What Chipset does the audio adapter contain
I am looking for a specific chipset to replace my old audio adapter? The audio adapter I am looking for has a round led indicator and the other one is oval. Please let me know what you have in stock.

  • Unfortunately we don't know what chipset this audio adaptor uses. We source them from Adafruit, so if you contact them they may be able to tell you - https://www.adafruit.com/

The Raspberry Pi has an on-board audio jack, which is super handy for all kinds of sound effects and speech, just plug and go! However, for when you want better audio for music playback, a USB audio card can greatly improve the sound quality and volume. That's because the on-board audio is generated by a PWM output and is minimally filtered. Don't get us wrong, it's a great thing to have audio on board but this USB audio card will make it even better.

We like this particular dongle for not being too bulky, you can plug it in without blocking the secondary USB port. It also works great with a Raspberry Pi! We've tested it successfully with Raspbian Wheezy & Jessie, but we don't have tutorials for any other OS's.

At this time we have a tutorial for setting it up for audio output and audio line-level input.

This device also works great with Windows machines and should also function for Macs, but we are carrying it specifically for Pi usage.

Features:
  • Greatly improves sound quality and volume
  • Only takes a minute to configure
  • Wire Length: 139.7mm / 5.5"
  • Audio Card Dimensions: 43.76mm / 1.72" x 23.19mm / 0.91" x 11.97mm / 0.47"
