Perhaps some enterprising CA member with more IT knowledge than I have can figure out how to use this device as a replacement for the Logitech Squeezobox Touch, now that John Swenson' Wandaboard based project was apparently shot down in a volley of mysterious, bizarre, and unexplained legal injunctions.

Well Father Sarducci, I see an Ubuntu install with an i2S Dac for starters......and a nice case of course, maybe with a slot loaded CD Rom drive. There's some cool DAC boards with display panels on Ebay from Weiliang that people over at DIYAudio rave about.

Thank you! Really appreciate your supplying these links. Lots of material to digest.

 

Any article specific to a Squeezebox replacement that uses LMS protocol and is controllable via iPeng and SqueezePad?

I saw this mentioned -

 

I2S DACs support out of the box. R-pi DAC, Hifiberry & Hifiberry DIGI, Iq-Audio Pi DAC, Raspy3Play. Just connect them, and activate the proper driver from the i2s selector. Reboot and enjoy.

 

Some Pi developers and users have been...em.....not so happy with I2S compatability and report frequent drop outs and lock ups. Of course I haven't followed the discussion enough to discover the cause, but is suspect from the frequency of reports, I2S is not yet a plug and play option.

I haven't heard about these problems with I2S. I've tried Raspberry Pi Model Bs with the IQAudio Pi DAC and the Wolfson DAC and they both worked very well indeed. I preferred the sound of the IQAudio DAC with the Volumio music oriented Linux distribution. I lent a non-audiophile friend the IQAudio DAC/Pi combination when I visited the UK at Christmas time, and this is the latest I heard from him: "Am enjoying music massively!!!". So I personally think a Raspberry Pi with an I2S DAC works great, and is less problematic that using them for USB audio.
