In this Raspberry Pi Volumio tutorial, we are showing you the basics of installing the headless music player, Volumio. We will also be walking you through how to get Wifi up and running on your Raspberry Pi through Volumio’s interface. Additionally, the tutorial also shows you the steps to go through to install and setup Volumio’s Spotify plugin.
Volumio is an open source, headless music player that is designed to be able to play almost every single music file, providing support for MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, ALAC, DSD and many more. In addition to support of a large variety of audio codecs it also provides support for UPNP\DLNA, Airplay, Spotify and Web Radios making it an all in one audio player. This project is very similar to the Pi music box that I covered in an earlier tutorial.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

I’ve been ssslllooowwwlllyyy working on a Pi zero W based internet radio (first experimenting on a Pi 3B). My current next step is to either get PWM sound working on the Zero or find a cheap USB sound card that works decently (my first $2 one has far too low volume output for any of my amplified speakers).
Another feature I’d like to add to it is HD radio receive but the only HD radio chips I’ve found so far are unmounted SMDs and I don’t have the equipment to work with that, and the only chips I’ve found on breakout boards are analog radio only.
