MAMBOBERRY LS DAC+ on Volumio Shop

A distinctive design choice, for an intriguing new I2S DAC


We’ve promised that Volumio Shop will be the place where curious audiophiles could find the latest and finest products from independent manufacturers, and with today’s addition we’re definetely pursuing that goal. The Mamboberry LS DAC + is definetely a must-have for discerning audiophiles, let’s see why:

First, it can be fed with an external 5V Power Supply, and we all know how critical a good power supply is for sound quality. Pair this beauty with a good PSU like the Ifi iPower and you’ve done all the clever.

Then, it features the Sabre ESS 9023 which is just an amazing DAC, with the highest performance\cost ratio ever… We love its detailed yet pleasant signature, and the implementation on this DAC is indeed very good. Which brings us to third point.

The Mamboberry is made with carefully selected components, and yes they make a difference. Nichicon audio series main filter caps and Susumu low noise resistors, just to name a pair.

To sum it up:

The Mamboberry LS DAC+ is one of the finest implementation of the beloved ESS 9023 DAC, with a a very sophisticated power supply, made with selected high quality components.

A Specific design choice

There’s no doubt that every product is shaped as a consequence of its designer’s philosophy, belief and priorities. Here on Volumio Shop we would like to show a bit of this “behind the curtains” of what’s going on on the audiophile scene, and meet together its fautors. So let’s get to know the heart and souls behind this DAC: Collybia Team, with their own words.

Collybia Team Audio was founded in 2015 by a team of audiophiles including an experienced engineer, devoted to design and build user-friendly high-end music reproduction products at an affordable price. Music is what matters most at Collybia and we like to turning sound into an experience.


Our approach is to connect the listener with the experience of his and her favorite music. We use technology, our experience as audiophiles, our shared passion for music, and our fair share of hard work, to develop products which help create excitement and inspire emotions in the listener: create a total musical experience.
And to make it all as accessible as we possibly can: affordable and user-friendly.
Mamboberry DAC series are the most vivid example of our approach.

With MamboberryHiFi DAC+ we start the revolution at the DAC-HAT’s market, for Raspberry Pi boards with our special approach to implement, in a unified product (DAC), a very sophisticated power supply.
We continue with Mamboberry LS DAC+ this revolutionary mission by selecting high quality parts for the board and focusing on eliminating the “noise” at the power rail.
The feedbacks are awesome and overwhelming from the Audio community in the planet and especially from diyaudio community and Professional Audio reviewers.
We like to thank you all and we will continue to produce affordable high quality audio products for all.

Because Music is a feeling and at Collybia Team we like to share it with everyone!


And stay tuned, great times are about to come with lots of new additions and surprises!


About Michelangelo Guarise

Passionate. Heretical. Deeply in love with Technology and Music. I live in Florence, Italy where I teach Interaction Design and Marketing. I'm Volumio's founder and CEO, and I love every second of this great adventure. My audio gear is some strange mix of valve and digital amplifiers, all self built in some cold winter sleepless nights. And I just can't turn that volume knob down.
