Instructables user petachock posted this great tutorial on how to make your own pi powered hifi:
I had a pair of old speakers from a Sony hifi I had in the 90’s and wanted to have a semi-portable hifi that I could use in the kitchen and outside in the summer.
I use XBMC on my home theater system and saw that there is a few distro’s that are based on it so having researched a bit I decided to go with OSMC which seemed like a good solution for a Raspberry Pi 2.
I did need an amplifier and not being good at electronics I needed to buy one so I went with a cheap one from e-bay that is often used in cars and motorbikes. After plugging it in and testing it I was happy with the result for such a low price of £16.
