raspberry pi amp case


RPI-HIFI-AMP module is a high-quality, highly efficient 25W Class-D power amplifier for the Raspberry Pi. you can get a stereo audio system by mount it onto your Raspberry Pi. Only thing you have to do is connect your loudspeakers to our module. It’s the ideal choice for small room audio system.


  • Up to 25W output power.
  • Capable of driving 4 Ohm speakers or higher.
  • Fully controllable from the Raspberry Pi.
  • Support 44.1kHz and 48kHz sample rates.
  • Digital-analog conversion included—no need for external DACs or sound cards.
  • Fully digital sound path for optimal audio performance.
  • Connects directly to the Raspberry Pi no additional cables needed.
  • Wide Power input :12-20v external power input for both RPI and module.
  • HAT size.
  • Up to 90% Efficient.
  • Integrated EEPROM for automatic configuration (Option).

Hardware connection

  • Connect the RPI-HIFI-AMP module and RPI with 40 pin connector .While installing the module
  • attention to align the first leg of the raspberry pi and RPI-HIFI-AMP module.

Software Installation

RPI-HIFI-AMP module compatible with many Raspberry pi music playback system such as:

OSMC / Max2Play / RuneAudio / Volumio / Moode / PiCorePlayer / PiMusicBox / OpenELEC etc. The

user can choose a suitable for their own .

Match Power Supply

Please refer to DC 19V 2A Power Supply

Warning: The Raspberry pi will be powered by the AMP. It is not allowed to connect 5V to the Micro-USB port of the raspberry pi. Power supply is only one external 12-20V power supply that will be connected directly to the AMP.

I hear a constant beeping (high frequency sound, not modulated by wifi activity) when the HIFI-Amp is connected. This does not occur with the x400 connected using the same pi and same power supply. Do you have any recommendations how to get rid of that annoying sound?

The 19v power supply is to weak for the rapsberry pi3. Is it possible to use a 19v powersupply for laptop with 4.65 A ?

Hi friend,

Yes, 12-20V power supply is ok to use.

So really no GPIO can be used for other purposes, for example an on/off button?

Please can you explain: what are the 3 holes for contacts in the right top corner of PCB? Seems to be for rotary volume control, that would be fine. In software you can accidentally increase the power and (accidentally) missing access to volume control over application, so the best would be physical control... Thanks

Hello friend, When install the AMP board on the Raspberry Pi, it will take the full GPIO PIN of your raspberry pi board. Hope to get your understanding! Best regards,
