TeraDak External Power Question


I have just got a TeraDak ES9023 from eBay. (Looks like an AUDIOPHONICS I-Sabre DAC ES9023 Raspberry Pi A+ B+ 2.0 / I2S)

I’m new to the whole Raspberry Pi DAC scene, and was wondering if anyone else has the same or similar DAC.

It has external 5V input and was wondering if it will power itself from the Raspberry Pi or if the external power is required.
I don’t want to plug in both and do damage.


How many pins does it have?

Hi Rob,

This is a chinese knockoff of this one :

No need to power it, it will be feeded trough the GPIO PINS
