Abacus AroioDAC Bundle incl. Raspberry Pi and Max2Play
With this bundle Max2Play can be optimally used as a high-end audio solution. Just plug the supplied components together and enjoy the benefits of Max2Play and the Aroio DAC from Abacus. We recommend the Max2Play Aroio Bundle to all customers who want to play their digital music collection via a high-end DAC on their music system and do not want to be limited by the clock of the Raspberry Pi.
On the AroioDAC, two independent clock chips are used as master clocks, one for the 44.1kHz multiples (e.g., standard CD quality) and one for the 48kHz (e.g., 96kHz or 192kHz Hi-Res files). Due to the exact frequency accuracy and high frequency stability jitter and unwanted modulations are reduced to a minimum. During operation, a small blue LED indicates which master clock is currently active.
To avoid power-related disturbances, the three important areas of the board are fed completely independently of each other with high-precision voltage regulators from Analog Devices.
In order to guarantee the necessary current flow at any time, the circuit board is constructed as a 4-way multilayer (each with its own copper layer for ground potential and the supply lines). In addition, all areas are buffered with generous capacitors. More information about the AroioDAC can be found in our blog.
