The HiFiBerry Amp+ is a high-quality, highly efficient Class-D power amplifier for the Raspberry Pi. Mount it onto the Raspberry Pi and you have a stereo audio system. You only have to connect your loudspeakers. It’s the ideal building block for multi-room audio installations.
Up to 25W output power
Capable of driving 4 Ohm speakers (also works with higher impedance speakers)
Fully controllable from the Raspberry Pi
44.1kHz and 48kHz sample rates
Digital-analog conversion included—no need for external DACs or sound cards
Fully digital sound path for optimal audio performance
Connects directly to the Raspberry Pi—no additional cables needed
Only one 12-18V external power supply needed for both AMP and the Raspberry Pi—no need for USB power supply anymore
Comes as a pre-fabricated kit—no soldering needed
This does not include the external 12-18V power supply that is needed to operate the HiFiBerry Amp and the Raspberry Pi but we have both a 12V PSU and 18V PSU available.
It powers the Raspberry Pi, there is no need to add an external 5V power supply to the Raspberry Pi. However if you want to use power-hungry USB components you need to use a powered USB hub.
You can't connect the power to the Micro-USB port of the Raspberry Pi. The whole system including the Raspberry Pi will be powered from the external12-18V power supply.
