And finally, the long awaited Volumio version for UDOOs is here among us!

As some of you may know, I have a very special relationship with UDOO, since I’ve been part of UDOO Team since its early days. And this great board is not only one of the most awesome SBC out there, but its made by a very skilled, passionate and inspiring team.

So, I am extremely proud to announce that Volumio is now available both for UDOO Quad and UDOO NEO. And the good news is that we’re capable to use most of their advanced functionalities with this Volumio release. First of which is their integrated wireless connectiviy.

Passionate. Heretical. Deeply in love with Technology and Music. I live in Florence, Italy where I teach Interaction Design and Marketing. I'm Volumio's founder and CEO, and I love every second of this great adventure. My audio gear is some strange mix of valve and digital amplifiers, all self built in some cold winter sleepless nights. And I just can't turn that volume knob down.
