RASPTOUCH ES9038Q2M KALI EDITION

HIFI Streamer with DAC ES9038Q2M with RECLOCKER ALLO KALI and volume / source controller



Rasptouch Front View with 7-inch touch screen

The concept


Audiophonic's RaspTouch is a simple and effective hardware solution combining both network drive and DAC with reclocker. The device offers exceptional audio quality due to high level Digital / Analog conversion based on ES9038Q2M and Allo Kali reclocker.

The RaspTouch lets you enjoy your favorite music while controlling playback from its 7 "touch screen, smartphone or even your PC. The PCB dedicated to playing audio file works with a SBC (Single Board Computer) Raspberry Pi 3 B+ . This circuit is the reference area and the most powerful model offered by the brand.

With its large screen and wide audio connectivity, RaspTouch combines ergonomics and smoothness of sound reproduction for increased music enjoyment.

Warning: this version does not support DSD

The DAC

Internal view Rasptouch Audiophonics


For this version of RaspTouch, Audiophonics integrates the excellent ES9038Q2M converter supporting sampling rates up to 384kHz 32bit. It integrates a high precision 100MHz clock, low noise LDO regulator, an ultra-low noise regulator (9μV) for the reference voltage of the chip and an ESS Altera processor.

This DAC uses HyperStream 32bit technology with a wider dynamic range while drastically reducing jitter. With this design, ES9038Q2M displays a dynamic range of 129dB and THD + N of -120dB to offer new musical horizons.

32-bit attenuation technology enables lossless volume control and direct use without preamp. This hardware volume control is controllable from Raspberry through diponible dedicated driver in our Image Volumio or under Dietpi. 

With an integrated microprocessor, the DAC is capable of automatically detecting the format and sample rate source and adapt automatically. It thus automatically detects if the source is 16bit / 24bit remaining bitperfect. This control by CPLD chip maintains high stability while preventing decoding problems as well as audible artifacts apparation.

It is compatible with formats up to 384kHz on its 2 inputs. It embeds two bipolar operational amplifiers NJM 2114 9V fed to the converting section current / voltage I / V, which allows a large analog output quality. A final PDO NJM 2214 used buffer completes the analog output stage and ensures optimum return.

Reclocker KALI ALLO

Connections neat practical design DAC hi fi audio player


In addition to the excellent DAC ES9038Q2M the Rasptouch Kali release includes a high performance reclocker KALI developed by ALLO. Thanks to its dual clock 44/48 MHz erasing inaccuracies related to the internal clocks of the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, the Reclocker greatly increases the device's performance in terms of accuracy & clock noise.

The Rasptouch KALI EDITION and offers sound quality equivalent to the best streamers audiophile market.

The connection

Connection Rasptouch Kali


The RaspDAC offers full connectivity let you enjoy your audio system and it very simply. We find the connections of Raspberry Pi with 4-port USB-A 2.0, a Micro SD port, an Ethernet port and a remote HDMI output. On the USB ports you can connect all kinds of compatible devices:

  • Hard Drive or USB Key
  • WiFi USB Key
  • USB external DAC
  • Keyboard / Mouse ...



    The DAC provides an analog output and a stereo RCA input SPDIF Coaxial. Power is supplied by a DC base 5.5 / 2.1mm connected to an integrated linear power supply allowing good stability. The maximum input voltage is 7 to 9 V DC and up to 12V maximum.

    The power button does not just turn off the power, but before launching system shutdown. It is also possible to switch it off from the interface of Volumio.

    Beware, despite the native WiFi connectivity Raspberry Pi 3 B+, the latter was sacrificed to install the drive in an insulated aluminum housing disturbances. The wifi connection requires a USB on external adapter (Dongle Wifi) ..

the Software

Sofrtware Volumio for DAC Audiophonics


Announcing himself as a free system, the RaspTouch comes without operating system. This choice depends on your hardware, the ambition of the project and the expected functionality.

