IQaudio DAC Pro Sound Card for Raspberry Pi
The IQaudio DAC Pro Sound Card for Raspberry is compatible with Raspberry Pi 4B, Raspberry Pi 3B, and other boards with 40-PIN GPIO pinout similar to Raspberry Pi.
Improved Output and Signal-to-Noise Ratio
The output connector support and audio input format support are the same as the IQaudio DAC+. However, the IQaudio DAC PRO comes with the Texas Instruments PCM5242 DAC. This DAC produces an even higher signal-to-noise ratio. This sound card has been designed for better noise immunity and improved audio playback quality. It supports up to 192 kHz 24-bit depth full HD audio.
The IQaudio DAC Pro for Raspberry Pi supports differential/balanced out in parallel to RCA/Phono live-level output. The board has a dedicated headphone amplifier. The DAC Pro does not need an external power adapter since it receives power from the connected Raspberry Pi board.
