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!

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 here for more details.
If you want a straight-forward media player, we also have a tutorial for setting up OpenElec with Kodi, to use the pHAT DAC, here.
Our software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.
The kit has a 3.5mm stereo jack pre-assembled but doesn't include a dual RCA phono connector. If you need one then grab it here.
