Would the Duet with remote work in this situation? The duets seem cheaper on eBay than the radio or boom. Do they all have some form of output? Can they all run Spotty, play network music and internet radio? captcaveman's

In terms of immediate simplicity and low cost, if an Android phone is in the works, using that device as a player with line out to the stereo is an option. I use SB Player in combination with Squeeze Ctrl, from the same developer. Squeeze Ctrl is my controller of choice, use it for all my

IIRC Picore runs everything out of RAM and as I understand no swap to disk so too many applications running at same time and you may run out of memory whereas Raspbian and Max2play can swap to disk. bpa's Profile:

This is why I would start with raspbian, add squeezelite, manage it as per raspbian, and add software as I pleased, the raspbian way. That will include lots of features out the box that you don't need, and will work just fine as a media renderer. IMHO it's probably harder to start with PCP and

piCore is only 20 or 30MB. I think Raspbian is now over 4GB. That's a huge difference, a lot of stuff has been stripped out. piCore is as small as possible and you only add what you need. That's why it takes < 10 seconds to burn an image to a SD card. Raspbian is so big because it trying to be

I think the main issue with a "pre-owned" SB Boom is not screen fading, this happens too on any model equipped with a VFD screen. The most important problem is that under heavy continued use, boomers may split their foam surrounds and you have to replace them. Play something loud and you would
