Like many of you with Squeezeboxes, I was really bummed with Logitech discontinued the line of hardware players almost 2 years ago. I have a full line of Squeezeboxes: Transporter, Touch, Classic, Boom and Radios. Although they all still work fine, I was torn between stocking up with used versions via eBay, or trying to make my own. I stumbled across guys doing cool stuff on a Raspberry Pi, called the PiCorePlayer:https://sites.google.com/site/picoreplayer/home I decided to give it a shot, so I needed to secure a Raspberry Pi. I had not bought one before, but I was vaguely familiar with the concept and capabilities. My local MicroCenter has stacks of these things, new, for just $29! I had a 8GB SDHC Class 8 card laying around (under $10 new), along with an extra iPad charger + MicroUSB cord laying around. You can get dedicated Raspberry Pi chargers for ~$10. I followed the instructions, and had a "bare bones" Raspberry Pi up and running as a Squeezebox in about 10 minutes, super easy! I listened to it for a few days just via the built-in headphone jack. The sound was not very good, but I wasn't expecting much. In fact, it was fairly noisy, about the amount of background you'd get from a decent vinyl setup. I knew I'd ultimately want to use this purely as digital transport to feed an OPPO HA-1, or other A/V receivers around the house. So, I ordered a HiFiBerry Digi for $40 shipped. Found a cool case for another $30, the IQaudIO.com Pi-Case. All told, I have a bit over $100 invested in this project. Cheaper I think than any used Squeezebox Touch would be. The sound over optical cable is fantastic! I control the PiCorePlayer via iPeng or SqueezePad iOS apps, which is how I control my other Squeezeboxes 100% of the time anyways. I have little use for a player display or any kind of touch controls on the unit itself. Also, it only uses 2.7watts of power, so I can leave it on 24/7/365 and it only consumes a penny a day worth of electricity. I may build another one day and add a digital amp and speakers, to be used in a garage set-up or similar.
