Thanks

@matthias

thanks for asking

we have 3 options

 

1> Volumio >> always will be free

2> myVolumio Virtuoso >> for 2 devices for 2.99 euro / month

3> myVolumio SuperStar >> for 6 devices for 6.99 euro / month

 

full info here

cheers!

 

OK, thanks

for Qobuz/Tidal integration you need option 2, you pay Euro 72 for two years.

So for more than two years something like Audirvana may be less expensive.

Volumio is a software company at heart and we are very much aware that we need to give value to our followers in order to retain them and keep them happy.

That being said, in 2 years, Volumio will be so much more than what it is now; this is only the beginning.

It is just my liking that I want to pay once like Audirvana and not on a monthly basis.

With the lifetime license. 

 

Lifetime licenses are a discrimination against older audiophiles.

I prefer a license which does not expire, one reason for disliking Roon.

I tried volumio, but wound up cancelling my paid plan, just wasn't for me.  Only thing I gained useful from going to paid plan was Tidal/Qobuz.  It was OK, but i was paying money per month for what LMS/squeezelite/Daphile can do for free.

Yes, paying per month for using software does not make sense at all, differently to using streaming services.

Do you mean "using self hosted software"?

 

Even if the software is self hosted, remember a lot of software still needs access to online sources of data on an ongoing basis. For example, Roon continues to contact its metadata servers. Who pays for that? If you pay once you have to recognise you are making a bet that your usage will outlive the average.

You may be right, but I am not interested in Roon.

I do not have much stored music and prefer streaming from Qobuz etc, so I am perfectly happy with something like Audirvana.

The older versions of Volumio, which were free, were able to provide Qobuz & TIDAL with its built-in upmpdcli UPnP & OpenHome renderer - so Qobuz & TIDAL access via an OpenHome controller such as the Linn Kazoo app.

 

Has this now changed?

Things like this probably still work, i did not explore that route.  At the time, i was only looking for a single box solution.  I've done embedded linux development professionally, so once I saw what Volumio did, i branched out on my own.   I did REALLY like the way you could download the source code, write your own, and deploy direct to target device.  That was a very handy thing to have already setup for you.

Guys, VOLUMIO is and always remain FREE as it has always been, Opensource, like @BrokeLinuxPhile has experienced. 

We just offer something new for those who want an easier, integrated option.

It offers a higher level of easy user interaction for the not so DIY crowd out there.

Its there to grab... or not.
