I have been testing Volumio for a while now and see it as a great contender even against other commercial products. My question is about scale and long term ownership of the hardware needed to support the software.
I wish to build a rack mounted system able to handle 12 zones which would require 12 Pis and something like the HifiBerry Amp2 or the equivalent from Allo. Thing is that this would be a lot of little boxes running about in the rack and a same amount of power supplies.
Question is does anyone have a neater solution to a multiroom setup, maybe one that can auto power on and remote off too?
