Since two and a half years I’m now using a Raspberry Pi 2 as a multimedia player (started with OpenELEC, later LibreELEC, now OSMC) but I was always not happy about the audiophile capabilities and the missing ease of use . So I decided to test several music player on RasPi basis. I tested RuneAudio, Moode Audio, PiCorePlayer, Max2Play amongst others. Now I seem to have found what I was looking for: Volumio!
In the mean time I bought two more RasPis (3), one with IQaudIO PiDigiAmp+ and Waveshare 7 inch touch display and one just with case and power supply. The first one is going to be my bathroom radio (I’m really sick of the permanent ads on radio over the air) and the second one will replace my old RasPi as OSMC device. The old Pi will be used as a audiophile music player (audio output via USB connected to a Lake People RS06.
So far I can say I love Volumio! The only thing I’m missing a bit is the Qobuz integration (yes I read the lengthy thread… ) even if it is possible to use BubbleUPNP to hear music from Qobuz using Volumio.
My questions I will post in another area of the Forum.
Thanks a lot for all your work and support!
