A HiFiBerry DAC installation using a linear power supply

Here comes another nice HiFiBerry DAC installation. Jens from Germany doesn’t like switching mode power supplies for audio. Therefore he created a HiFiBerry setup with a huge linear power supply. Note that the power supply needs to provide at least 5V/1A for a stable operation of the Raspberry Pi. Depending on the input voltage this means heat. He uses a large heat sink and a small ventilator to get rid of the heat.

A standalone streaming media device based on Raspberry Pi and HiFiBerry DAC

This is the most advanced HiFiBerry DAC setup we have seen so far. A German user integrated not only the Raspberry Pi and the DAC in a nice enclosure, but also a switching power supply. Power is connected using the onboard header on the HiFiBerry DAC and a USB WiFi Dongle is used for wireless connectivity.
