre 9023p DAC chip and allows itself and the RPI to be fed by a linear power supply with 5v (i.e. my HDPLEX), which looks theoretically promising. The price of a RPI3/Mambo Media Player is less than 200 Euro, shipped in Europe. My idea was to compare it to my CAPS Zuma/Klein DAC (AK4490EQ-Chip) for a start. Maybe keep it as a backup solution or as source for an headphone amp. Today, I use the RPI3/Volumio 2/Dragonfly Red/HD650 solution in my bedroom, which is already a step into the right direction ;-) Anyone has already got some experience on the Mamboberry solution to share with me? Thanx in advance Tom
Hi, The old laptop that I was using as media center died. The setup was modest: AMD processor from ~2011 8 gig ram external hard drive 3tb connected with usb 2.0 Software: Ubuntu Linux + clementine DAC: HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC ES9023 96kHz/24bit Music: a collection of FLAC files + radio (ICI Radio-Canada Première | Émissions, horaire, fréquences radio) I will be able to rescue to external hard drive and the usb dac at least. I am looking for a cheap replacement, so I am interested in best bang for buck up to 300$, but it can be really cheaper. I am looking at raspberry pi with hifiberry. A bundle with case and power supply is around 150$. I am wondering with that price range, or a bit more, if I could get better sound (post dac). I am open for other options (both software and hardware). I would also like to still be able to connect to my usual internet radio station (see link above). I have a bunch of XSPF playlist that I would like to keep and use without modification. On a side note, that laptop was also my backup server for other usb drive, the printer server. If I use volumio, or similar software, will I be able to still perform those tasks? I am looking forward to your suggestions. Best regards,
