Designed to deliver the best audio performance from the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/RPi2/3, fit within the Pi’s form factor and provide additional access to several of the Pi’s 40way I/O signals allowing easy addition of IR sensors, Rotary Encoder or i2c devices (such as OLED screens) etc.

The Pi-DigiAMP+ takes everything we’ve learned from the previous Pi-AMP+ and Pi-DAC+ combination, shrinks it down and reduced the overall system cost by around £25!

We have used the latest Texas Instruments chipset (TAS5756m) to deliver awesome performance from a single HAT board. As with our other products you can be assured that the Linux driver support is already built-in to Raspbian Linux (using the same device drivers as the Pi-DAC+) and supported by the many software audio packages already on the market. RuneAudio / Volumio / Moode / PiCorePlayer / PiMusicBox / OpenELEC and others. The IQaudIO Pi-DigiAMP+ easily 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-DigiAMP+ 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+ in the same way.

The IQaudIO Pi-DigiAMP+ connects easily to the Raspberry Pi and provides up to 2 x 35W stereo output to speakers.

The IQaudIO Pi-DigiAMP+ Features:

  • HAT compliant accessory; EEPROM, mounting holes
  • Full-HD audio – up to 24-bit/192kHz playback
  • Up to 2x35w of crystal clear amplification
  • No soldering required to your Raspberry Pi
  • Integrated hardware volume control (via ALSA)
  • Powers the Raspberry Pi from the Pi-DigiAMP+ power input
  • Linux driver support already delivered within Raspbian
  • AMP can be enabled / disabled via Raspberry Pi’s GPIO22
  • Advanced ESD protection
  • Uses the digital I2S audio signals to reduce CPU load over USB audio solutions
  • Fully built and tested Raspberry Pi accessory
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK

The IQaudIO Pi-DigiAMP+ is suitable for the latest Raspbery Pi A+/B+, RPi2 AND RPi3 it is not compatible with much older Raspberry Pi A and B Models.

The Pi-DigiAMP+ is supplied with all mounting hardware and the Pi-CASE+ now comes with an extra side panel allowing it to be used with the Pi-DigiAMP+ too. If you intend to mount your Pi / Pi-DigiAMP+ on the official 7" screen then you'll need to also buy the extra spacer pack. 

NOTE: The Pi-DigiAMP+ requires an external power supply / brick, and when powered the Pi-DigiAMP+ provides power to your Raspberry Pi in parallel. We recommend the XP Power 19v supply (for 2x35w).



Awesome little bit of kit!

I have two of the Pi-DAC+ which I have coupled with Max2Play and Squeezelite to create a multiroom streaming audio setup using Raspberry pi2's. I am very happy with the result and use iPeng to control the setup.

Recently I moved my old Bose wave radio out of the office and wanted to replace it with another streaming unit - however I have no amp in the office so I needed a self contained solution. I purchased the Pi-DigiAMP+ and have to say I am once again blown away by the quality these little boards can put out. It is quite happily driving a set of Monitor Audio BR2's. I have moved the jumper to 26dB to gain a bit more volume but will ultimately mate this to a secondhand Acoustimass 5 system as space is a bit of a premium. Very impressed once again - nice one!

I fitted the rotary encoder volume to the case for a manual volume override. Very smart and stylish and all self contained - what's not to like?

Ps - moving the gain jumper resulted in more volume and I can't hear the reduction in sound quality that apparently results...


Genuine high fidelity audio

I am by no means a "techie" but I wanted a low-cost streamer, DAC and amp for my office. I looked at various "big name" options as well as some of the "giant-killer" budget DACs and T-amps etc, but this ticked all the boxes.

Hooking it up was child's play, Gordon from IQaudio was very supportive and the sound is absolutely fantastic - it drives my Tannoy DC4s with 89dB sensitivity easily and Moode is pre-configured to work (auto unmute etc). The sound is absolutely first rate - my main hi fi rig is many, many times more expensive but the IQaudio Pi-DigiAMP+ has me wondering whether I should keep it! Both Gordon and his products are highly recommended.

Great addition to my audio pi family!

The Digi-Amp works brilliantly and exactly as advertised. I had some difficulty getting the GPIO to work as I wanted, but using the images IQaudio make available resolved this:). I've settled on Moode (which I use also on my Pi-Dac+ with my main system), but it worked just as well with Volumio and Rune.

If you have concerns the volume may be a little low, don't This drives my older B&W686 very well, and simply belts music out from the more sensitive Klipsch RP-260Fs. Great fun:)
