Hi all !
I received my Pi yesterday, and thought it would be nice to come and say hello in person (so to speak).
I’m 33, from France, former amateur classic music player (mostly viola and piano). These days with job/wife/kids, there’s no time to go back to playing (and less energy) but a lot off listening to great records… which is where Volumio comes
My hifi gear is more or less complete (I’m not a “always more” kind of guy) so now I turn my attention to having a good computer source. (i’m using my HTPC currently, with an ok USB out, but having a wife-friendly configured PC for hifi is not the best way I know it can work…
After all the troubles I heard about the RasPi’s USB ports, I was hopeless to be able to give it a try, but the HifiBerry guys gave the exact right answer I needed. I still haven’t received my Hifiberry Digi yet, but I’ll be sure to give you a review. (for the moment it’s HDMI–> TV --> Optical to the ST200).
For the time being, I’ll mostly be asking questions in the software part of this forum
