RaspDac Mini LCD

Kit Network Player & DAC 32bit 384kHz / DSD 128



For its third generation, the RaspDac Mini is now equipped with a color LCD screen and can now display the covers of your albums as well as the visuals of the web-radios being played. Likewise, the layout of the metadata and the reader status data becomes more readable thanks to a screen resolution that is significantly higher than in previous versions. The functionality as well as the audio performance of the kit remains unchanged.

Ideal to improve your sound system while having fun, this self-assemble kit is a very intuitive opportunity to learn the basics of audio-oriented DIY method.

The assembly involves neither welding nor special knowledge in DIY. The only tools required are a H5 hex screwdriver and a P4 Phillips screwdriver.

Once mounted, the whole device constitutes a network drive based on Raspberry PI, with all the advantages that it represents in terms of connectivity.

The digital / analog decoding is done internally by a dedicated DAC ES9038Q2M chip, one of the best component in the field of high-fidelity music. This compact model can compete with devices that are way more impressive from their size or their price.

Sabre DAC I-ES9038Q2M

Audiophonics sabre ES9038Q2M


All decoding operations are made thanks to an I-sabre card ES9038Q2M. The latter was specially developed to make the best of a SBC (Raspberry Pi).

This DAC works with its own power stage with DC DC converter and integrated linear regulators. It incorporates the latest optimizations (2020) including an anti-pop relay.

When operated in conjunction with a software solution that has an optimized audio kernel (as is it the case here), the RPI and DAC I-sabre are able to play 32bit 384kHz.

DSD files are also supported up DSD128 (DOP).

The analog output stage is based on two bipolar operational amplifiers NJM 2114 fed with 9V. A third OPA of the same type serves as a buffer. This configuration ensures optimal resolution and a very stable output signal.

Test and review by Audio Science Review

"The AUDIOPHONICS DAC I-Sabre ES9038Q2M finally brings good performance to HAT DACs. It rivals the performance of the higher priced DACs from Allo and Orchard Audio but at lower cost."
Test Qobuz
"Raspberry Pi platform combined with the right software and a nice DAC can be a potent and highly cost effective streaming solution. Stick one of these next to your hi-fi and you can play content from anywhere..."

Remote control from anywhere

interface Raspdac mini


The ES9038Q2M DAC chip offers hardware volume control function (does not damage audio resolution). This hardware volume is controlled remotely from the user interface (smartphone, tablet ....) for maximum comfort and optimal accessibility in any circumstance.

Similarly, playback options and source selection are made on smartphone / tablet (or any other connected device capable of running a web-browser).

Thanks to its software, the RaspDac mini can stream music from DLNA / AIRPLAY compatible devices.

The new infrared remote included with the RaspDacMini LCD is now the same that we use for our RaspDac EVO. It offers more option for fine control of playback and rendering.

Extensive connectivity

raspdacmini_arrière.jpg


By combining the ports of a Raspberry Pi with those of the ES9038 sabre card, the device now offers an impressive connectivity.

The Raspdac Mini has 4 USB-A ports to which the user can plug a hard disk, a USB drive or even a USB CD drive.

Of course, the device is also perfectly at-ease when it comes to play online hosted files through a wired network (RJ45) and non-wired (Wifi / Bluetooth).

The Mini RASPDAC simplifies your audio setup with an extra S / PDIF input port that can connect an extra digital source (CD player, television, gaming platform ... etc). It can thus be effectively integrated in various cases with sufficient flexibility to make all your digital devices enjoy the RaspDac efficiency.

Dimensions of raspdac mini

More compact and still as powerful


Its dimensions of 60 x 90 x 120 mm allow the RaspDAC Mini to fit easily into your audio environment, regardless of size and complexity.

All ports are on the back of the case so as not to damage the visual harmony of your audio-system with visible cables.

Once your RaspDAC is installed and operational, it is not necessary for its operation to redefine wiring or to access the micro SD card. All of its functions can be set wirelessly.

Software


Thanks to the Raspberry Pi 4, the RaspDAC Mini LCD is a real mini-computer with a high fidelity sound card. The installation of the software layer is easy (flash an SD card before inserting it in the integrated card reader).

Please note: this multiplicity of choices and options means that the software layer (essential for playing audio) is not included in the RaspDac Mini kit. You will have to choose a solution and install it.

Installation of a software solution :


You will find on this page all the software images to proceed to the installation by yourself. It is also possible to install DietPi via this approach.

The images to be installed are made available to you free of charge with no time limit.

Sober and comprehensive display


The front screen is now a color LCD screen with a resolution of 320x240px. The latter is protected by a transparent acrylic surface making it invisible when the device is not switched on.

When the RaspDAC mini LCD is active, the screen displays all the information necessary to locate in the music in addition to the album cover.

Some information about the start-up....

  • The Micro SD card must be removed from its adapter and then inserted into the reader, taking care to follow the direction, without forcing it.
  • Once the RaspDAC Mini is powered on, a more or less long delay (a few tens of seconds) is required before a display appears on the screen.
  • To control the RaspDAC it is necessary for you to have a computer, a telephone or a tablet also connected to your local network.
  • To access the Volumio web application, simply enter the address shown on the RaspDAC display on your control device (computer, smartphone, tablet).
  • To use the Coaxial input, press the "Input" button on the remote control so that "SPDIF" appears on the display.

Bon produit si on est patient et pugnace
Le colis était bien emballé 2 vis n’étaient pas à la bonne taille et un module de carte SD supplémentaire qui n'a pas son utilité (que je vais renvoyer) Le montage est a la portée de n'importe qui c'est vraiment bien fait. J'avais un PI3 sous la main que je voulais utiliser avec ce Mini Dac. Après moult échange d'ailleurs très pros et concis avec le sav on a réussi à tout faire fonctionner sauf la télécommande qui faut avouer, n'apporte pas grand chose passé 3m de distance. Si d'aventure vous vous lancez dans montage, le résultat est vraiment bluffant le petit écran vous donne les image des Jaquettes et Spotyfy avec Volumio fonctionne parfaitement vraiment un très bon Dac Merci le SAV de m'avoir soutenu dans mon challenge. Un point que je trouve un peu léger c'est l’interrupteur style lampe de chevet sur le fil d'alimentation. Je ne mets que 3 étoiles a cause des sueurs froide et heure perdues a le faire chanter

High end device for low budget
This is really a great device with high-end sound for little money. Easy to assemble for anyone. Unfortunately four of the screws provided were not the right size, so I had to use my own. Therefore a star deduction. Conclusion: Absolutely recommended! Excellent!

Compact and easy to use system. I only want to play Tidal so this is a great solution (I use VolumeIO). Sound quality is very good considering the size. I use the Audiophonics power supply too which makes a big difference

Good sound but ..
Easy to construct. Only the Volumio OS would boot for me. Spurious click noises at selection end, but sound otherwise good. Slow to boot and often UPnP interface fails to appear, requiring multiple re-boots. Best left permanently on. Software functionality lets down the good hardware.
