The Red is latest addition to the incredible Holo Audio offering. Not only is it a network streamer with the highly regarded I2S HDMI output, but it can also be used as a DDC (Digital To Digital Converter) that converts a digital USB input signal to I2S or SPDIF.  

Holo Audio is renown for their incredible power supply units, and they have used this knowledge to create a unit that is based on the Pi Compute Module 4 with custom Holo  Audio peripheral components that has been optimised for audio. The advantage of using the Pi4 Module is that it can be used with a lot of software and is therefore very versatile.

The Holo Audio Red supports supports Roonbridge Tidal (Connect), Qobuz, Spotify (Connect), Airplay and many more.

We are confident that the Red will be a substantial upgrade to your existing digital music streamer.

We have 1 sealed unit in stock and it is ready to ship from Cape Town.
