Please note: this information is only intended for technical experts & makers. If you have not built Raspberry Pi projects before, we strongly recommend that you contact firstname.lastname@example.org about purchasing pre-assembled devices instead. We are not able to provide assistance with building your own devices.
JackTrip's Raspberry Pi disk image is built to support several different sound cards, but we recommend using HiFiBerry's DAC+ ADC Pro for the best sound quality and lowest (1ms) latency, widely available at a reasonable price. We plan to make these available pre-assembled for an easy, plug-and-play experience, but you can also build your own!
Here are the parts you need:
- Raspberry Pi 4b (2GB)
- HiFiBerry DAC+ ADC Pro (standard model also works, but we think Pro is worth the extra cost)
- Steel Case for HiFiBerry ADC (White / Black)
- USB-C Power Supply (White / Black)
- MicroSD Card (32GB) (2GB or larger is fine)
One of our community members has generously shared these photos illustrating the assembly process.
It's totally fine to substitute a preferred power supply or different MicroSD cards. If HiFiBerry is out of stock, here are a few other places to look:
