Overview

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.

These are the most difficult to figure out and least intuitive instructions I have seen. First there are more parts then you need so you can get confused as to which part goes where. Second, there are not enough pictures to show the screw and spacer locations on the bottom of the board. Third, how about an installation video. I had to go to Amazon and watch a video about another board and case installation to try and figure some things out. I was expecting some pictures of the bottom and screws used. None there. Had to guess. Hope I have it right. Also, how about a legend outside the case for hooking up the speaker wires. Should I just guess once the board is in the case? Seriously, I have built many DIY kits but instructions are usually included. This is a joke. Videos, full pictures, legends....where????

Hello, we are sorry that there is currently no installation video for this AMPi. Have you seen the installation guide image? Are there any areas where we cannot describe clearly? We will continue to improve
