I found information about the Squeeze box players, and how they do not make them anymore, then found that you could use your Raspberry Pi with many different distributions to create different types of music players, but none really fit my needs as they required much programing and I did not have the time to «make it work» as I should. Then, out of the many searches trying to find the Logitech Media Server installation, I came across Max2Play. It promised to do everything I needed and wanted along with a few extras as well.
Whole house music and multi-room systems are very popular in homes and living spaces of all shapes and sizes. There are many ways to send music throughout a home, including wired and/or wireless connections that enable control from anywhere. You can use an existing receiver as the center hub, or you can install a completely dedicated whole house music system. The amount of effort involved can range from adding a speaker switch to a receiver, do-it-yourself wired/wireless networking, or something more sophisticated that would require professional installation. However, there are pros and cons to the different methods available.
Voilà bien longtemps que je devais revoir mon système audio multiroom complètement, pour avoir quelque chose de plus complet, répondant à mes besoins, de meilleure qualité, et avec un budget maitrisé. Si vous ne connaissez pas le multiroom, c’est en fait un système audio qui permet de sonoriser plusieurs pièces afin de pouvoir écouter la musique qu’on veut, où on veut dans la maison. Je vais vous expliquer ici comment j’ai mis en place ce système audio multiroom à l’aide de Raspberry Pi et cartes audio Hifiberry.
