    WiiM Mini Streamer

    It doesn't seem to work. I believe the reason why is that I cannot connect my own iPhone to my own iPhone hotspot. And thus, I cannot use the Wiim Mini app since I cannot connect to wifi. Is there another way around this problem?

    WiiM Mini Streamer

    It's a long thread, so sorry if this has been discussed already. Can I run the Wiim Mini off of an iPhone wifi hotspot? My work computer and internet are restricted. Thus, I'd like to use my iPhone as a wifi hotspot to the Wiim Mini, to a dac (toslink) and amp, and then to speakers or...

    Kali LP-6 2nd Wave Experience

    I bought a pair of Kali LP-6 v2 monitors last week too. I have yet to measure and EQ them, but out of the box they sound good, at least on par with my Adam T5V monitors.

    WiiM Mini Streamer

    I have the same problem. I have my toslink cable connected ok, but maybe it’s the Wiim cable itself. I’m going to buy a Monoprice toslink cable from Amazon to see if I can get beyond 24/48 with my Wiim Mini. I’m using Tidal top tier (unnecessary and I need to downgrade since I don’t have mqa).

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    I never heard of it, but I'll investigate. Upon a little investigation I think I'll stay with the Raspberry, but thank you.

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Does the Raspberry come with operating software? If not, where and how do I get it? I presume I need a small touchscreen to set it up? I live in a Mac environment - no PCs. Is that a problem to set up the Raspberry, especially if I'm just using it for EQ (Volumio and Fusion Dsp)?

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Would this work - Raspberry Pi 4B 2GB RAM Mini PC w/ Vilros aluminum case and power supply? I found it on eBay, though a bit pricey.

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    It just dawned on me about the Raspberry placement - between Wiim and E30ii. So, the Raspberry is just providing EQ and nothing else, correct? So, how powerful of a Raspberry do I need? And I presume I don't need one with wifi either. I just need to download and load the EQ software - via a USB...

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Though pricier, there seems to be Raspberry Pi's for sale on eBay. What am I looking for if I go this route? I'm not sure I want to wait 1-2+ months for the Raspberry to become available from suppliers.

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Equipment needed for Raspberry Pi setup: 1) Raspberry Pi - which model and configuration? 2) Power supply? Other accessories? 3) Software? I need software to run the Raspberry and access wifi. How do I access Apple Music and Tidal? 4) For EQ - Volumio and Fusion Dsp - both free? 5) Do I need a...

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Is this what I need to order - https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/raspberry-pi/RASPBERRY-PI-4B-2GB/10258782? What accessories do I need? Do I need a monitor? If so, what do I need? And is it possible with the Raspberry to have a small screen (7") showing the music being played? I see...

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    Why the Raspberry Pi option over the Mac Mini? Being unfamiliar with the PC environment, setting up a Raspberry seems a little daunting. Would I need to use PEQ settings for EQ, or could I use convolver (.wav) EQ? I suppose that would depend of the EQ software, but can the Raspberry Pi run...

    Low Cost Music Server or Streamer With EQ

    I want to set up a music server or streamer in my living room. Upstairs in my home office I use a Macbook Air M1 streaming both Apple Music and Tidal.

    Looking for some computer speaker recommendations; can someone help break it down for a noob?

    My vote is for the Kali LP-6 v2, but they’re somewhat tall and you don’t like the looks.

    WiiM Mini Streamer

    This might have already been covered, but if I set EQ on my computer for the wiim mini connected monitors, will the EQ settings be transmitted to the monitors using the Wiim app and/or the Tidal app?

    Balanced DAC for Powered Speakers and Wiim Mini

    Which is better? Topping E50 or SMSL DO100? I believe the Topping has MQA which may or may not make a difference using wiim and Tidal master level. How is the gain of the volume for the DO100 compared to the E50?

    Balanced DAC for Powered Speakers and Wiim Mini

    So many choices . . . What's a good DAC with a toslink connection to the Wiim Mini streamer and powered monitors (Adam T5V) with a balanced connection between DAC and monitors? I also want a preamp (I presume) to adjust the volume of the monitors when not using a remote (iPhone) for the...
