Seems like some of my favourite hobbies are starting to converge … been looking for a while at how to bring my beloved 30yr old Plinius amp and AR speakers into the modern age with my digital music collection. I do love my vinyls, but sometimes I just want to sit down and listen, picking the tunes from my phone.
I have my RPi with a HiFiBerry DAC and Volumio connected to FreeNAS over wi-fi and I am really impressed with the audio quality, especially when playing flac files.
Very keen to see where this project goes. The UI is promising but I would love to see the library concept develop and adopt many of the features I like about iTunes (even tho I hate iTunes) namely:-
- play counts
- last played
- cover art
- but most of all (multiple) smart playlists
