(April 10, 2018 – Succasunna, New Jersey) Orchard Audio, LLC (www.orchardaudio.com) is proud to announce the launch of the second product in the company’s emerging line of high performance audio equipment: ApplePi DAC. This newly-designed DAC is the most advanced and highest performance sound card hat available for the Raspberry Pi.
Many months of development and testing have ensured the ApplePi DAC’s unparalleled performance among its competitors. Using only the highest quality and performance components available along with the latest packaging technologies, the ApplePi DAC was designed from the ground up to offer commanding performance. Performance has been verified on a state of the art audio analyzer from Audio Precision, a recognized leader in audio testing and standards. The product has been entirely designed and manufactured in the United States.
The driving goal behind ApplePi DAC’s creation was to provide exceptional audio quality at a price point that is currently not available in the market, making high performance audio equipment attainable to a wider range of consumers. For less than $250 USD for both the ApplePi DAC and the Raspberry Pi, users can achieve performance currently only available starting at $750 USD. In addition, ApplePi DAC eliminates the need for pre-amplifiers, saving additional money.
With future projects already in the pipeline, Orchard Audio is poised to shake up the audio marketplace and welcome new and returning audiophiles into the market. According to Orchard Audio President Leo Ayzenshtat, “Anyone can notice the difference in quality, but not everyone will appreciate it. We design our products for those who appreciate excellence in their listening experience.”
Currently the ApplePi DAC is only available through Kickstarter here: http://goo.gl/UZfimA
