Hey Mr. DJ! Turn up that Raspberry Pi mix to the max with this cute 3W Stereo Amplifier Bonnet for Raspberry Pi. (It's not big enough to be an official HAT, so we called it a bonnet, you see?) It's the exact same size as a Raspberry Pi Zero but works with any and all Raspberry Pi computers with a 2x20 connector - A+, B+, Zero, Pi 2, Pi 3, etc. We've tested it out with Raspbian (the offical operating system) and Retropie.
This Bonnet uses I2S a digital sound standard, so you get really crisp audio. The digital data goes right into the amplifier so there's no static like you hear from the headphone jack. And it's super easy to get started. Just plug in any 4O to 8O speakers, up to 3 Watts, run Adafruit's installer script on any Raspberry Pi, reboot and you're ready to jam! No soldering required if you're using our 3 Watt speaker set, just plug and play.
Don't forget to make sure you have a good strong 5V power supply - especially if you're using the 3W 4 ohm speakers! Adafruit's 2.4A power plug is recommended.
