50+ Write music, make guitars and LOVED Synths for decades
Primarily focusing on the RASPI platform at the moment (Im 100% Linux at home so that helps), and have been looking for something like Volumio since day 1
There are DOZENS of folks out there successfully using the combo to do GREAT things, me, its moving a tad slower, but that’s part of the fun.
HOWEVER I have a VERY basic, simple and probably naïve question.
BTW I have loaded both PICOREPLAYER and VOLUMIO, and really like Volumio better over all.
HOWEVER since 1st boot of BOTH I have had one burning question about the very basic, very CORE of the ideas behind both products.
Spawned I know because A) I couldn’t get sound out and B) I couldn’t find a document that said
“This is great if you want to X and it WILL/WILL NOT do Y”
so now you know my nerosis, here we go. You address both products on headless RASPIS hooked up to very MP3 on planet earth, youre on a wired and wireless network, you can loop into a local website and control EVERYTHING
BEST OF ALL - it seems that no matter what you log in FROM you get a very consistent look and set of controls (BRAVO!)
My question is ======== If my RASPI is running a DAC and is hooked to a sTereo receiver with monster 100W speakers directed over my loft…
should I hear the music ONLY from the stereo?
Should I be able to plug my headphones into my android phone/tablet/pc/chromebook/smart TV and be able to hear the music from THERE as well?
Now Ill be honest, most of my poking around seems to be pointing to #1. But since I have yet to get sound of ANY kind on a consistent basis, I was hoping…
SO Ill leave it to you experts to answer my query.
As for MY issues I know its 99% due to the fact that I rarely get to ever spend more than 15-20 minutes at a time working on the project…so im pretty sure Ill get THAT part worked out.
