I already posted some work I did around some old vintage HIFI chassis that I repurpose for volumio streaming activities (Accuphase and sony so far)
I have recently started a third one based on some old luxman devices : I bought a vintage Luxman L81 amplifyer and I was very pleased with the sound and the old 70’s look of it…therefore, I started looking for a similar chassis to build up a streamer for it. I usually tend to adapt tuner chassis as they are not too expensive and that they fit the purpose quite well. They offer nice windows space to add oled screens.
I will post some more details soon; I already emptied the tuner and bought the different components to build the streamer. Contrary to my previous works, this streamer will contain everything form streaming functions (x86 board for volumio) to transport and dac. Each part will get a dedicated power supply. I am aiming at using 2 x 20x2 OLEDs for main infos (artist, title, bitrate and album name) + additionnal 16x2 oleds for song duration and streamer name display.
That’s the plan… I will post later details of the components.
