IAN CANADA CONDITIONERPI Ultra Capacitor Conditioner Board for Raspberry Pi


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I was wondering if any audio PI users are using this product.

https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/raspberry-pi-and-other-sbc-accessories/ian-canada-conditionerpi-ultra-capacitor-conditioner-board-for-raspberry-pi-p-14596.html

Seems to be a very simple solder project.

I am looking to partner the Ian Canada filter with a new ifi power X supply, I just purchased.

Keen for any user feedback.

I am very interested in the Ian Canada Filter too. Looks like it just plugs into the PI board then you plug the HAT on top, so no soldering?
 

I will order to try with my Pi2Aes HAT.

You need to solder the super caps onto the board. 

They do not come with the unit, and need to be purchased as a separate item.

I think you will find the PI2aes needs 24vdc to operate.

The PI2aes also powers the RPI, via a 5vdc voltage converter on the board.

Although this can be switched to external RPI board power. 

 

I don't think this would be compatible with the PI2aes.

You would need a HAT such as the Ian Canada fifo q3/transporter or Allo signature etc.

 

I just purchased one of these:

Very worthwhile, powers my RPI4.

Yes , my bad just read the fine print. Super caps can be bought from Mouser  Australia for about $40.

 

Dont know what shipping time from France would be.

Bugger, I also have a Hifiberry  Digi + Pro HAT.

Run it with a cheap LPS, sounds great.
