If music be the food of love, play on. But make sure you use this super little DAC to get the best out of your Raspberry Pi audio!

This pHAT provides a super affordable high-quality DAC for your Raspberry Pi. It pumps out 24-bits at 192KHz from the Raspberry Pi's I2S interface on its 2x20 pin GPIO header.

Use pHAT DAC to build a tiny, lush-sounding streaming music device, or use it with Scroll pHAT to make a beautiful spectrum analyser!

Features

  • 24-bit audio at 192KHz
  • Line out stereo jack
  • Optional landing for dual RCA phono connector
  • PCM5102A DAC over the Raspberry Pi's I2S interface
  • pHAT DAC pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B+, 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Female header requires soldering 

Software

pHAT DAC doesn't require a Python library like most of our other HATs and pHATs, but does require configuration to work properly. We've put together a slick one-line installer to get everything set up just right. See the tutorial below for more details.

Our software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.

Notes

The kit has a 3.5mm stereo jack pre-assembled but doesn't include a dual RCA phono connector

The display can show the time in various formats, including the one from the movies of course.

  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once!

During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

    This on a PiZeroW sounds remarkably better than the audio on an RPi2s 3.5mm output.

    Both running Volumio. A very slick piece of audio player software.

    If i wasnt so far down the SONOS hardware hole, Volumio + PhatDAC would be my alternative.
