Quick start

Board Pinout diagram


wisdPi HiFi DAC has two line out connector. A double phono/RCA connector, normally red and white in colour, and a 3.5mm Line out Socket.

This output is a variable analogue signal (0-2V RMS) and can connect to your existing hi-fi (pre-amp or amplifier), or can be used to drive active speakers which have their own amplifier built in.

Phono (RCA)

  • White:LEFT audio

  • Red:RIGHT audio

3.5mm Line out Socket
