Hi I'm playing around with the idea to use a Single Computer Board (SCB) as a music streamer rather than a full blown PC. I have two questions regarding that. 1) How do these devices (Odroid and Raspberry Pi2) compare to a full blown PC? Are they better soundwise? Worse? The same? Different? Did anyone ever measure or compare the two? 2) I'm thinking of building the following device: Odroid or Raspberry Pi2 board (good following, broad support, the Odroid is slightly more expensive and has higher energy consumption but is more powerful) Linear power supply. At the moment I am thinking a small Teddy Pardo as the maximum I'd need is 20 watts. SOtM tX-USBhub with a linear power supply, connected to the SBC through a Male A to Male B USB connector. Good USB cable (Chord Sarum) Uptone Audio Regen DAC Music source is a Synology NAS connected over home network (Cat7 cable, two switches and powerlines). Running on Raspbian/MPD or Volumio or something along those lines I want to play CD quality and hi-res on it. No upsampling or format conversion. Anything I would need to look out for? Yours Arie
After installing a Schiit Wyred between my office desktop and Wadia PowerDAC mini, I began to ponder using one in place of the USB charger that powers my Raspberry Pi Picore Player. The Picore Player streams radio and Pandora from the Squeezebox Server and my networked Vortexbox server. The Wyrd worked wonders on my desktop system. Has anyone used a Wyrd as an outboard power supply? Thanks and Happy Holidays to all.
