I do think that quite some people expected to end up with a quality streamer.
There are still many people around who believe the transport wouldn't make any difference, because everything is digital.

I do also think that throwing 35$ and hours of work out of the window
can be avoided, if you know what you're ending up with.

I havn't seen many people over here targeting midfi sound quality.


Anyhow. Enjoy.

The pi does serve other purposes, so I have a backup to my main system that doesn't sit in a drawer, it actually runs my planted aquarium lights/co2 setup. So for me at least, it was a worthwhile investment.

I probably should not have used "mid-fi" here, I should have said 'state of the art', for some people's set up it might just work fine for while, until they upgrade to something else. Which will happen to most people here even if they currently own 'state of the art" stuff!

I'll get one, Either on the Pi or slightly bigger configuration. I am sure it will be a good device for my secondary portable system, thanks for sharing.

Hi there!

Are you considering to port RaspiFy to Seagate Dockstar / GoFlex Net / Pogoplug E02 ?

Thanks in advance!

The Cubieboard looks like a good choice for an audio player since it has a SATA port and an S/PDIF output. Video outputs include VGA, so older LCD monitors could be dusted off and used for a dedicated display.

I will give RaspyFi a try. The WDTV Live plays most audio formats (including flac), but doesn't do gapless playback, and the user interface leaves a lot to be desired as an audio player.

Hi everyone, finally RaspyFi 1.0 is out...

The main update is a WebUi, which you can use from all your devices. iOS, Android, PC or MAC. You can use it to control playback and configure the device.

Plus, much of playback glitches have been solved. There's a rudimental Ramplay option, you can play now also AAC and ALAC and there's built it Webradio Support. It can also be used as an Airplay receiver... Not quite an audiophile mode, but sure it's confortable!

Here's a little preview of the WebUI:
RaspyFi Web Ui - Audiophile Linux on Raspberry Pi - YouTube

I do really look forward to hear what you think guys... Guess we took of all that can be done from the little PI...

RaspyFi 1.0 audiophile linux is out! - RaspyFi

So, there are quite good news to come... We're porting it to other, more powerful platform... Results are quite intriguing...

I think you mean the CubieTruck. Agreed - looks like a promising board for this type of application.

Just took a swing at firing this up.

I don't think that my DAC is supported. It's a MUSE USB + TOSLINK/SPDIF model that can act as a USB DAC or a standard one [LINK]. I don't see the USB chipset on the list. Hooked it up with the Pi's 3.5mm jack and it works just fine.

My USB stick also didn't show up. Playing the web radio stations works great. Very nice to have a set of high-quality stations pre-programmed.

First impressions are very good. I have been looking for a good use for my Pi and this might just be it.

Update on the USB stick: Went into the Database menu and hit refresh - the USB stick showed up and I can play the files.
