Wow!  I get to be the first "consumer" of RP FLAC on Volumio to post here.

Raspberry Pi -> I2S DAC -> Pre -> amp -> Speakers.  Pretty pure and simple.

I've been a follower of both RP and Volumio for years and the whole idea of both is revolutionary and holds great promise.  And I have to confess I probably should be considered one of those OCD Audiophiles - I build tube audio equipment and speakers and spend way to much time on this, but it is one of my greatest pleasures.

So what do I think?  The sound Quality is amazing.  I have to admit I've only listened for less than an hour, but immediately felt there was a significant improvements.  Thanks so much RP and Volumio!

I will post back in a few days of listening with maybe more impressions.

Again,  Thanks!  and good listening to all...

Hi,

I published a first version of the Volumio Plugin which should already be quite stable. You can listen to the Flac version of Radio Paradise.

Discussion and download can be found here.

It's also available on github.

We're finishing up an API for that. It does require a bit more at the client end than a simple stream player, but not that much. Should be pretty easy to implement. We'll be releasing that in Q1 2018 (along with our new web player + website).

 
Glad to hear that! I'm setting up Volumio in Linux to be ready. I'm very much enjoying RP FLAC streaming in my smartphone everywhere I go with a pair of very good heaphones and I was looking forward to route that pure stream to my big speakers (320Kbps AAC+ is very good but it's not the same, once you hear FLAC you miss it ;-). Your continuous effort to do better earns more support from our side, really deserved. Thanks a lot for al the good work and the good times!

Hi Bill, I am using Volumio in RaspPi 3, I am very interested in studying how to play RP Flac on that device.
Is there any technical documentation available to implement it?
