First steps


First steps

First of all, we want to thank you for using one of our HiFiBerry products. It seems like¬†you love music as much as we do! As our products are do-it-yourself modules, we’ll show you how to install and configure the hardware and software to get going.

Hardware installation

If you use our boards with a newer Raspberry Pi that features the 40-pin header, the installation is very easy: Just plug the board onto your Raspberry Pi.

P1. PiFi - RaspBerry PI with HifiBerry DIGI - parts

If you want to assemble one of the HiFiBerry cases that we provide, have a look at our Guides section, where you’ll find assemble instruction for all cases.

Software installation

Our boards will work with practically all well-known Raspberry Pi music player and media center distributions. Some of them will just detect the card and use it, others will require additional configuration. We recommend to have a look at our software selection page which lists the most popular distributions. You will also find some configuration guides and links to the support forums for most of them.
