    Volumio Collaboration With Audiophile Style & Superphonica

    Happy Monday everyone! 

     

    I recently spent time with the team from Volumio at the Munich High End show. I must say I was very impressed with how these guys think. Sure, they are technically very smart innovators with respect to digital audio. However, what we talked about most was how to collaborate and bring more value to our customers / members of our communities. I told the guys that anything that is published on Audiophile Style must have a benefit for the reader and that if the reader is giving us his time we must give something back because there's nothing more valuable than time. The Volumio team agreed 100%. Seriously, these guys put themselves in their customer's shoes and make decisions from that point of view.  

     

    Situation: Volumio has a new product called the Primo and the company wants to make purchasing the product as frictionless as possible for existing customers. 

     

    Solution: Volumio customers can list their current Volumio streamers on Superphonica and receive a 10% off code for the purchase of a new Volumio Primo. No need to wait until the unit sells, just list it and get the discount. 


    This not only helps existing Volumio customers, but the 1% fee charged by Superphonica upon the sale of all items on the site goes to fund the writing staff here at Audiophile Style. So, sell your stuff, get new stuff, and get more reviews and articles about the stuff you like. It's a win-win-win.

     

     

    Here are the specifics directly from Volumio

    One way or another. 

     

    I'm a big fan of AS, but I must say this makes me uncomfortable--you will be reviewing a product on which you are directly benefiting from the sale.

    I make zero money on the sale of new items. The sale of used items (our 1% commission) benefits AS by paying for writers, which benefits the readers including you. 

     

    If you see this as a problem, that’s ok. I see it as less of a problem than manufacturers just writing us checks directly for advertising. 

     

    No worries though.

    Volumio running on a Raspberry PI lets you addin RoonBridge; this isn't a Pi. Acc'd to the Roon Community it is possible on Tinkerboard HW: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/roon-bridge-on-an-asus-tinkerboard/63815/15

     

    You would think with all the effort they've put in to making this an "audiophile" device, they'd add a Roon Bridge plugin, so a "click" installs it. 

    Hello and thanks for your comment concerning Roon. 

    For the Primo we have decided since the beginning to go  the Official Roon Ready way which is a better overall user experience. 

    regards

    Okay, but I looked at the Web page and it isn’t listed as Roon Ready. Does that mean it hasn’t been certified yet and will be in an update?
