Geekworm DACPi Audio Player Kit for Raspberry Pi 4

by Cindy Ding on June 21, 2021

Geekworm DACPi is a desktop ultra-thin DAC kit based on the latest raspberry pi 4;

We know that there are many DAC expansion boards released on the market, but they have a common shortcoming that they are too thick. We redesigned the DAC expansion board (X950) and tried our best to make this DAC the thinnest and matched a NUC style aluminum alloy shell, the final thickness of DACPi is only 31mm, I hope you can like it.


DACPi adopts modular design, it composed of three parts: X950 DAC Shield, cooling system (P165-B embedded heatsink), and a NUC style aluminum case;Just simply assemble them with the Raspberry Pi 4 motherboard.


X950 shield can turn your Raspberry pi 4 into a ready-to-play High Resolution Network Music Player.



The DACPi shell is made of all aluminum alloy, CNC processing method, surface anodizing treatment.

For the cooling solution, considering that the cooling fan will interfere with the sound quality, we abandoned the X823-A3 active cooling solution in NASPi, and we only use P165-B to dissipate heat, which can provide enough heat dissipation if there is no overclocking, but P165-B may be a slight impact on WIFI. You can remove the heatsink also.


Power Supply Requirement:
Power supply: 5Vdc +/-5% , ≥3A (Via Type-C port of Raspberry pi 4)
(Strongly recommended to use Raspberry Pi Foundation official 5V 3A type-C power adapter.