The device is ready as far as electronics are concerned, So it remains to choose an operating system and mount it on the provided micro-SD card. Many softwares are available to meet all your expectations: piCorePlayer, Max2Play, OpenELEC, Volumio ...

Depending on the software, you can access the following features:
- Complete Support and unlimited Multiroom
- Remote Play audio files stored on a media server connected to the network (NAS)
- Remote reading from a UPnP source.
- Playback from USB source (hard disk, USB key)
- DLNA Management
- Support Qobuz
- Support Airplay




The unit comes with an appropriate micro-SD card to install the operating system.

This step can be bypassed by you providing a Micro-SD card pre-installed and ready to use with a software solution.

Très bonne machine!
Reçu il y a peu, j'ai installé ce Rasptouch facilement malgré mon peu de connaissances en informatique et dans le domaine de Raspberry, en suivant les tutos disponibles sur le site Audiophonics et Qobuz.
Une première installation avec picorepalyer v5.0.0 n'a pas correctement fonctionné (pas de prise en charge du bouton d'alimentation, interface capricieuse).
J'ai alors installé Max2Play (certains plugins sous licence, mais coût modique), tout fonctionne parfaitement bien.
Je l'utilise pour streamer Qobuz et les radios internet.
Avec mon installation (Marantz PM6006 et de vieilles enceintes Pierre Étienne Léon modifiées par les soins d'un proche connaisseur), le son est très bon, la restitution parfaite pour les enregistrements en haute définition (en tout cas me convient parfaitement !).
La machine démarre rapidement, le design s'intègre facilement dans mon installation.
À noter : la disponibilité de l'équipe d'Audiophonics qui a répondu rapidement à toutes mes nombreuses interrogations et m'a conforté dans mon achat.
À voir dans la durée, mais pour le moment, très satisfait de mon achat et de la qualité sonore offerte.

RaspTouch
Mein Traumgerät, war leider etwas enttäuscht da die MicroSD Verlängerung sehr schlecht bzw. im Gerät NICHT befestigt war, ich musste das ganze Gerät auseinander schrauben um es zu befestigen. Ja man muss auch solche Dinge ansprechen den für fast 600€ MUSS es PERFEKT sein.

Funktionieren tut es tadellos allerdings gibt es wohl keine passenden Treiber für den Max2Play Player, dort gibt es als Soundkarte leider nur den i-Sabre V3, damit funktioniert zwar der Ton aber nicht alles was im RaspTouch eingebaut ist. Leider....

Très bonne machine
Ce n'est pas du plug and play, l'installation du logiciel de lecture demande du temps et des recherches sur les blogs pour trouver les bons paramétrages. Une fois l'installation réussie, l'interface tactile est très pratique. le son est très bon, mais ne pardonne rien aux mauvais enregistrements. A recommander

Une réussite !
J’aime le look de ce petit lecteur, mais surtout j’aime le son qu’il fournit et sa capacité à lire mes fichiers sur mon NAS.
Bon, c’est livré « brut de décoffrage », sans doc ni tutoriel pour installer un logiciel de lecture, il faut farfouiller sur les forums sans être sûr de faire les bons choix de paramétrage. Mais par mail on peut contacter Audiophonics qui répond dans les 12h (merci David !) et les choses se solutionnent.
Quand tout est opérationnel c’est un régal de tout pouvoir piloter depuis cet écran incliné.

Excellente machine
Excellent rapport qualité/prix pour ce digne successeur de la regrettée Squeezebox Touch. L'installation du PiCore Player est à la portée d'un béotien en informatique qui suit le tutoriel disponible sur le site et les conseils dispensés par une équipe Audiophonics motivée et compétente. Le Logitech Media server est rendu davantage convivial encore par l'utilisation d'un écran de 7' (un regret : je n'ai pas su mettre la machine en mode veille). Quant au Dac Sabre, il permet une restitution précise et analytique, de qualité audiophile sans aucun doute.
