Amp hat suggestions needed

Postby jeroen_vdk » Tue Jan 07 2020 21:20

since a year i am using volumio with the Just Boom Amp HAT : https://shop.justboom.co/products/justboom-amp-hat
sound is great, works just fine.

i want to extend for the other zones, i have mostly all the same speakers in different zones: 8 ohms low impedance dynamic power 50 watts, already installed since some years...

It looks like JustBoom is not a-live-and-kicking... their homepage is already stuck for months with errors : justboom.co
There has been a critical error on your website.

Somebody else is using JustBoom ? if i will buy multiple amps, i want something future proof...
Or any other tips for another amp hat if needed multiple in mutiroom setup like below?

I will need multiple amp hats for following installed speakers:
- zone 1 : 2x 50W 8ohm
- zone 2: 2x 50W 8ohm
- zone 3: 2x 50W 8ohm
- zone 4: 2x 50W 8ohm
- zone 5: 2x 50W 8ohm
- zone 6 : 4x 50W 8ohm (need to look how to play in sync, 4 speakers in a row)
- zone 7 : 5.1 system around TV --> 4x 8/12ohm 120Watt and center 8ohm 100Watt, subwoofer not bought yet.

(all cables for all zones are grouped next to electrical cabinet)

thanks in advance for your ideas/opinions...

I use an IQAudio Pi-DigiAMP+ (of which I believe the Justboom is an imitation!) with great success. They're a bit cheaper than the Justboom, and the company has been around for a while. Justboom are changing their manufacturing sources, which is why their products are mostly out of stock.

This happens from time to time, as Gordon makes them in batches.

It may be worth your while sending him an email asking when new stock will be available. (gordon@iqaudio.com)
