Product Description

Why do we love IQaudio Pi-DAC Pro? Simply. Because the Pi-DAC PRO plugs directly on the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3, there’s no need to solder or modify your Raspberry Pi and you can be enjoying Full HD audio in minutes.

Allo team used the Texas Instruments PCM5242 DAC, the big brother of the pcm5122. Featuring balanced output, better Signal to Noise Ratio and THD. With the Linux drivers built in to Raspbian no kernel recompilation is needed and the DAC PRO is supported by all the regular audio software, just like the Pi-DAC+. It’s also compatible with the Pi-AMP+

The Pi-DAC PRO also includes the Pi-DAC headphone amplifier delivering an all in one Full HD audio experience for those who listen through headphones, volume is again hardware based under software control and shared with Line Out.

With Differential / Balanced output it allows connection to studio equipment or powered speakers over long cable runs. Now you can run your disco, radio station or home studio from a Raspberry Pi!


Finally, the Pi-DAC PRO is a fully HAT compliant Raspberry Pi expansion board with EEPROM support, the Pi-DAC PRO delivers Full HD audio from your Raspberry Pi. As the Pi-DAC PRO uses the same family of audio chipset as the Pi-DAC+ and full Linux device driver support is already built into the official Raspbian Linux distribution.
