    New Volumio is paid?

    My personal favorite based on both features and UI is rAudio (nee RuneAudio). https://github.com/rern/rAudio-1 I recently replaced Volumio with piCore/LMS on my secondary system as I was put off by some of the 3.0 changes. I like piCore although it's trickier to install and configure than...

    MC-1000: Best Speaker in the World?

    Awesome! That means the pair of MC-1500 I've had in the attic for 40 years will fetch at least $8,000. Any offers?

    Wireless volume knob recommendation needed

    Being a couch potato, I use the BubbleUPnP app on my phone to control volume when I use Chromecast Audio. More often I use my phone's browser when listening with rAudio, Volumio or Moode on one of my Raspberry Pis. I never touch the amp.
