RaspyFi for audio
« on: September 24, 2013, 09:00:15 PM »
I recently obtained a Raspberry Pi and installed the RaspyFi distro on it for my son's room.  He wanted to listen to his favorite radio station that wasn't coming in very in his room so this is a great application for it.  They support higher-end USB DACs but I'm just using the standard stereo from the 3.5mm jack.

Check out www.raspyfi.com for the latest version.  They just released their non-beta version and it's working quite well.  I especially like the web interface which makes it very easy to use.  There's also a smartphone app that makes it really easy to use the web interface.

The hardest part is finding the correct URLs for the streaming radio stations.  I found a few websites that assisted me in finding them but I will have to look them up and post them later.

This project has been renamed to Volumio (http://volumio.org/) and supports multiple platforms.  The beta version for the Raspberry Pi seems to be working really well.
