I've seen some posts here and there over the years about the Raspberry Pi device being used for audio streaming, playback, and DAC. I figured a dedicated thread might bring it all together. Apologies if there is already a thread. I was reading on www.hifiberry.com
and they have various boards (and other accessories) for digital streaming, DAC, and amplification to add functionality to the existing Pi device. I already have a dedicated DAC/headphone amp so the Digi+ Bundle
looks promising. No fans in these things, either, which is nice. Would it make sense to use this with an external HD?
I know this is all old news to some here, but who all is using the Raspberry for this use? For those of us who may be on the "less-techie" end of the spectrum, is it fairly easy to setup and operate? It all looks pretty straightforward and there are tons of info on other sites for setting things up.
