Raspberry Pi DAC+
Raspberry Pi DAC+ is a high-performance audio HAT compatible with any Raspberry Pi computer that has a 40-pin GPIO header. With the Texas Instruments PCM5122, it delivers stereo analogue audio to a pair of phono (RCA) connectors. It does not require external power, and connects directly to Raspberry Pi’s GPIO header with no need for soldering or cables. Previously known as IQaudio DAC+.
