Designed to meet the demands of Raspberry Pi enthusiasts for better audio output, RaspyPlay4 is a highly functional and innovative add-on board that connects directly to the Raspberry Pi (model B+ onward) using the 40-pin GPIO header. The RaspPlay4 has two standard RCA stereo ports and a line-out for connection to headphones and other audio devices. The availability of connectors for an IR receiver and an LCD on-board makes it a formidable audio station and server. RaspyPlay4 features a PCM5122 DAC that provides high-quality audio without any electromagnetic interference. It is designed to support various sound formats, including FLAC, ALAC, MP3, and WMA sound formats. When talking about the software configuration, this board shows high compatibility with several solutions.
However, RuneAudio is recommended by MikroElektronika. Its biggest feature will be your music library. The user can play music on RaspyPlay4 from a USB flash, a USB hard drive, an SD Card, a NAS server, or even stream it through AirPlay, or any other web radio.

PCM5122 DAC provides exceptional performance for audiophile-worthy reproduction of music within a budget. Featuring preset audio processing functions with programmable coefficients, it facilitates developers to adjust the characteristics of the interpolation filter, speaker EQ, dynamic range controls, and average volume control in their products.
Idea of RaspPlay4
RaspPLay4 is a result of the collaboration between Eurogenyx and MikroElektronika. The idea is proposed by Nebojsa Pejcic from Eurogenyx, who after, years of research, came up with a better solution for Raspberry Pi. This DIY solution supported quality reproduction of digital sound in the most affordable way,
