I’m immensely happy to announce that Volumio is finally out. You may have heard that a porting of RaspyFi was under development, and finally here it is .
In the end, who talks you is Italian. So, wanted an italian name to describe the new creation. Volumio literally means ”My Volume” , to emphasize it’s main goal : be YOUR music player. Be what YOU want for enjoying your music library.
So, let’s see what Volumio brings us:
Volumio is compatible with the most interesting embedded devices out there: UDOO, CuBox and Beaglebone Black (and PI, of course). The Pi was an exciting hardware to start tinkering, but in the end there were lots of devices out there. And let me tell you, when you’re going to try one of them, you’ll be staggered by their performance. Both in terms of speed and sound quality.
So, not only it works smoother, but you can now have S/PDIF, I2S or Coaxial native output!
See here for Volumio supported devices, and spec comparisons.
I2S DAC SUPPORT ON RASPBERRY PI
Oh yes, Volumio features i2s Dac Support. A features I always wanted to implement since RaspyFi saw the light. Just a tick of a button and i2s driver is enabled. The best part? That there are 2 shiny and brand new i2s DAC avaiable to use with Volumio. You’ll see a complete review on Volumio.org soon.
Yes sirs. Thanks to the shiny and brand new Sound@home Android App, Volumio can stream its subtle airwaves to multiple Volumio devices. Isn’t this amazing? Thanks to Diego Tafuto who developed this fantastic app. Again, you’ll better find out this functionality in the next few days on Volumio.org
MANY ISSUES ADDRESSED:
Thanks to your precious feedbacks Volumio is more stable than RaspyFi and works better. It’s webui has been improved and lot of early bugs were addressed. You can also have NFS Network shares support. As well as various under-the-hood improvements.
Thanks to latest Raspberry PI kernels, I’m really happy to announce that Raspberry (with Volumio) can now easily play in bit perfect mode up to 24/192khrtz. Even with Aysnc DACs, and without glitches!
So, all the credentials to become your favourite audiophile music player!
