AMP HATs

Postby Pete » 24 Dec 2018, 16:29

Rather go with a DAC hat I was thinking of using a AMP HAT so i connect speakers directly.

Which AMP HATs does Rune support?

I found an AMP HAT called just boom which looks good. Is that supported/recommended?

Many thanks
Pete

I have a Hifiberry Amp2.

https://www.hifiberry.com/blog/introduc ... ffordable/

Currrently on the mantle hidden among the Christmas decorations, it's basically invisible. I use a recyled laptop power supply and only one wire to the nearest wall outlet is detectable. The amp drives 8ohm bookshelf speakears. Volume is quite sufficient for a large family room. Typical listen at 20-30% on the runeaudio app.

I'll take a look at the justboom. Looks like they share the same Texas Instument chip. Eventually I'll have one of these in every room plus the garage.

Thank you. Looks like an option. What size speakers are you powering
