Pi-AMP+

NO SOLDERING REQUIRED, simply “FIT AND ENJOY.”

Designed to deliver the best audio performance from the Raspberry Pi B+/RPi2, fit within the Pi’s overall form factor above the Pi-DAC+.

We have used the latest Texas Instruments ClassD amplifier chipset (TPA3118) to deliver awesome performance. As with our other products you can be assured that the Linux driver support is already built-in to Raspbian Linux and supported by the many software audio packages already on the market. RuneAudio / Volumio / MoodeAudio / PiCorePlayer / PiMusicBox / OpenELEC / Max2play and others. The IQaudIO Pi-AMP+ fits on top of the Pi-DAC+ and supports 24-bit / 192kHz file formats but is equally at home with lower quality MP3s bringing your music alive sonically.

Please note that The Pi-AMP+ uses GPIO22 as amp-mute and when powered on is in mute state, examples are in the user docs and many software releases already support the Pi-AMP+.

The IQaudIO Pi-AMP+ connects easily to the Pi-DAC+ and provides up to 2 x 35W stereo output to speakers from a 15-19v supply.

The IQaudIO Pi-AMP+ Features:

  • Full-HD audio – up to 24-bit/192kHz playback
  • Up to 2x35w of crystal clear amplification
  • No soldering required
  • Powers the Raspberry Pi and Pi-DAC+ from the Pi-AMP+ power input
  • Linux driver support already delivered within Raspbian
  • AMP can be enabled / disabled via Raspberry Pi’s GPIO22
  • Advanced ESD protection
  • Fully built and tested Raspberry Pi accessory
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK

The IQaudIO Pi-AMP+ is suitable for the latest Raspberry Pi B+ AND RPi2, it is not compatible with much older Raspberry Pi A and B Models.

The Pi-AMP+ is supplied with all mounting hardware and there is a specific Pi-CASE+ to be used with the Pi, Pi-DAC+ and Pi-AMP+ combination. If you intend to mount your Pi / Pi-DAC+ / Pi-AMP+ on the official 7" screen then you'll need to also buy the extra spacer pack. 

NOTE: The Pi-AMP+ requires an external power supply / brick, and when powered the Pi-AMP+ provides power to your Raspberry Pi and Pi-DAC+ in parallel. We recommend the XP Power VEF50US15 (for 2x20w) and VEF65US19 (for 2x35w).

THIS IS AN ADD-ON BOARD FOR THE PI-DAC+, IT CANNOT BE USED WITHOUT A PI-DAC+

It works!

I bought it just to test. My surprise: I wasn't able to distinguish sound of tandem Pi-AMP+ PI-DAC+ and Marantz PM6005 (amp) + Pioneer N-P01 (streamer). Got rid Marantz and Pioneer out of my shelf ;) Now I have a lot of free space...

Totally worth the spent money, i using system in my build which consist of two passive speakers and amplifier (which powers them), recently that system start to make wheeze (and i did not knew that this was because amplifier), so i decided to give a try Pi-AMP+ (as i already have Pi-Dac+). When i connected all, did setup, and turn on the music - effect was WOW, i did not even know that their generic amp was so bad, wheeze are gone and speakers give better sound. So my speakers now have second life.
HIGHLY Recommend !!!

Let it be heard!

Recently decided to move my pi with a dac+ from the livingroom to my bedroom but needed an amp, was going to go with an external device but this really puts out the power! Well more than needed to fill my room with amazing clarity sound! Totally glad I bought this instead! More affordable and fit's right on top of the dac+ keeping a nice compact footprint! Can't speak enough to how nice these pair together with the rotary encoder as well!
