Which amps do you recommend for Raspberry Pi 3 B+?

Sun Apr 07, 2019 1:26 am

I want to connect a pair of passive speakers to Raspberry Pi 3 B+. I want an amplifier that satisifes the following criteria.
  • It lasts more than 10~15 years if it's left powered on.
  • Components are easily replaced when they break.
I could pair an external amplifier with HiFiBerry DAC+ or just use HiFiBerry Amp2.

i would use a DAC + stand alone amp,,this is what i use for one of my 2.0 set ups-' easy to repair from what i've read ,haven't had to my self ,its important to note it will have a burn in time(15 ish hrs) as well as i would upgrade its pwr supply( i use a old laptop pwr supply 19v5a),i use it w/ my zero w -no dac as i had a hdmi to vga with a 3.5 mm sound out already https://www.parts-express.com/lepai-lp- ... --310-3000

and i know id have better quality using a DAC and new pwr supply but as i've aged ive developed tinnitus so i'm not as much a audiofile anymore :(
remember ,never approach a computer thinking this will only take a minute
