Thanks to iTunes, Spotify and Beats Music, listening to music, wherever you are is easy. However, for those on a budget, unlocking your home or office hi-fi to newer ways of consuming music is often out of reach.
One of the benefits of the Raspberry Pi, however, is that its affordability, flexibility and diminutive size make it perfect for use as a home audio solution. Meaning you can control your music wirelessly without buying an expensive hi-fi.
Use our step-by-step guide to discover how to control your home stereo system with a Raspberry Pi.
