I’d like to say that this project is seriously pure gold. Why?
- Easy to use interface
- Low component cost
- Bit perfect sound transfer
I’ve got my raspberry pi connected to my NAS via WiFi playing 24bit/96khz music perfectly. The web UI by far feels like the most polished mpd interface and doesn’t require additional software installation, just a browser. Of course there are minor bugs (it’s in beta) but i could happily live with where it’s at now.
For comparison, windows PC with Jrivers vs CD player vs Volumio on pi -> all on the same DAC with the same music (FLAC & CD of same song)… could i tell any difference, nope. They all sound the same to me (my view is if have to think about it for a long time about any perceived difference, then there is no difference), which is what i expect given their function is transferring bit perfect 0’s and 1’s to a DAC.
Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for creating something so simple that does its job so well.
