As a Hi-Fi sound enthusiast, I can’t get enough of products that promise high fidelity of sound reproduction at home. The only issue is that it usually is not as effective as they say it will be.
The PecanPi® USB, however, delivers on its promise of giving you big sound that will rock the house.
PecanPi® lets you connect with the sound coming from your tablet, phone, or computer via a wireless connection which is pretty neat. It also has an integrated headphone amplifier that offers a sound performance infinitely better than if it were coming out of any of those devices, or at least if it were plugged through a headphone jack. Don’t worry about cables though; The package includes a set of converter cables that lets you connect your headphone to its RCA ports. It uses twin Burr-Brown DACs to cancel out white noise and give you the best sound possible.
As a longtime hater of the compression that MP3 files add to music, PecanPi has gotten rid of that problem and allowed me to get the best and most desirable sound even when using files that are loaded with compression.
With a high-quality download, it sounds better than vinyl even. I give this a 5/5 because I never would have expected such great sound out of something that appears to be so simple, but is far from it.
