inspired by many other DIY projects (especially thanks to Gerry_222 & mictester!) here is one picture of our “Huarez / DarkSign” project, named “HiFiPi” :mrgreen:
Although it is still work in progress (…need to add some small relay pcb to the second voltage converter exit which will supply dedicated power to the both USB ports at the front bezel of the MS-Tech CI-70 case…), everything is working flawlessly right now. If the still missing relay pcb is added soon, it will - in case of shutting down Volumio / Raspberry with the remote - cut the second stage power which supplies power to the usb ports only. As the RemotePi Board 2015 is powering down the Raspberry, the USB power supply also had to be switched down simultaneously, but this only is needed in this case because of the second 5volts stage which also supplies the Raspberry through the USB connector downside the pcb…
Equipped with the RemotePi Board 2015, not only Power On / Off could be done through any remote, also even more commands (…using LIRC - Thanks a lot Matt!) like Play, Pause, Skip Fwd / Back are possible !
Not finished yet completely, we´re already thinking in building another one, which will become even smaller due to the help of mictester (Thanks!!) suggesting a completely different way in building the power supply / converter
IMHO all of the DIY Volumio projects are one of the most interesting things to Audiophile / Electronics related people withing the last few months !
Keep up soldering, developing and - Have Fun
