Hi folks.

Instead of Alix have a look at Rasberry Pi. Runrate 25-35$! That's IMO the most
attractive offer nowadays.

Cheers

Yes indeed, the problem is : there's no stock anywhere. And any order from RS / Farnell will cost me at least 75$ for shipping only

Yep. Those guys never expexted such a success. Such a computer can be used for endless number of applications.

I'm sure there'll be a 2nd batch.

The industry has realized that there is a market for those micro computers. There'll be more of these kind of boards soon.

The board is supported by quite some Linux distros. There is even an XBMC project ongoing.

I'm not sure if Puppy Linux is supported. But IMO that's irrelevant anyhow.

IMO you don't need a Puppy Linux - from my perspective it lacks flexibility. There are better solutions out there.


Cheers

Hi Soundcheck,
For Linux dummies like me, it seems that Puppy is the most logical initiation to enter Linux audio realm. Can wait to have your Linux Audio wiki up and running, that would be a precious resource.

This is cool !!!
I will have a look at this as I have many older machines laying around doing nothing.
One is a P3 9xxmhz that I could use just as a player.

Thanks !!!

Technically it is perfectly feasible, the question is power consumption - the associated operation costs. The small boards consume next to nothing and in the long run their initial expense is easily recovered.

I managed to get a Rasberry Pi from the first batch, shipping from RS was 5 euros.

I will soon be installing debian on it along with mpd from the latest git which supports DSD over USB.

I am not so much concerned with power consumption or operating cost.
Functionality is my only concern.
Using a lesser powerful machine to do playback free's up my more powerful machines to handle recording and VST effects.

Do I understand correctly you want to use multiple machines in your audio processing chain? I.e. using jackd/netjack?

Yes I have at least 3 machines that I use hooked up through the aux sends and returns on my mixer and one is for a live VST host for my guitars and midi stuff and I can use the P3 as just a player now.
Since they are older P4's and an Opteron 185 it will help to keep my latency and cpu usage down under heavy use.
