[WTD] Raspberry Pi

    After trying a few options I've decided to use an RPi to dabble with occasional streaming.

    I'd prefer a WiFi version, but if there's a good reason why an earlier board has better sound quality (in terms of the electronics, obviously wired streaming will sound better) I'd consider it.

    Also I'd like a nice case, but I could always get one on eBay if the board itself was cheap. Also if it comes with a memory card with the software on that's a bonus too. I'd like LMS/Squeezelite but will consider other options.

    WHYG?

    I’ve got a Rasperry pi 3 with Allo DigiOne SPDIF. It’s loaded with DietPi running as a Roon endpoint. £95 inc P&P.

    Sorry I didn't get a notification of your reply. I've got a USB convertor so I don't need a hat just a simple Pi but thanks for the offer.

    Hi,

    Not back at the ranch until next weekend. I bought one as a project - I think from Pinkfish - then realised I'd never get around to it. It's got the Pi, quite a nice black perspex case with metal uprights, power supply I think. It came with three micro SD cards which I've used for other things, but I assume that means it's also got a memory card slot. If you're not sorted by next weekend (23rd) I can check it out and send some pics. A reasonable donation to a mutually acceptable charity would be fine by me.

    Ewen.

    Today I bought a new RPi3 model B with case and ModmyPi PSU on eBay for £29.95. I’m pretty sure there were some left.

    Thanks that's a good deal, I'll wait to hear back from Ewen though I think.
