The DAC and headphone amp give you crisp digital amplified audio through your wired headphones.
Pirate Audio is a range of all-in-one audio boards for Raspberry Pi, with high-quality digital audio, beautifully-crisp IPS displays for album art, tactile buttons for playback control, and our custom Pirate Audio software and installer to make setting it all up a breeze.
Our Pirate Audio software and installer installs the Python library for the LCD, configures the I2S audio and SPI, and then installs Mopidy and our custom Pirate Audio plugins to display album art and track info, and to use the buttons for playback control.
Here's how to get started:
git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/pirate-audio
You can find more detailed instructions here: https://github.com/pimoroni/pirate-audio/tree/master/mopidy or get tonnes more info in our Getting Started with Pirate Audio tutorial.
Note that our installer, linked above, does all of the below for you, but if you're an intrepid hacker then you might need to know this stuff!
