My homemade raspberry pi streamer

and the linear power supply for what is used ? Thx

the audiophonics power module provides an output of 5 volts the linear power Module A-19 2x3-20V LT1083 provides 8 volts dc for the audiophonics power module.

the audiophonics power module must be supplied with a minimum of 7 volts dc and a maximum of 12 volts dc, if properly cooled.
you could also just use the linear power Module A-19 2x3-20V LT1083 and set it to 5 volts for the input of the PurePi.
I do give a tip, use a toroidal or blok transformer with 8 volt ac output to the linear power Module A-19 2x3-20V LT1083, at a higher ac voltage it gets much too hot.

Thanks ,
And this one Linear Power supply Module regulated DC +/- LM317T / LM337 1.25V / 18V 0.5A - Audiophonics
Is for the amplifier ?

I use this for the Philips 1543 NOS dac, but it is not suitable for raspberry pi or PurePI, it has too little ampere.

Thanks , now it is clear :slight_smile: that small amp confuses me …

that was the same idea what i had 0.5 amp is nearly nothing… ( the same as 1 usb port )

Can I use the Module A-19 2x3-20V LT1083 to power the rpi ? Without the power management module and pure pi?

yes, it is practically nothing, but sufficient to control the Philips NOS DAC.

it now sounds beautiful with the ian Canada Products in between… clearly gives an improvement for such an old dac Chip.

philips had nice dacs in the past. more rich sound.

make sure you use a transformer that has no more than 9 volts ac.

i guess because of overheating?

i once built a streamer for my brother in law and used the same power supply for the raspberry pi 4 and it still works fine.
make sure you use a transformer that has no more than 9 volts ac.

@Lintbf @dvo another project is already in the pipeline. now for a good friend of mine.

products are already in.
there will also be a 7.9-inch touchscreen.

your getting better every time :slight_smile: what is the price of building this?

all products added together more than € 700 euros, including cabinet.

also have a custom toroidal transformer made.

that is twice the price we had in the old builds in the past :stuck_out_tongue:

indeed, since the emergence of raspberry, all manufacturers smell money :money_mouth_face:

the most expensive in this Build is the ian Canada reclocker.

we are going to use this dac chip.

damn those boards are only the price of our old builds, hope it sounds pretty well.

Yup too high ac input voltage the power gets too hot. hence max 9 volts ac.

indeed the old Philips dac chip sound pleasant and warm.


Those internal DACs , are better then for example a topping e30 ? Or you can not see the difference
I want to build another streamer with 7.9 inch screen , internal power supply for roi4 , but I am not sure about the dac , to use an external one or an internal like yours … also I am using an external integrated amplifier …

yes what is better, a topping is technically better (lower noise floor) than for example the i2s philips dac that I have now.

in the past i have had a lot of dacs from audio gd to squeezebox, ess sabre, usb dacs but i always come back to i2s short berbinding or hat dac.
each dac chip has its own sound and a reasonably good linear power supply also makes a lot of difference.

so it’s just what you like in a certain sound and of course with an external ready-made dac you don’t have a hassle with building all this.

for example I once adapted a squeezebox duet according to lampizator and this brought a considerable improvement, this was a pretty old streamer but it improved considerably in sound.

@Lintbf personally I always like to tweak, for example I had an old defective harman kardon surround receiver and I took out the standby board and built in the volumio streamer, this saves an extra switch and has a two-color LED on the front (orange off and green on)
the next step is to switch the board on and off via a remote control.
