Note that this is a soldering project, although you could use no-solder GPIO Hammer Header Kit!

Pirate Radio uses Pimoroni's 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 as 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.

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