The team over at Adafruit have published another great tutorial for those looking to learn more about the Raspberry Pi mini PC, programming and electronics in general. Providing full instructions on how to create your very own Raspberry Pi Airplay Boombox which has been aptly named Boomy and uses the Stereo Bonnet Pack for Raspberry Pi Zero W, which includes the Pi Zero W and speaker set. Watch the video below to learn more about the great project which includes little 3D printing if you have access to a machine, although the casing can be created from almost anything you have available.
Raspberry Pi Boombox – In this Project we’re using a Raspberry Pi Zero W to make an AirPlay-ready audio player. With shairport sync, you can stream audio from an iOS device to the Raspberry Pi. We think this is a great little airplay speaker project using Raspberry Pi, 3D printing, and electronics.
Portable Airplay Speaker – This project features 2x 3W stereo speakers that are hooked up to an Adafruit Speaker Bonnet. This handly little Pi accessory gives your Pi a stereo audio amplifier. The Adafruit PoowerBoost makes the Pi portable with a beefy 2200mAh lipo battery. Four soft touch buttons control volume, mute the audio or safely power down the Pi.
