Looking for ultimate DAC


2016-02-04 1:01 pm
Im trying to build the ultimate DAC for raspberry pi.

Im looking at couple of chips:

ES9023 with external tcxo via I2S
ES9018 via XMOS / USB that apparently supports DSD512 PCM 384K.
AK4490EQ that uses 768kHz/32Bit

So ES9023 can be connected via I2S to raspberry. I think all others will be connected via USB/XMOS.

Any opinions ?
