Audio Amp SHIM (3W Mono Amp)
£6.85 ex VAT
A super-simple, slimline way to hook up a 3W speaker to your Raspberry Pi! Output punchy digital I2S audio whilst leaving your GPIO pins conveniently accessible.
This addon has been designed with a clever friction fit header which slips handily over your GPIO pins to be sandwiched between the Raspberry Pi and a HAT requiring zero soldering making it easily removable.
The MAX98357A combined DAC / amplifier chip takes high quality digital audio from your Pi and amplifies it so it can be used with an unpowered speaker. The push-fit connectors make it straight-forward to connect up your speaker, whether it's a bookshelf or floor-standing speaker, the speaker in an old radio, or a teeny tiny mini speaker
Because Audio Amp SHIM adds no extra bulk to your Pi it's perfect for building into a compact enclosure - you could use it to make a tiny MP3 player to play local files or stream from services like Spotify, give a vintage radio the ability to play digital radio streams or incorporate bleepy noises into your very own retro handheld. It's also a handy way to add audio output to your Pi Zero or Pi 400!
