- Built in High quality Class-D stereo audio amplifier (TI TPA3118D2)
- Up to 2×30W Into a 8-Ω BTL Load at 24Vdc
- Capable of driving 4 Ohm speakers (also works with higher impedance speakers)
- Built in high quality audio headphone amplifier (TI TPA6133A)
- Uses the Texas Instruments ultra-low-noise voltage regulator (output noise< 10μVRMS)
- Uses the Texas Instruments high efficiency step-Down DC converter (up to 95%)
- 6V~26Vdc converted to 5.1V, 3A to power the Raspberry Pi
- Uses the genuine ALPS RK163 series potentiometer for smooth volume adjustment
- Built in high quality IR sensor (Vishay -the world's leading supplier of infrared receivers)
- Onboard RCA connectors

Matching Metal Case for X400 V3.0
There are two types of housings, one for X400 and PI 3B(name it X400-C3) and the other for X400 and PI 4B(name it X400-C4).
Note: Please remove the jumper cap on the PWR (on the X400 board beside the 3.5mm jack headphone), or the power switch will not work normally. Please refer to FAQ 3.
|For use with||X400 V3.0 and Raspberry Pi 3B+/3B||X400 V3.0 and Raspberry Pi 4 Model B|

DAC Model： Please choose ST400 or IQAUIDO-dac
Q1. Why my headphone left channel has no sound?
Customer Feedback: I am having a problem with the headphone left channel. The sound is out of phase; the voice of the signer is almost missing on the left channel when I am using headphones.
Answer: If you happen to meet this problem, please just contact us by email and attach order number, and we will help you send a headphone cable to solve this problem.
Q2. Can X400 v3.0 board can be used on Raspberry Pi Zero W or Raspberry Pi Zero?
Answer: Theoretically speaking it will be compatible, but not actually it is tested, so we can not confirm.
Q3. Why the power switch isn't working? The LED is always green but doesn't function. When I put the power on, the Raspberry Pi is booting regardless of whether the button is on or off.
Answer: There is a jumper cap on the PWR (on the X400 board beside the 3.5mm jack headphone), when using an external power switch to control power on/off, please remove the jumper cap. Please refer to the following picture.
Q4. Which DAC model do I set with piCoreplayer?
Plase choose the iqaudio-DAC .
Q5.Can I have my phone charging at the same time as I have it attached to the rca playing music, or will that fry the system?
Please do not use X400 or rasdpberry pi to charge your phone, it is not support to charge the phone.
Q6. Does the X400 V3.0 support to use with the X862?
Yes, it is OK but note the power supply must only connected to X400.
Q7: When I plug in headphones to the 3.5mm jack on the DAC they work fine but the speakers also stay on as well. How would I make just the headphones work when they are plugged in & the speakers would be off?
Please move the jumper cap on MUTE to AMP to solve the issue.
