PecanPi®+ DAC

Next Generation fully balanced DAC with headphone amp and volume control

The PecanPi+ DAC is based on Asahi Kasei Microdevices’ (AKM) latest AK4499EXEQ chip. This device uses the latest multi-bit switched resistor digital-to-analog (DAC) method, employing VELVETSOUND™ technology.

AKM’s AK4191EQ ΔΣ Modulator is employed along side the AK4499EXEQ.

All of the digital processing is done by the AK4191 and the digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion happens in the AK4499. By splitting these two functions into separate devices AKM has minimized the effects of digital noise within the analog output, resulting in a perceived improvement of the ratio of signal to noise.

Turn your single-board computer (SBC) into the ultimate music player. No other Rpi DAC offers this level of dynamic range, dual DAC chips, and an amazing built-in headphone amp.

Great for tinkerers and DIYers.
