The JustBoom Digi Zero pHAT for the Raspberry Pi Zero is a high resolution digital audio output add-on board for the Raspberry Pi Zero and Pi Zero W. The HAT produces a high-quality audio data stream that will not be negatively affected in any way.

We’ve designed the JustBoom Digi pHAT to be simple to install and use. With no soldering required and all the mounting hardware already provided you can be up and running in moments. We also include an optional IR receiver to allow remote control operation of your Raspberry Pi. It is also powered directly from the GPIO header so no extra cables or power supplies are required to connect to the Raspberry Pi.
