The IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ is simply stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2 using the GPIO pins (no soldering necessary). The special feature of the Pi-DAC+ is its headphone amplifier allowing a full HD audio experience even through headphones. Volume can be changed hardware based and is shared with Line Out. Further pin-strips are already placed on the card to connect other hardware components.

Plug & Play with Max2Play especially for IQaudIO sound cards
Max2Play offers a browser-based administration interface for Raspberry Pi on a Linux basis. With Max2Play, applications (Max2Play extensions) can be installed and administrated on a minicomputer without any Linux knowledge. The controls can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer, without connecting a mouse or keyboard to the minicomputer.
The Max2Play image has been optimized for the IQaudIO DAC+ and can be set up easily. It ensures the best support of the IQaudIO DAC+ and Raspberry Pi combination. The IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ can also easily be installed with the help of a Max2Play extension. The extension installs all necessary kernel drivers. After activating the sound card, it can be used by the audio players (e.g. Squeezelite or MPD) for sound output. The volume settings are then automatically set to the optimal levels.
