The Sparky Single Board Computer is a credit card-sized board that’s just perfect for Volumio: since it has been designed with Audio in mind. A true open hardware, community-supported embedded computer for developers and hobbyists. The Sparky SBC is comparable in performances with the Raspberry PI 3, with a couple of differences:

  • It does not feature integrated Wi-fi or Bluetooth
  • It has high quality onboard clocks, so its better suited for Audio applications

But that does not mean that Sparky can do only audio, since its also very flexible: it also provides the flexibility to use any of the Raspberry PI add-on boards currently available. Piano Hi-Fi DAC, Volt AMP, Cheapo DAC, GIGA dual Ethernet, Telecom Analog Shield and GSM Shield add-on boards are also available.

  • Expansion Shields ready (Piano DAC, Piano DAC 2.1, Volt, Kali, Cheapo DAC, GIGA, LCD, Camera, eMMC, etc.)
