This is a quick showcase of the best creations of Raspberry Pi audio player projects with Volumio. I feel really proud that Volumio is powering lots of brilliant Audio Players Projects, made by equally outstanding music lovers around the world. I stumbled on some, on Volumio’s Forum. Here are some carefully crafted creations, enjoy!
AN ELEGANT RASPBERRY PI AUDIO PLAYER
It looks as elegant as it could be, and it doesn’t really look a DIY Raspberry Pi audio player, but a more expensive one. Joni Ive would have made it this way, just with little more gradients
But then look at the interior, and you see how much care has put into this… Rectifier with ultrafast diodes, linear regulated power supply and Audiophonic’s ES9023 I2S DAC (For some infos visit the Raspberry Pi i2s DACs list..) Love it. Nothing more and nothing less the same Raspberry Pi audio player I will build …
Here’s the BOM:
- Raspberry Pi model B (Amazon)
- Inter-Tech Mini ITX Q-6 (Ebay)
- Audiophonics DAC Sabre ES9023 I2S (Audiophonics)
- 2x 7V 10VA Toroidal Trasformer
- Audiowind A-270 regulator
Kudos to Gerry_222 for his creation!!! You can see the project thread @ volumio.org/forum/volumio-project-t1522.html
BOOMBOX Raspberry Pi audio player
Simple, straight to the point. Gives a new life to an old appliance, just the way I adore. Look at it
Could you ever imagine it will feature this?
This interestin build is a brilliant work of Volumio community member Pondidum, I really encourage you to look at the Project’s forum thread @ https://volumio.org/forum/boombox-cassette-deck-replacement-t1420.html
A STEAMPUNK STYLE RASPBERRY PI AUDIO PLAYER WITH VOLUMIO
I just love it. Insanely! Kudos Oratius! You can find a detailed instructable on how to build this piece of art @ this Instructable Project Page
HI-END RASPBERRY PI AUDIO PLAYER AND STREAMER
For those of you with Fancy Audio Gear to showcase, here’s the proper companion to it. Not only the enclosure is a perfect example of “Overstatement”, but also the care that has been put into the PSU is considerable. Sure you saw something similar sold somewhere, for the price of a car.
Besides from its look. What I really approve is a dedicated power supply both for the Raspberry PI and the I2S connected S\PDIF transport.
The classy touch, for those who haven’t noticed, is a filtered IEC power connector. Digital Sources may benefit a lot with this addition, depending on your home’s power network and system. Unluckily its creator ptiboubou didn’t share so much about this on the Forum Thread. However, you may have spotted an Hifiberry-DIGI that will take care to stream music to an External DAC. The DIGI has its own power supply, even if it can be an overkill for just a trasport interface. Overall, nice creation indeed!
PORTABLE RASPBERRY PI AUDIO PLAYER
For those on a run, or those on a car (I’m both, really often) here’s a simple yet effective solution.
A Pi, Volumio, USB Thumb Drive, Wi-Fi dongle, a mobile phone battery pack and your favourite headphones. Serve chilled. You can obtain even better result adding a i2s DAC which can drive adequately headphones. And live fast while enjoying all of your music’s nuances.
These was just examples, the one that got me more interested of the many published on Volumio’s Forum by its awesome community members. There are also technically clever projects showcased in that section, and we’ll have a look at them in another post. As of now, you have some ideas more on how to build an Amazing DIY Raspberry Pi Audio player with Volumio. Less bucks for more Rock.
