I want to build a media player by using Volumio on raspberry pi. I will probably mainly use it as DLNA renderer together with the amazing android app Bubbleupnp.
Now I see a lot of posts on the forum where people claim to have difficulties using the new Pi 2 B with volumio. OS crashes and other stability issues. I guess this is just because it’s still new. But I am wondering if I should buy the 2 version or just the B+ version which already works stable. I can’t imagine I need the extra power on the 2 just for audio playback.
I intend to use the berry together with a hifiberry dac+ and a WiFi dongle with RT5370 chipset, which should work on raspbian.
I don’t really mind paying 8.- extra for the 2, but if I never use it it’s still “wasted” money unless I tend to use it for something else in the future…
