DIY streamer with volumio in standard 43cm box


The setup needs refinement. Currently, this is the initial screenshot.

Volumio 3 - 3.233
Now Playing - 0.1.3




Ok I quess you almost manage all settings. Now you have to center text and it’s size. I hope you achieve current results by manipulating now plaiyng settings, not by modifying files. If so, what result you would like to achieve.


It played with the settings today and I think that I found a good configuration to start.

Now it is time to focus on the case and a new power supply for the project.

Thank you very much by your support and hints. QJA


Good to see and read that another happy user did great job :slight_smile: congrats and good luck with case. When it’ll be finished, please show some photos here.

Hi @lausiv,
I have found this display, this is like yours?
RON 191.18 35%OFF | raspberry pi Aida 64 display 8.8 inch 1920x480 IPS LCD screen with 60Hz Driver board original brand new

Ps. Only the display is 39 Euro… I have thought that also the controller and display is 39…

Hi, without board it’s useless. So you have to choose most expensive option/full set. Btw. It’s still great price.

Hello. I’m starting a streamer project. I also want it in the 430th case, but I want a 14.9" screen on the entire front panel like the ROSE RS-150. Which resolution is better to choose for normal image output: 1280x790 or Wiseco 14 Inch 4K 3840X1100. well, in extreme cases, there is still 12.6 inch 1920*515. The basis will be on Khadash VIM1 until everything works, I’ll see if it’s worth ordering VIM3.


Due to the particularity of my rack, I decided to follow a easier DIY path to create just a support to the display.
See the pictures below:

Thanks by your support.


Looks really good and that song :wink:

still looking for the door. Found the door stopper. :slight_smile:


Sorry for offtopic but do you see any improvements if you are using these door stopper or you are using it only for stability of the hifi gear?

You are right. All my door stoopers are on my Home Theater System. :joy: :joy: :+1:



I am using door stoopers over my components for stability and Vibration control. First time I saw this was in the John Darko site, and I decided to try. I have observed more details in the high frequency portion.
I use it in combination with sorbothane feet, with good results.
In my case, the components that have best results are: streamers (RPI/Pi2AES, AppleTV, Nvidia Shield TV Pro) and BD/CD Player. The result on the DAC is more subtle.
It worth a try in my opinion, it is a inexpensive tweak.


In order to understand better this solution, I have considered that it is important to show what is behind the display. The figure below, shows the main important components:
A) RPi4/Pi2AES (with a door stooper on top of it)
B) Teradak 30W 24V Power Supply
C) Linear Power Supply 15W 5V (for the Display only)

I am considering that in this layout, the components are all encapsulated and more imune to emission problems and interference. It will be easier to improve the components if I decided to do that later. I am starting to thing in a better power supply for the Rpi4/Pi2AES.

The fact that @lausiv used a Pi2AES was an inspiration for this solution. The Pi2AES is a very good streamer and very cost effective.

The material on the display is MDF.

I am monitoring the temperature on the rack. Up to this moment, it seems OK.





Hi, very nice project, i wanted to ask you if you could send me a copy of the system image, I have the same screen, paired with a raspberry.

Best regards


Ok no problem, but please show me which one.

Hi, thanks for the reply,

I have an RPI4 and I would like the image: Volumio 3 with 8.8 cal IPS 1920x480 screen.

Greets, Fabio

So to clarify, are you talking about this one background with violin?

yes exactly, very nice…

@lausiv Great project! Streamer looks fantastic. Just wondering if you could show how you mounted the display to the actual enclosure.
