as an audiophile who loves raspberry pi’s I looked for a new use case for one of my newly purchased raspberry pi 3 and stumbled over Volumio.
As I read the distribution supports DAC, network shares and even has plugins for the official 7" touchscreen, GPIO Buttons and the same beautiful UI HTML5 UI in browsers I just had to install it immediately at 2 in the morning. Had the other hardware I needed a few weeks ago. :mrgreen:
My Setup is a Raspberry Pi 3 with heatsinks mounted on the official 7" Touchscreen connected to a FiiO Olympus2 DAC via USB to my Audio-Technica ATH-M50x with volumio connected to all my music shares in my network. Works like a charm even with my amount of audio files and fell in love immediately. Also connected a 40-pin GPIO Extension Board to a breadboard to try out the buttons, worked perfectly.
Thanks to Thijxx scrobbling to last.fm works too now.
Volumio is just amazing, great work, excited what’s going to happen in future releases.
