First off I just wanted to say that I love the idea of Volumio and it was the first thing flashed to an SD card once my Raspberry Pi arrived for Christmas. Thank you to everyone who has put in such hard work to make it happen .
So far I have two project ideas in mind. First a high quality dedicated source and DAC for a BottleHead Crack OTL headphone amp (I’m not sure which headphones to pair it with currently but I think I’ll just take it to a headphone shop and test it out with lots).
The second project, and the one I would like so more help with, is the beginnings of a multi room system. So far I have ordered a HiFiBerry, I figure that given it is taking the I2S straight from the CPU it’s value must be pretty good.
I also need an amp, some preliminary Googling has led me to believe that something like this:
sureelectronics.net/goods.php?id=1580 (2 X 15Watt Class D Audio Amplifier Board - TA2024)
Would be a good amp, is this correct? I’m not looking for anything super amazing, just something able to provide nice ambient music. Once I’ve decided on the amp I’ll start researching speakers.
Will this need a volume control or will I be able to use the software volume in Volumio?
Many thanks for any help, this is my first project with electronics or a Raspberry Pi .
