Compatible with the ODROID-C0/C1+/C2/C4. Not compatible with the original ODROID-C1.

The HiFi Shield provides stereo RCA connectors, a 3.5mm stereo jack (all gold-plated) and an S/PDIF optical connector to connect to external amplifiers and other audio equipment. Via TI's high-end PCM5102 DAC chip, it supports 16 to 24 bit audio formats with minimal distortion (-93dB) and ideal dynamics (100dB+), plus amazing sampling rates of 384kHz.

Using the new I2S expansion added to the ODROID-C series, we save a USB port and allow the user to select their audio playback system of choice, such as Volumio, RuneAudio, etc. for HiFi audio playback. 

  • The DAC chip uses a high-end PCM5102 chip from Burr-Brown company (now part of TI) which utilizes the I2S interface. It supports 16 to 24 bit audio formats with minimal distortion (-93dB) and ideal dynamics (100dB+), plus amazing sampling rates of 384kHz.
  • The output ports include gold-plated stereo RCA terminals, a 3.5mm audio jack and an S/PDIF connector.
  • The dedicated S/PDIF interface is newly added and supports up to 192kHz/24bit resolution via optical (Toslink) output.
  • An ultra-low noise dropout regulator is coupled with two solid capacitors for the power supply, significantly reducing power supply noise and greatly increasing the signal to noise ratio.
  • The I2S interface allows for direct decoding of the digital input to analog output using master clock synchronization.
  • The PCB surface is comprised of gold-plating on top of 2 oz. of copper, ensuring signal continuity and reducing signal reflection and refraction.


  • Stereo RCA jacks (gold-plated)
  • Stereo 3.5mm line-out audio connector
  • S/PDIF (Toslink) connector
  • PCM5102 DAC chip supports 16 to 24 bit audio formats
  • Minimal distortion (-93dB)
  • Ideal dynamics (100dB+)
  • Sampling rates of 384kHz
  • HiFi Shield Board
  • 4 x 11mm PCB spacer (Metal)
  • 8 x 10mm PCB spacer (Plastic)
  • Android not supported. Hardkernel states they have no plans to support the Android OS to enable the I2S driver for Android kernel and HAL.
  • The 7-pin map on C1+ board is reversed. Pin 3 is 5V power. The print on the PCB indicates 3V3 which is incorrect.
  • These boards use the correct 2.2uF capacitors for audio filtering.
