@merlin yes, plug n play

@knorst check this link Simple, low cost, HiFi network music streaming device

Now, if you want to take it to the next level of nerdness, go for this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Screen-Allwi...ords=allwinner

haven't tested it though, but I believe it will work beautifully. Can't go wrong with android.

I got android on my tablet. So do I need a micro usb to usb and plug that straight into my dac? I'd also prefer to keep my audio files off my tablet, and on an external hard drive. Maybe get a NAS for this or convert one of my external hard drives into a NAS.

Which audio player for android plays FLAC? I got my audio collection in FLAC.

Sorry if You would just be using the PCM2704 (a DAC) to convert USB to SPDIF to another DAC, presumably you have an existing DAC with no way to connect to PI. Is that what you were getting?

I would not dismiss the the PI. Worth pursuing for $35 - good way to learn Linux, epitomizes DIY. It works well. I have a Sonos as well. For $350, pretty nice - plug and play in 5 mins. Decent built in DAC.

Droid is interesting idea. Would you have to root to be able to mount CIFS/NFS share in DROID to access files on PC or NAS? How is that done? DROID seems more consumer driven, locked down Linux. PI open.

is the PCM2704 in combination with the raspberry pi using the spdif output of the PCM2704 able to provide high quality digital sound up to cd quality to feed a good DAC and a good amp/speaker system...with quite good Canton speakers (Ergo RCL, old but still good!)


thanx for further answers...

greetings knorst ;-)

I have a concrete problem...

i want a system connected to my dac and amp with the possibility to remote control.

It should be low cost...

Raspberry Pi:

After research, the android box still seems to be in an experimental state what concerns digital audio output...Rpi doesn't seem to be the device without huge amount of setup necessity...

Alltough few projects exists:

SqueezePlug

https://sites.google.com/site/picoreplayer/home

RaspyFi - Pi never sounded so good!


The Android Box:

The only Android app with remote control i've seen so far, is xbmc...

Wereas it is very obvious that xbmc has it's priorities on Video Playback....

The existing remote apps can't compete with the remote capabilities of streaming services like remote for itunes (airplay) or the logitech media server LMS (squeezebox).

For me the perfect solution would be running a LMS server on an Android box, which isn't possible....



any other ideas?
knorst

You don't like squeezebox (software) as player and controller?
