Buy DAC Jack

Tue Oct 28, 2014 4:51 pm

Hi !

I would buy this card http://www.audiophonics.fr/audiophonics ... -8396.html but I ask myself a question, is that the jack raspberry through the DAC with a better quality? or the sound will remain the same for the jack ?

Thinks a lot ! :D

No idea how you want to connect a audio jack and the DAC, but Raspberry PI cannot deliver a master clock.
This DAC needs MCLK signal to work.

EDIT:
I was wrong. DAC works in asynchronous mode. No need to connect MCLK signal.

Ok thank you for the answer. If I understand, my card uses MCLK , so I can only use the RCA . It's impossible to use the original jack with the DAC ?

for 10 or so euros more consider the IQaudIO pi-DAC. It's designed for the Pi and has some great feedback.

That dac should work as it clearly has a 50MHz oscillator on board.

I have a similar card and it's working fine for me.
