I am a Danish music lover who has an old netbook - a Nokia Booklet 3g ATOM CPU, 1gb ram - that I tried to run Windows 10 on. It worked but it was quite slow. Now I wonder if I can use it in my kitchen as a music player into Little British Monitors (LBM). For this Volumio may be just what I need (fingers crossed).
I have spent quite a while on Pink Fish Media and a few other hifi fora. I have been streaming music since Philips introduced their small MP3 streamer, later i turned to Squeezebox Classic and Touch. In the past few years I have streamed to a home built CAPS music player with a Paul Pang USB card in it. This card has had a malfunction so I started looking for alternatives and I realized that Volumio may just be what I needed - first for my old netbook but later - perhaps - for a RPI, Allo Digione / USBbridge set-up. Interesting times lie ahead.
I have 6 weeks off, during which time, I will build a few streamers, complete my DIY FirstWatt F4 build (with lots of help from people who know what they are doing) and relax to music.
