could a mini pc fit?
so i can broadcast in mqa via a wireless keyboard, right?Absolutely- all a streamer is really is a headless PC- running some variant of one of the operating systems. Of course, they probably have phone apps and/ or remote controls to get around the screen/ keyboard thing but yet. All Roon Nucleus boxes are , for example is quiet mini PCs with a decent storage.
Another option, if you are using Android, is to use BubbleUPNP to pick up Tidal and stream to Volumio. This does not require the paid Volumio subscription and it works quite well. I do this from my Samsung S21=>BubbleUPNP=>Tidal Connect(in BubbleUPNP)=>Volumio=>DACGot the RPi 4 going, the best bang for buck streamer out there.
USB into the DAC (which isn't an MQA one but the uPNP stuff works, as does gapless)
Decided to get the Volumio 15 day trial anyway. Tidal would be a bit useless without it, but fine for own collection as a music player
No luck connecting Qobuz (got the trial too) - don't know if it counts as another device, shouldn't do??
Noso i can broadcast in mqa via a wireless keyboard
can i use Pi 3 or only Pi 4 to transmit Mqa from android via Mconnect?Another option for using a Pi is mConnect (on Android or iOS) to Volumio or Moode via DLNA to the Pi to your DAC - the DAC will light up the MQA light so it's bit-perfect (not to be confused with quality).
I've used mConnect on both Android and iOS to stream to a Pi 3B running Volumio and Moode (at separate times of course) to two different MQA capable DACs and it's worked great. I've also used BubbleuPnP on Android but I prefer the mConnect UI.can i use Pi 3 or only Pi 4 to transmit Mqa from android via Mconnect?
