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 HiFiBerry user has written a nice blog post how to build a music player based on the Raspberry Pi and the HiFiBerry DAC. Check out his page!
HiFiBerry project gallery
We received a lot of pictures of DIY HiFiBerry projects. We will show some of them here from time to time. However, there are more than we can show here. Therefore we have started a “user gallery” on our HiFiBerry website. Have a look at it!

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.
HiFiBerry DAC Retro style
Have a look at this nice setup of a Swiss HiFiBerry DAC user. He used an old amplifier and added a Raspberry Pi, the HiFiBerry DAC and a wireless stick to create a very cool streaming audio player.
