Hi I’m from the Netherlands, just a week ago I purchased KEF LSX. I’m new in the audio world and don’t know what everything means and how to let everything works.
In the beginning I had some problems with wifi, on airplay the music randomly pauses. problem solved by adding ethernet cable from the kef’s to my old router which is standing next to the kef’s.
Now my question, I have a big library of music on a ssd hardrive mostly flac, some mp3. I would like to play this on the Kef’s with starting the music from, iphone, ipad or computer (windows) with volumio. Most common way I found is to buy a rasp pi and a HAT with toslink and attach this to my router (ethernet) and to the Kef’s (toslink). But, since I have my tv with toslink attached the kef’s and a recordplayer to the aux imput there is no imput free for the rasp pi. The rasp pi is attached to the router, the kef’s are also attached to the router, is there a way to play from rasp pi to the kef’s by the network? how does this work? And because its digital to digital barely no loss of the high quality samples?
Anyway i’m going to by a new router and ethernet cat 6 cables to get gigabit ethernet, is there an advise in? Should I buy one with usb port for the ssd hard drive, and is volumio then still possible?
Thank you for helping!
