Evening all,

 

I’m looking for a little advice from your collective wisdom.  I’m at the end of the process of moving from the Moon ACE to separates.  The last stop is the streamer.

 

I have a Chord 2qute going into a Linn Klimax Control and Twin Power.  The CD player and TV are taking to optical and coaxial inputs on the 2qute leaving only the USB.

 

I don’t stream that much just radio, podcasts and checking out an album before buying the CD or vinyl.  So it doesn’t need to be anything flash and I don’t want to use very many hifi buying brownie points.

 

So I’m looking for options.  Anyone any ideas?

 

Thanks very much.

+1 for moOde on the pi... can get any Pi off gumtree and do it relatively cheap. Suggest you look for 3b and above, gives you the flexibility to use wifi if you dont have ethernet cable near your set up.

Thanks.
Raspberry Pi.  I don’t know anything about these.  I’ll do some research.

Try this youtube link - shows a step by step to set up moOde on a Raspberry Pi 4. You don't need anything more than the Pi, power adapter and a USB cable.

Also if you are researching the Raspberry Pi's and think the thing looks like a horrible science project, or hacky DIY solution, there are a bunch of cases you can get from approx  $10 to $30 that will finish it off and make it easier to handle both physically and visually.  Heaps of options on ebay and such.

Thanks again guys.  Looking into these I see why the recommendation.  One thing I can’t quite understand is how you control it.  Does it have a iOS/android app or do you need to use something else?

You simply use any computing device (laptop, phone, tablet) to view the web page (at the ip address of the reaspberry pi) that it generates and publishes.

 

You can also run any mpd control app (I use M.A.L.P.) to access the mpd process that is at the heart of the moOde system, but start out with the above web page - much more featured and friendly.

No I meant, start out by using the raspberry pi web page at the ip address of your pi,  to control it.

Ah I see. I didn't see you mention that.

Another option is to use a smartphone or tablet or pc.

 

One way would be 3.5 mm out of an iphone into dual rca cable.

audioquest cable linky

 

Other phones with the 3.5 mm will do that too, as would a pc motherboard or idevice.

 

Another cheap option is a bluetooth receiver to stream from a smartphone/device.  I've not used these so can't recommend a particular one but they're pretty cheap.
