The IQaudIO Pi-DACZero is simply stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi Zero using the 2x20 GPIO header. The Pi-DACZero uses the same Audio-Chipset PCM5122 from Texas Instruments just like its bigger brother IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ did. The volume can be changed on the hardware and is shared with Line Out. An additional pin-strip is already placed on the card to connect the optional Pi-DACZero Headphone board, which requires no soldering.

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 Pi-DACZero and can be set up easily. It ensures the best support of the IQaudIO Pi-DACZero and Raspberry Pi Zerocombination. The IQaudIO Pi-DACZero 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.
