We love the Raspberry Pi for its small form factor, its low power consumption and its flexibility. However, unfortunately the onboard sound output is not designed for high sound fidelity. HiFiBerry adds high-quality sound to your Raspberry Pi. Our sound cards are designed for optimal sound output quality. It is the ideal solution for all Raspberry Pi users that love music.
Our products connect directly to the Raspberry Pi, no external cabling is needed. Both our DAC and Digi board are supported in the standard Raspberry Pi kernel that is included in the Raspbian distribution. We are committed to Open Source software. All drivers are available as open source, we support developers to use our products with their software.
The HiFiBerry products are already assembled and do not need soldering on the HiFiBerry board (except the DIY versions). However a small 2×4 pin header must be soldered onto the Raspberry Pi. Our boards uses the digital sound connector P5 on the Raspberry Pi Rev. 2. Most Raspberry Pi’s are Rev. 2 board. However, you should check, if your board features the P5 connector.
