AMPi internal view
X960 AMP


Geekworm AMPi is an ultra-thin desktop AMP kit based on Raspberry Pi 4, which is ideal to use in Raspberry Pi-based hi-fi systems. It composed of three parts: X960 AMP board, cooling system ( P165-B aluminum heatsink), and a NUC style aluminum case. Just simply assemble them with the Raspberry Pi 4 motherboard.

  • X960 V1.2 expansion board can turn your Raspberry Pi 4 into a ready-to-play high resolution network music player.
  • The case is made of all aluminum alloy, surface anodizing treatment.
  • Considering that the active cooling fan will interfere with the sound quality, we only use P165-B heatsink, which can provide enough heat dissipation if there is no overclocking. But P165-B may be a slight impact on WIFI,you can remove the heatsink also.
