Wolfson Audio Card for Raspberry Pi

I had no end of trouble trying to download the SD-Card image from the Element14 website. Downloads stopping half way through, page being unavailable, etc but managed to find another smaller image that had been compiled on the forum.

You can see the original post here and the direct download from Google drive here.

Got it all installed and booted only to find my Audio board was DOA, after a quick phone call to Element14 a replacement was sent out.

Once it arrived I booted up Raspberrian and installed Shairport this time the card was detected correctly and played sound 🙂

This particular Raspberry Pi runs the speakers in the Kitchen and on the deck and the difference in sound quality from the onboard to the Wolfson card is significant. Will be looking at getting at least one more for the lounge.

Would certainly recommend it if you are using your Raspberry Pi for analog audio.
