Looking for a Raspberry Pi?

Hi everyone, if you or your friends are having trouble buying a Raspberry Pi for your Volumio project, Volumio might have the answer.

Volumio now has the option of obtaining a batch of RPi 4s for people who are keen to build a Volumio project. Given the limited quantities available, we have to prioritize those interested in a Premium account. We could therefore offer a RPi 4 (2GB) plus a year’s Premium subscription (normally €59.99) for €120 if there is sufficient interest. (Note that, as with a regular RPi purchase, you would still need to source your own case, power supply, SD card and any other accessories you might want/need).

At the moment, we would like to understand the level of interest so please let us know if this is something for you!


Any feedback is really appreciated :wink: See this as a group buy, where you can also suggest other ways or options

Love the idea and opportunity, but will leave for others, as I already have 2 rpi4 and 2 rpi0, and life subscription. :grin:

Same for me. The deal is great (the rPi back to a normal price) but already have more gear then licenses.

good idea. I would be interested

I came here to figure out how to work around the pi shortage as I plan to expand Volumio to a couple more rooms. I would be interested for sure!

A post was merged into an existing topic: Compatible x86 machines

I would have loved this because I was in the market to get exactly the Pi you describe and the price gouching on the internet is terrible, all PIs well over $120.00 for just the Pi. The deal I ended up going with was the CanaKit (around $125 I think) that gave you the PI, SD Card, Power Supply and the Flirc case. I didn’t need all that but for the money it was the best deal.

I would do the Volumio deal in a heartbeat if I was looking for a Pi now.

Actually i’m looking for a Pi 4 but no availability or the ones available out of market price. How this would work when already paid the annual subscription couple of days ago?

I’ve had some issues with my RPi 4B and my Qutest DAC using DSD256. I tried moving to JRiver on Windows to use ASIO to get native DSD, and then the Qutest had other issues. I tried JRiver on Linux, and I compared it with Volumio. Volumio wins, even with JRiver on Linux. There was no doubt. I ended up back with the RPi feeding the Qutest, as the Qutest has problems For most people, I think the RPi 4 is perfect. I am using a mini-PC (running Volumio) on my primary stereo which now has a Mini Maggie speaker system. The RPi 4B, even boosted to 2 GHz, is not sufficient. Basically, what I’m saying is that if you have a fairly normal sound system, I highly recommend Volumio, and the RPi 4 is a good choice.

I’d be interested!
