Raspy Fi: Open source never sounded so good (by Michelangelo Guarise)


Published on

RaspyFi (now Volumio) is an open source linux distribution. It will transform your Raspberry Pi into an audiophile source, in 10 minutes without hassles. It comes ready to play, and it’s compatible with almost every USB DAC available.
You can consider it as a Voyage-MPD version for Raspberry Pi. But it’s simpler to use and it has several other functionalities!

With RaspyFi you’ll be able to play your music library directly from an USB Storage or from your NAS. You can also listen to your favourite web-radios and scrobble your favourite tunes from Spotify, Last.fm and Soundcloud.
You will be amazed about the sound quality! RaspyFi’s core feature is this. We are trying to get every bit of your music to play as accurate as can be, optimizing every aspect of the system.

RaspyFi supports asynchronous playback to take advantage of the latest DACS, it features a nice webgui you can use to configure it without hassles and to play your library from your pc, your smartphone or your tablet.

You can connect your little Raspberry Pi to your Audio System, sit on your couch, use your favourite device (Win,Mac,Android,iOS) as a remote control and enjoy your music as it is. With RaspyFi your Pi never sounded so good!
