Ben here from Southern California. I came across Volumio while looking for an alternative to music servers. They get pricey so fast… Right now I just want to try the pi b+ with Volumio on a small set of powered speakers and see how it goes. Ideally I’d like to have a volumio device in each room that I want speakers (cheaper alternative to Sonos, Airport express with more flexibility). Is it possible to control them all at once? Can volumio play tracks from a harddrive connected to an airport extreme? Does volumio organize the tracks at all?
Lastly (for now) and I’m sure this is a rather dump question but when I get my pi do I only install Volumio? Volumio would be the OS? Or is Volumio a program/app?
Thanks for your help,
