Pi-AMP+ add on for the popular IQaudIO.com Pi-DAC+
The first Full-HD audio quality amplifier for the Raspberry Pi B+, designed and made by audio experts.
The IQaudIO Pi-AMP+ is an add on board for the IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ HAT Audio card for the Raspberry Pi. It delivers outstanding sonic performance and full-HD (24/192) audio capability.
NO SOLDERING REQUIRED, simply “FIT AND ENJOY.” If you have a recent Pi-DAC+ then just plug on top, fit the supplied spacers and attach speakers to benefit from great sounding room filling music. For those with older Pi-DAC+, you’ll need to fit the 2x5 pin header to the Pi-DAC+ (a 5minute job) before being able to enjoy this experience.
Designed to deliver the best audio performance from the Raspberry Pi B+, fit within the B+'s form factor.
The Pi-AMP+ will mute if the Pi-DAC’s headphone socket is used and benefits from standard screw terminals for easy speaker cable connection.
The Pi-AMP+’s mounting holes are aligned to those of the Pi-DAC+ and of the Raspberry Pi B+'s, delivers a rock solid pairing with no concern of the audio cards becoming disconnected from the Raspberry Pi during long term use.
Please note that The Pi-DAC+ uses GPIO22 as amp-mute and when powered on is in mute state. The mute functionality can be bypassed using a simple 2pin header jumper and in this state NO Linux software changes are required, any software which works with the Pi-DAC+ will work with the Pi-AMP+.
NOTE: The Pi-AMP must be powered from an external supply. We recommend the XP Power VEH60US15 (15v, 4amp), we can supply this too - XP Power VEH60US15
