Description

Build your very own internet-connected radio with Pimoroni's Pirate Radio Kit!

This kit has just-about-everything you'll need: Pimoroni's flashy new pHAT BEAT DAC and stereo amp, a 5W speaker, and a beautifully retro acrylic enclosure to make it look the business. It even includes a Pi Zero W. All you need is to  add your own micro-SD card and USB power supply. It'll take you around 30 minutes to assemble everything (check out Pimoroni's assembly guide for details).

Kit includes:

  • Pi Zero W
  • pHAT BEAT DAC and stereo amp with VU meter and six buttons
  • Male and female 2x20 pin headers
  • Single 5W 4Ω speaker
  • Blue acrylic enclosure
  • 50cm USB A to micro-B cable
  • USB A (female) to micro B (male) adaptor
  • Mini to full-size HDMI adaptor
  • Sticker sheet (personalize your Pirate Radio!)
  • Comes in a reusable kit box

Pirate Radio uses the new pHAT BEAT DAC and stereo amp to drive the single speaker (left and right channels are mixed when you flip the DIP switch on the underside to mono mode). pHAT BEAT uses the same I2S mono DAC and amplifier that Pimoroni uses on Speaker pHAT and Picade HAT and... adds a second one for stereo goodness! The two rows of 8 APA102 RGB LEDs make the perfect VU meter, and there are 6 buttons along the edges to control your audio.

This kit takes advantage of the built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth on the Pi Zero W, meaning that there's no need for a USB Wi-Fi dongle.

Pimoroni has put together three different software projects for your Pirate Radio: an internet radio, a Spotify streaming box, or an AirPlay speaker.
