Hi, The old laptop that I was using as media center died. The setup was modest: AMD processor from ~2011 8 gig ram external hard drive 3tb connected with usb 2.0 Software: Ubuntu Linux + clementine DAC: HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC ES9023 96kHz/24bit Music: a collection of FLAC files + radio (ICI Radio-Canada Première | Émissions, horaire, fréquences radio) I will be able to rescue to external hard drive and the usb dac at least. I am looking for a cheap replacement, so I am interested in best bang for buck up to 300$, but it can be really cheaper. I am looking at raspberry pi with hifiberry. A bundle with case and power supply is around 150$. I am wondering with that price range, or a bit more, if I could get better sound (post dac). I am open for other options (both software and hardware). I would also like to still be able to connect to my usual internet radio station (see link above). I have a bunch of XSPF playlist that I would like to keep and use without modification. On a side note, that laptop was also my backup server for other usb drive, the printer server. If I use volumio, or similar software, will I be able to still perform those tasks? I am looking forward to your suggestions. Best regards,
