NanoSound DAC 2 – World’s first Raspberry Pi DAC with Colour OLED display, onboard dual clock, improved sound quality and much more.

The original NanoSound DAC is one of the most successful Pi Audio Products launched via Kickstarter, with 274 very satisfied backers and delivery on time. NanoSound DAC is a Raspberry Pi Add-on Board with HIFI DAC, LDO Voltage Regulator, OLED Display, Power Switch, Control Buttons and Infrared Remote.

It was rated a full 5 out of 5 rated by Official Pi Magazine and dramatically improves the audio quality of your Raspberry Pi.

The all new NanoSound DAC2 has kept all the benefits of NanoSound DAC and made improvements in all areas.

NanoSound DAC2 – Sound Quality Improvements

  • 2 x ultra accurate active master clock for lower gitter and better DSD performance
  • Improved and wider sound signal paths
  • Critical electronics component uses top audio grade capacitors by ELNA, WIMA, EVOX instead of much smaller and cheaper surface mount counterparts

NanoSound DAC2 – Convenience Improvements

  •  Digital knob style volume control for maximum accuracy
  •  Reusable accessories such as NanoSound Amp^2
  • Choice of 1.5″ OLED Colour Display to display album artwork
  • Dual power input is now autoswitching instead of using a manual toggle switch
