    :

    A lovely little board that gives very nice clear and smooth output with minimal fuss. Very easy to fit with no soldering required. Just either connect directly onto the Zero’s GPIO pins (which of course do need to be previously fitted and soldered of course) for a low-profile setup or via the supplied riser header for use with the zero case. The board just slides on and grips the pins in either case, and is very secure whilst still leaving some length of pin available above the board if you want to piggyback stuff.

    Using mine with the Zero case, Volumio and the IR remote plus a set of powered PC speakers to make a cheap and cheerful web radio for my study which works a treat.

    Highly recommended, 5*.
