I am new to volumio and this forum. I am in Italy and I have a little former experience with linux, enigma2, and hifi.
My wish would be to have volumio installed in an x86 machine, thin client that I will buy, and use it with a dac and an old amp with passive speakers (will improve amp and speakers later if things go as I hope).
I choose an x86 machine as I have seen that is difficult to find raspberrys, they cost more than in the past and I am not fully experienced in…assembly.
So, could you help me?
- what will be a good thin client? Is there one reccomended? My budget is not huge but I can reach the amount of about 100 euro for it, I think. If a Raspberry or similar is to be preferred I can take that solution, but please in that case tell me also what are the improvings in order to decide.
-as a dac I would buy a topping e30, first version I think. Also here the budget is not great, but if you can suggest something better for about 100 euros I will be happy to hear suggestions.
- In order to have things working I can learn and improve, I like it, so will follow the guide section and study. Just asking what will be a good starting point for it. I am already reading the forum but with no precise direction.
I have seen that there have been some clients for sale as ready to go in the Bazaar in the past, one of them will be good for me I think, but as for I have seen none of them is available now
Thank you in advance, please clear my thoughts and let me in this world
