1. This audio kit is designed for Raspberry Pi 3 (3B+/3B), and the X10-I2S Board is connected to Pi 3 by the USB connector. Please refer to the picture shows.
2. This kit is also fit for Raspberry Pi 4, but due to the change of Pi 4 USB port, the USB connector is invalid and you need to use a USB Type A to Type A cable to connect Raspberry Pi 4 and X10-I2S Board.
3. In short, if the kit includes a X10-I2S Board and use with Raspberry Pi 4, you need to prepare a USB Type A to Type A cable to replace the USB connector.

Power Supply Unit 35W R-CORE transformer:
AC voltage Selector
110V : AC input voltage MUST be 110~120VAC
220V : AC input voltage MUST be 220~230VAC
a) Make sure that you know what voltage is being supplied by the power outlet before setting the voltage selector switch and before connecting the power cord.
b) To switch the selection, unplug the power cord and use a small screwdriver to slide the switch to the opposite position.
Before pressing the power button:
a) All AC output wires to the X10-PWR board are wired in the correct order.
b) The power cable from X10-PWR board to Raspberry Pi pin header are correctly connected.
c) The AC input voltage selector switch are correctly switched.
