Review: Raspberry Pi 2 as Music Streamer
A couple of months back the Hewlett-Packard laptop that served me as a media player decided to leave this world for a better place (the recycling bin). It was February the 2nd, and that same day the Raspberry Foundation announced the all new Pi 2 Model B, with a much improved spec sheet. And no, I did not sabotage my own laptop just to find an excuse to buy a RPi2. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer, the first edition of which launched on February 2012. Since then, more than 5 million of these little buggers have been sold worldwide. As technology moved forward, processors and memory chips got cheaper and cheaper, so today we find ourselves with a pretty decent hardware platform at the rather modest price of $35. Now it might not sound as much but trust me, it is more than enough to get you playing full high-resolution audio files including 2xDSD and DXD! Basic ingredients: This is it. Have you noticed that something else is missing? Your main computer will do.
