Mamboberry LS DAC+ (192kHz/24bit)

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 5 customer ratings
(6 customer reviews)


We achieved to keep the high audio quality from Mamboberry HiFi DAC+ and give a more affordable price to this DAC.
Yes, we have accomplished it. We want to bring the best audio quality, to every house. To every music lover out there.

You ask for it. We made it a reality!!

  • XPresso clock
  • Nichicon capacitors
  • Sabre 9023p DAC chip

5V external power supply barrel connector(we suggest a Linear power supply of course).

Extra 40pin connector(ready) for easy mounting on Mambo Media Player or anything else that needs it!

2-years Guarantee, as applied to all products!

PS. No need for an extra power supply. You can power it up through Raspberry Pi USB power supply(for ultimate sound quality we suggest an ext. 5V Linear power supply. Not included). Look also to Mambo power supply page.

Replaced by Mamboberry HD DAC+


Mamboberry LS DAC+


From the audio Team that brought the high audio quality with sophisticated external power supply designing, to the Raspberry Pi audio community.

Based on the famous Mamboberry Design.

High quality electronic parts from the best International brands(Sabre,Nichicon,Xpresso, etc).

(192kHz/24bit) and capable of 352kHz playback for high resolution audio, on supported platforms(Moode).

We continue our musical “journey” with Mamboberry LS DAC+. Upgrade your Raspberry Pi audio with High Quality 384kHz/32 bit audio resolution.

Our new approach is revolutionary at the audio market for Raspberry Pi – HiFi audio field! We put extra high quality resistors and we achieve to lower the noise to power rail.

We are very happy for our new audio product and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

After the reviews we have and the feedback from our customers, we can say for sure….LS DAC+ is the best hat-dac for Raspberry Pi.

We do not believe in “exotic” features in dac. We do not believe that only a dac chip will make the “difference” in sound spectrum.

We believe in designing of the board. We believe in our ears and to the years of acoustic experience for sound development and evolution at sound devices.

20 years…We can’t be wrong! ūüôā

Many thanks to all of our customers and reviewers for such an overwhelming positive comments and reviews! Thank you ūüôā

Be sure we will surprise you more, in the near future.

    I received the Mamboberry LS this week and have spent the weekend thus far with a huge smile on my face

    I’ve tried many Pi DAC combination but this is the winner for sure

    Partnered with a Pi3 and being driven by a dedicated linear power supply directly through the LS and the results are excellent

    Very musical and open. The sound is rich and full and I’m very very pleased

    I’d highly recommend, thanks much to the Collybia Team for the speedy service and this lovely little DAC

    Thanks specifically to Emilios for responding so fast to my emails – brilliant!

    Good work. Thank you! I now have the Mamboberry LS DAC+ for three month and i’m really, really satisfied. i topped the good experience it with an additional reclocker. please go on guys. PS: missing the mushroom logo on your site ūüėČ

    If you watch a 4K TV for awhile and then go back to a 1080p TV you will be shocked that you never noticed how crummy the 1080p TV looks in comparison. That is the best analogy I can give for listening to the Mamboberry LS+ and then going back to a HiFi Berry+. The Mamboberry sounds so much clearer and more musical. The HiFi Berry sounded fine before I heard the Mamboberry LS+. Now I feel like “what was I thinking?”

    Don’t even bother powering with a “wall wart”. Unlistenable in my opinion. A 5V 3A linear power supply connected to the Mamboberry and powering the RP3is the only way to go. Powering the PI and DAC separately didn’t seem to make any difference.

    Would this DAC benefit from a reclocker board? Doesn’t the Expresso clock already offer similar benefits?

    • admin


      Expresso clock is a HQ clock and well-known brand to audio community in many projects. We choose it for its amazing performance in the price range.
      Raspberry Pi has an average clock and with the help of the reclocker you can “optimize” the clock signal as much as a good reclocker is capable of…

      We suggest to everyone from this post, that if you have the audio system which is capable to produce a HQ sound then try the reclocker thing.

      Every DAC will benefit from a good clock signal. But it is on the audio setup its user has in his/her home to reproduce it.

      Thank you for your interest.

      Kind regards,

      Collybia Team.

      Xpresso clock runs at 100 MHz?
      I thought that the master clock must be a multiple of the bit clock.

      • admin


        XpreSso clock runs at 50mHz. In general terms, dac clock must be equal or in higher values, than the maximum frequencies it supports.

        50mHz is the optimal value to support frequencies of 44.1kHz and 48kHz in a dac with one clock, from our experience.

        Kind regards,

        Collybia Team.

    Tried several different DAC’s but this one is by far the best I heard so far (together with reclocker and a separate power supply). I was slightly disappointed by the other DAC’s I tried, some were missing in dynamics and detail, or sounded outright metallic. This setup however beats a lot of expensive gear and has the flexibility of open source. Great work.

    I bough the Mamboberry LS DAC+ from Collybia . The 1st one that I recieved is falty .Then the Collybia team replaced the new one for me . When I recived the new dac, I assembled with the Rasberrt pi3 , the Kali .I installed the Volumio and swich on the system , it working. The sound was not good after installed. You must have to burn the DAC nearly 100 hours. After pass 100 hour, The sound is amazing. Thank you again for Collybia , incredible team , good service mind .
