DIY streamer with volumio in standard 43cm box

Hi Mike, so could you please explain a bit, what kind of photo you would like to see more?

I saw this project on diyaudio on FB, dude you inspired me, so much so I ordered pretty much similar parts to you. I really want to try and make it like yours!

I have never tinkered with a Raspberry pi before or done coding. So I’ve been reading the forums and obviously found this and 2aCD thread just to prepare myself.

Thanks for posting so others like me have an easier time learning.

Hoping I can share my project with you and maybe get some input.

Very nice build! I just ordered the display from Aliexpress. I have a Electrocompaniet EC4 (same father to my amp as to yours. Per Abrahamsen) so when I saw your project I was very happy! I have a question though. What PSU are you using in your build. I´m using the Asus Tinkerboard S instead of the Pi4, but I think they draw about the same current. 2.5A-3.0A. Have a nice day! <3


PSU is dedicated custom linear power supply 24V 3a and it powers directly pi2aes then pi2aes is sending 5V to rpi4

I’m so close to doing a similar project, all the parts finally came.

My only issue is the touch screen digitiser doesn’t seem to work.

I connected into my windows 10 laptop and it just doesn’t recognise the touch screen or board.

The screen doesn’t come with drivers or instructions so I’m not sure if it’s the board or the digitiser itself. Something i will have to check and look into.

The screen itself is nice, clear and works well.

Now please remember this is my first time doing this.

I managed to install volumio and installed the touch screen plugin.

When the screen was connected I wasn’t getting anything from it, so I just read a few forums and copied a script to the config file just to get it working.

I didn’t actually know what I was doing, as im just learning as I go.

But simply I copied these lines.

hdmi_cvt=480 1920 60

To the config file and saved it.

It came up with a few errors but the screen came to life. It’s in portrait mode presently but happy I got this far.

Now I need help for the rest?! What do I do now guys?

I’d like to have it landscape mode but also have the ability to use the touch screen and control functions.

ok this is great i copied the ipconfig file but what do i do with the app-313 file?

How do i use this file?


Why don’t you use my userconfig file? It should work for your screen as well. There is rotation and full streaching to all borders of the screen.

It is better to use userconfig instead of config - config file can be replaced after some updates of volumio system.

Thanks Lausiv

I have done that now and it seems to be working properly, i also used it in the userconfig file.

You can replace original one, but I suggest to use additional menu following 2aCD thread.

What are you using to power down the system?

putty ssh : sudo shutdown
or in volumio UI shutdown >> power off

Have run the screen in general with volumio? What exactly is state of your project? In which step do you need help.

Would you mind sharing that pic you´re using as background. I think it´s perfect! :slight_smile: :star_struck:

No problem - feel free to use it :slight_smile:

Eeeh? Where is the pic? :smiley:
