Volumio (RaspPi2) as an alarm clock ?

Is it possible to set Volumio as an alarm? to start music (with delicate fade-in for few minutes) at programmed basis? (could even by cron :slight_smile: )
how to solve amplifier case/problem? (should it be turned on all the time? possibly small amp joint with RasPi2?) or maybe at a programmed time (by simple power supply programmer) power will go up - RaspPi2 will turn on (amp too, etc.) and the automatically start playing (with fade-in)
