NanoSound DAC & NanoSound AMP^2

  • Mount Amp^2 to the bottom of DAC. Add the 2 x 1mm as shown. The 2 boards should be roughly parallel.  Videos here
  • Mount them onto the Raspberry Pi as shown.  The speaker terminals will cover the Raspberry Pis microUSB power.   This is not a problem since the DAC will power the Raspberry Pi as well.
