today I’m using a Raspberry + Hifiberry Digi + Nubert A200 Pro. Audio files are stored on a server.
In general I’m quite happy with this combination. It works well and sound quality is fine.
My question is, if there is a future for these kind of solutions.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to use one of the cheap 8’’ Windows tablets (~100€), like Dell Venue Pro 8 instead of a raspberry/volumio combination?
Cost is slightly higher, but you get:
- build-In display and soft keyboard
- USB connection for a DAC
- choice between many audio players (foobar, etc.)
- raspberry/volumio requires another device for remote control
I think that the sound quality via the USB/DAC should not be worth the Raspi/Volumio combo.
What do I miss? I’m looking forward to your opinons.
