Open the bags and unpack the parts. Make sure to remove the protective layer from the plates, they stick to the surface so try peeling them off on the edges. When you are done, your parts should look like the right image.

Step 1

Take the bottom plate, four screws and the four spacers (3mm). Now carry the screws through the recesses of the floor plate. For comparison, in the right you can see a picture of how it should look.

Step 2

Put the Raspberry Pi on the screws. Take the plastic spacers (12mm) which were delievered with the HiFiBerry AMP + sound card. Fix the Raspberry Pi with these spacers.

Step 3

Now place the HiFiBerry AMP+ on the pins of the Raspberry Pi. Take the metal spacers (15mm) and attach the sound card.

Step 4

Now, the first side part of the Case have to be attached. Take the side panel with the recesses for the connections of the Raspberry Pi and the HiFiBerry AMP+. Put it carefully, because the parts are fragile.

Note: Now connect the passive boxes with the sound card. This is the last possibility for this. After closing the Case, there is no access to the locking screws of the HiFiBerry AMP+.

Step 5

Now take the rest of the side plates. The side plates can be simply placed on the floor plate.

Note: The sides should fit easily into the gaps. Do not apply excessive pressure because the small plastic parts are fragile.

Take the cover plate with the HiFiBerry logo and place it on the side plates.

Note: The holes for the screws should lie directly over the spacers.

Finally, the four remaining screws are tightened. And the housing for the HiFiBerry AMP+ is ready.
