my name is Marco and I’m from Cologne/Germany.
I’m a huge music lover since I was a child. I’m 38 years old and as a profession I’m a full stack Java Developer (Spring Boot, Docker, Kubernetes, etc.).
Over the years I equipped my whole appartement with Sonos players but I’m also very interested in building something similar on my own, based on open source software and using older components/speakers.
My main interest is a multiroom system with focus on Spotify, web radios and a little bit of local music files (from a NAS).
First of all I wanted to thank the whole Volumio Team and contributors. You did (and still do) a fantastic job!
I tested a lot of different tools the last days and weeks (Mopidy, Max2Play, Pi Musicbox etc.) but Volumio 2 just worked out of the box with such a beauty web interface and great UX!
What I already achieved is getting two Volumio instances to work with local music, web radio, Airplay, Spotify (local) and Spotify connect. I also played around with Snapcast in order to get synchronized multiroom audio and everything works except Spotify. Hopefully there will be a solution soon.
