Hello everyone, Angelo from Italy here!
I missed this very section so I did a little presentation inside my first post in an existing thread, so as I’m now aware about the ‘Introduce Yourself’ section I think it’s appropriate to introduce myself here… DIYer and music lover since I was little more than a child, after many decades (I’m 57) I still strongly prefer to build (and possibly design) every device that I’d like to use in the audio field: last thing I built is a couple of Dipolo loudspeakers, very satisfied with the results as well as all the people that listened them so I’m very encouraged to continue to build something.
One thing that I don’t have in my audio system is a streamer/player device, for HD stereo and maybe even MCH music, as I always preferred to use physical supports such SACD, DVD-A and BR… lately I have seen some very interesting DIY devices built with both Raspberry’s and/or fanless mini-pc so another spark has struck and now I started to design a 43cm wide case that could possibly contain up to two Raspberry’s, one of which as a player with a DAC hat already bought and the other as LMS streamer, a mini-pc and up to two touchscreens, one regular 5/7" and one wide 8/10/11", of course it depend on whether it is possible to build in such a way.
I have a lot to read, plan and evaluate, very easily the project will change during the work depending on new ideas, unexpected problems/incompatibilities or even major software changes so I’ll have to be good to adapt at new situations and challenges and have a lot of patience.
I don’t know when, but I hope I’ll be able to show you the final design and the work in progress.
Thank you for your patience in reading the whole post!
