Starting our public Amp3 beta test
As you might have noticed already, the Amp2 is barely available today. Due to the challenging situation on the chip market we’re not able to manufacture it today. However, there’s an alternative now: The new Amp3. It uses a completely new design.
One major advantage of the Amp3 is the DSP connector. As with the DAC2 Pro, Digi2 Pro and Amp100, you can now add our DSP add-on also to the Amp3 and use it to run sound optimisations independent from the player software. With HiFiBerryOS, we also offer automatic room equalisation.
We have done intense internal tests and we’re very happy with the performance of this new amplifier board. However, before we’ll be offering this to a broad range of customers, we would like to collect a bit more user feedback. Our public beta test is open to all users. We offer a 40% discount on the Amp3 during this beta test. To get the discount, just use the discount code “amp3beta” on checkout. The beta test devices still get the full 2 year warranty and as with all other HiFiBerry sound cards, we offer our 30-days money-back-guarantee.
Please also note that there is still work on the Amp3 drivers. While it will work with Raspberry Pi OS, we strongly recommend to use HiFiBerryOS during this beta test.
