NanoSound Amp10 - The best and most powerful amp by Nanomesher
Amp10 is the successor of high acclaimed NanoSound Amp^2 - Digital and Headphone Amp for NanoSound DAC
Our mission is simple: build the best sounding music system with a small footprint
Combining Raspberry Pi, NanoSound DACs and Amp10, the music system has all the
benefits of component HiFi system but we have managed to design and fit in all in the foot print of a credit size computer - Raspberry pi. Like component Hi-Fi System, NanoSound music system is both software and hardware upgradable.
Clean power supply is the key to great sound. The NanoSound system has all the benefits of component Hi-Fi in a small footprint by having the DAC and Amp10 are independently regulated with two ultra low drop out linear regulators
In designing the new Amp10, we have made no compromise in using high quality components, that includes:
Onboard Ultra Low Drop Out Linear Regulator - This provides the cleanest power going into the amplifier.
Powerful 10W x 2 amplifier which is capable of driving large bookshelf speakers (we used 5inch woofer in our demo system with great results)
2oz cooper PCB for better thermal performance and signal paths
Audiophile quality components from world acclaimed Yamaha, Nichicon and WIMA
Fits your existing NanoSound DAC / DAC 2 Case perfectly
Hi-Fi Electronics components
Max output: 10W x 2ch at 8Ohm
S/N ratio: 103db
THD+N 0.02% at 8Ohm
Class AB headphone Amplifier
Max output: 50mW x 2ch at 32Ohm
THD+N: 0.01% at 32Ohm
S/N ratio: 95dB at 32Ohm
12V DC input (Min, 2A). 4 x 1.7mm sized adaptor
Power Configuration 1 - Shared power between DAC and Pi
Power Configuration 2 - Independent power between DAC and Pi
(A) Clean Power
Clean power supply is the key to great sound. The NanoSound system has all the benefits of component Hi-Fi in a small footprint by having the DAC and Amp10 are
independently regulated with two ultra low drop out
(B) Dedicated and independent clock signal
2 x ultra precise crystal acting as master clock for lower jitter and better DSD performance. They provides very accurate timing for 44.1khz and 48khz respectively, resulting in less
better sound quality.
(C) Pre-out via Pure cooper RCA Socket
High quality pre-out from NanoSound DAC 2 directly to your external amplifier.
(D) Independent DAC and Raspberry Pi power
The new music system supports two different power configurations. In both cases, DAC and Amp10 are
independently regulated with 2 ultra low drop out linear regulators
Power Config 1 - 12V input to Amp10. 5V input to DAC and Pi.
Power Config 2 - 12V input to Amp10. 5V input to Pi. 5V input to DAC.
