Do you want to use your Pi Zero W as Spotify box streaming, as an AirPlay Speaker with your iPhone or as an internet radio (to listen to Planet Rock or Slay Radio).
This kit contains the necessary items (see "content" section) to create a Pi Zero W based amplified radio. The kit incluse the Pi Zero W, the pBeat Hat (amplifier + VU meter + interface), a 5W speaker and a nice acrylic enclosure. The assembly instructions should help you to assemble the project (around 30 minutes as mentionned by supplier).
The pHAT BEAT is a stereo amplifier that can drive two speakers -or- a single speaker (by mixing the both channel, thank to the dip switch). The pBeat Hat use I2S Audio amplifiers.
The pHat also include 8 RGB LEDs (APA102) splitted into 2 lignes. This is perfect to create a VU meter ;-)
Finally, the pHat also bring 6 push buttons used to control the software used on the radio. The buttons can be used to play/pause, jump to next/previous track, adjust the volume.
The best for the end, the project is designed to take advantage of the WiFI and Bluetooth interface of the Pi Zero W. No longer need for an USB WiFI dongle.
Add your own microSD card to install and run Pirate radio software.
