A distinctive design choice, for an intriguing new I2S DAC

Welcome the MAMBOBERRY LS DAC+

We’ve promised that Volumio Shop will be the place where curious audiophiles could find the latest and finest products from independent manufacturers, and with today’s addition we’re definetely pursuing that goal. The Mamboberry LS DAC + is definetely a must-have for discerning audiophiles, let’s see why:

First, it can be fed with an external 5V Power Supply, and we all know how critical a good power supply is for sound quality. Pair this beauty with a good PSU like the Ifi iPower and you’ve done all the clever.

Then, it features the Sabre ESS 9023 which is just an amazing DAC, with the highest performance\cost ratio ever… We love its detailed yet pleasant signature, and the implementation on this DAC is indeed very good. Which brings us to third point.

The Mamboberry is made with carefully selected components, and yes they make a difference. Nichicon audio series main filter caps and Susumu low noise resistors, just to name a pair.

To sum it up:

The Mamboberry LS DAC+ is one of the finest implementation of the beloved ESS 9023 DAC, with a a very sophisticated power supply, made with selected high quality components.

A Specific design choice

There’s no doubt that every product is shaped as a consequence of its designer’s philosophy, belief and priorities. Here on Volumio Shop we would like to show a bit of this “behind the curtains” of what’s going on on the audiophile scene, and meet together its fautors. So let’s get to know the heart and souls behind this DAC: Collybia Team, with their own words.

Collybia Team Audio was founded in 2015 by a team of audiophiles including an experienced engineer, devoted to design and build user-friendly high-end music reproduction products at an affordable price. Music is what matters most at Collybia and we like to turning sound into an experience.

OUR AIM

Our approach is to connect the listener with the experience of his and her favorite music. We use technology, our experience as audiophiles, our shared passion for music, and our fair share of hard work, to develop products which help create excitement and inspire emotions in the listener: create a total musical experience.
And to make it all as accessible as we possibly can: affordable and user-friendly.
Mamboberry DAC series are the most vivid example of our approach.

With MamboberryHiFi DAC+ we start the revolution at the DAC-HAT’s market, for Raspberry Pi boards with our special approach to implement, in a unified product (DAC), a very sophisticated power supply.
We continue with Mamboberry LS DAC+ this revolutionary mission by selecting high quality parts for the board and focusing on eliminating the “noise” at the power rail.
The feedbacks are awesome and overwhelming from the Audio community in the planet and especially from diyaudio community and Professional Audio reviewers.
We like to thank you all and we will continue to produce affordable high quality audio products for all.

Because Music is a feeling and at Collybia Team we like to share it with everyone!

We’re sure that the Mamboberry LS DAC+ represent a great addition on Volumio’s Shop, and we hope that most of you will find it as intriguing as we do. To make it more interesting, the first one that buys the LS DAC+ and writes a detailed review, will get a full refund of its purchase.

Passionate. Heretical. Deeply in love with Technology and Music. I live in Florence, Italy where I teach Interaction Design and Marketing. I'm Volumio's founder and CEO, and I love every second of this great adventure. My audio gear is some strange mix of valve and digital amplifiers, all self built in some cold winter sleepless nights. And I just can't turn that volume knob down.

    Hi,

    Got the Mamboberry LS DAC+ in the mail yesterday! It was packaged really well and it made it over to the US in perfect condition. Shipping was very fast and all my question were answered within a few hours = Excellent customer service!!

    In the box were two stand-offs in a separate bag so I could mount it quickly to the RPI. In the past I have been running USB dacs since it looked “easier” to just plug something in. Well, I’m kicking myself now a bit that I haven’t done this sooner, because plugging in the Mamboberry board was just as easy since all it required was attaching it to the rpi and then specify the Mamboberry DAC as an output in Volumio, restart and then it works.

    So what about the sound? I have only listed to it now for a day so I will need to spend some more time with it. I also need to point out that I have so far only powered it via the RPI with a cheap power supply. My plan is to add a better external power supply later on.

    With that said, my first impression was WOW! This is really good! I had been eying the Mamboberry HiFi DAC+ for a while due to all good reviews it received. Once I saw that the LS announced I just had to get one.

    I pulled out another SABRE 9023 USB dac that I had and did some A/B comparisons, and it was a night and day difference. The mamboberry is really clear, smooth, with lots of dynamics and tight low-end. Can’t wait to see how it will sound with a good power supply!

    Will keep listening and update later on when I have some more time on it. So far, I’m more than pleased. Very enjoyable listening.

    BTW: What power supply are you using?
