With a name like Pirate Audio (£20), it can only be our friends from Sheffield-on-Sea, Pimoroni. Its Pirate Audio range is similar to the HiFiBerry DAC but with more features. We’ve chosen the headphone version here, but line-out, 3W amp and even built-in speaker versions are available. All four Raspberry Pi Zero-sized HATs feature a 1.3-inch IPS screen and four control buttons, making them perfect for on-the-move audio. A comprehensive online guide takes you through installation including a full audio solution based on Mopidy, so you can get running right away.
