  • BrandPimoroni

Description

You could use Pirate Audio Headphone Amp to build a tidy, pocket-sized player for local audio files (MP3, FLAC, etc) or for streaming music from online services like Spotify. To help get you started, Pimoroni has built plugins for Mopidy that will let you display gorgeous album art, play/pause your tracks and adjust the volume. The DAC and headphone amp will give you crisp digital amplified audio through your wired headphones.

Pirate Audio is a range of all-in-one audio boards for Raspberry Pi, with high-quality digital audio, beautifully-crisp IPS displays for album art, tactile buttons for playback control, and a custom Pirate Audio software and installer to make setting it all up a breeze.
