3 reviews for JustBoom Amp Zero pHAT for the Raspberry Pi Zero

  1. 5 out of 5

    Working great for me. Simple to setup and also runs perfectly on a Raspberry Pi 2 with a stacking header on the GPIO (will not fit on a stock Pi 2 without removing the display connector or using a stacking header)

    Connected a 12V adapter and an old pair of Sony speakers.

    Working exactly as expected, a simple internet radio / podcast player that works off a single power cable.

  2. 5 out of 5

    Lovely crisp clear sound, and very simple to put together with all parts supplied. Soldering on the IR diode was a little fiddly, but not significantly more than any other board of this type.

    Works very well, and is in daily usage as a web radio with a Pi zero, the JustBoom case and IR remote all paired up with a Volumio installation and driving a pair of powered speakers (which also run well without power, although without their built-in amp).

    Overall very happy with the nice little set-up, works perfectly.

    Absolutely blown away by this board, it is incredible value for money!
    I’m no stranger to HiFi or the Raspberry Pi, I wanted something for the bedroom so I can relax in there and listen to high quality music, either before sleep or to wake me up in the morning. Also for those cosy evenings in bed.

    I ordered the JustBoom Amp Zero, the Official Case and the IR Remote control.

    When it arrived I decided to use it with the Pi Zero W, assembling everything was easy and was really surprised by the quality of the product and packaging.

    I installed PiCorePlayer as I have been using Squeezebox based players for the past 5 years, everything installed correctly.

    To power the JustBoom Amp Zero I used a 15v 4amp switch mode power supply.

    I connected it to my Q Acoustic 2020i Speakers and sat back to listen, I was expecting it to sound “Okay” but nothing special, I have never been so wrong in my life. The quality blew me away! There is no distortion at all, it goes much louder than expected and the quality is stunning.

    I have what I class as a decent HiFi in the living room, consisting of a Naim XS2 amplifier, Arcam irDAC, Bowers and Wilkins speakers, all running from my Daphile (Squeezebox) server, which can play HiRes over Async USB. Which sounds incredible, but honestly I’d be happy with the JustBoom Amp Zero in the living room and save some cash!

    I’m going to buy more and fit them in other rooms for Multiroom audio and build one in to a box as a portable hifi with a Lipo battery.

    Buy it, you won’t be disappointed!
