Multi-room audio with the HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro and Volumio

The old amplifier's faceplate.

After my kitchen stereo project, I’d been thinking about the next stage in my multi-room, RaspberryPi-based audio setup: The Living Room! I had, in a box, unused for probably ten years, an old NAD C272 stereo amplifier. A pair of Paradigm Atom bookshelf speakers were gathering dust down in the basement that used to belong […]

HiFiBerry Amp 2, Vintage Koss Speakers and Volumio

I’ve been a Sonos user for probably five years now. Initially, they were something of a marvel of integration and software polish, providing ease of setup and room filling sound for … they are not cheap. Their closed ecosystem was another sour note for me, but I pushed past that in favor of convenience. The […]

Scrivener 3

scrivener 3 for macOS, stolen without shame from https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/overview

With much fanfare and a website overhaul, Scrivener 3 was released to the world yesterday, November 20th, 2017. It’s a big update, and you should really read the manual (RTFM! specifically Appendix E) before committing to it. If you’re in the middle of NaNoWriMo and cranking on words, I’d recommend holding off until December. OR, […]
