just to say many thanks for this beautiful project to all contributors,
I’m not quite in yet, I was actually in a quest for both simple and qualitative way to play music from my NAS, guess I’ve landed on the right place !
I’m switching from a ArchlinuxArm (goflex net) with mpd , and I want to go on a more both easy and flexible solution,
before choosing my next device , need some little pieces of advice:
raspberry + hifi berry since the legacy choice, but cubox-i would be great also, as I already have an external DAC (VDACII). I am afraid though that volumio would be less often updated than on raspberry (right now, I see that 1.5 is supported only on raspberry), will it be the case ? Any other consideration to take into account ?
I have a beautifull bluetooth speaker (gramovox) that I’d need to output too, will it be easy to setup ? to switch audio periphal ? I know that sometimes, outputting on bluetooth can be a pain on linux systems …
I’d love to test it before going and buy an other applicance : is it somehow possible to run an image on my macosx, or is it complicated/impossible ?
how will be my nas connected, is it nfs or afp, or … ?
I see mention of "third party clients’ , but can see any references to them, can you point me at them ? any ipad app available ? (mpad for mpd was great , I’d love to keep the same ease of use)
Thanks for you help guys and see you soon onboard
