The Allo BOSS DAC at a glance:

  • Bass is punchy and present but yet very controlled. This is the best bass I’ve heard from any I2S DAC. That does not mean this DAC has a “dark” sound signature since it delivers a balanced reproduction.
  • Dead silent. There is no noise whatsoever, therefore dynamics and detail are really standing out. The instrumental separation and level of detail is one of the best I’ve ever heard.
  • Acoustic guitars and bass guitars are just fantastic with the BOSS
  • Thanks to the ultra-accurate clocks in Master mode this  DAC delivers an engaging musical representation (excellent PraT)

 

IMPORTANT: THE ALLO BOSS PLAYER IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ONLY FOR EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS

Currently, the BOSS Player is available only for customers from some selected european countries. We are working with Allo to extend availability worldwide. This will happen around the first days of June. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

      If you are from Europe, you must select Europe for shipping, so you won’t be charged with additional custom fees.
      Product-wise, there are no differences

    Hello. I’ve recently bought a Boss Player.
    It is working well. But sometime it has paused playing for about 5 seconds and continued. It is not occurring often. However I’ve noticed twice up to now. Do you know why?

    Question

    On your web site ALLO – THE BOSS PLAYER is price at From:€114.90
    However, there is only an option to add to cart at €141.90. Why is that?
    Also, would it be more cost effective to buy the separates parts and assemble it myself?

      From reply above: If you are from Europe, you must select Europe for shipping, so you won’t be charged with additional custom fees.
      That’s why you see the 141,90 price.

      No, you won’t save money buying components separately as on bundles there is a discount.

    Question

    What is the power supply that comes with the unit? Is it going to power the BOSS or the RPi in the default configuration? Does the case allow for adding a second power supply and powering both, Pi and BOSS, separately?

      Sorry, I was wrong:
      You can connect 2 PSU to the boss player.
      First open the case and set the jumper for separate powering, then close the case.
      Power the BOSS with a USB type C and the PI with Micro USB

      The PSU is a 5V 2A power supply with micro USB connection, it will power both the pi and BOSS. The case does not allow for separate power to be fed

    Question

    I have problem placing an order for the Boss player shipping from Europe to Taiwan as the shipping calculator did not work. Though the one shipping from India works fine, I would prefer one shipping from Europe. Could you manage to take my order manually? Thanks.
