The pi shelf is filling up. Got the pi zero running pi hole. The pi 3 is running docker with some apps. Pi 4 is my Plex and storage server with a 2 TB hdd. And the old pi b is going to be a Spotify device.

Is there any benefit to a Streaming component if I already have a good DAC and I’m comfortable using a computer as a streaming source?
1 project | reddit.com/r/audiophile | 15 Dec 2021
You're not going to beat the laptop on quality, but for the same quality you could beat it on size and power, if you wanted. A Raspberry Pi running https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify will be equally controllable from your phones, and quite compact.
Spotify Connect on my old HiFi
1 project | reddit.com/r/spotify | 10 Dec 2021
I use a raspberry pi 4 with raspotify connected to a usb dac, it works super well! The config file lets you set the device name, type, and music bitrate.
Raspberry pi WiFi streaming to HiFi system
2 projects | reddit.com/r/audiophile | 2 Dec 2021
I don't have any control or library software built into my setup. I'm only running https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify for Spotify Connect and https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync for AirPlay streaming, so I have no need to interact directly with the Pi during normal usage. It's all controlled from my phone or PC natively.
Headless music player - using Spotify?
1 project | reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi | 15 Nov 2021
https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify Use raspotify on the PI directly, it turns it into a Spotify Connect target. I use that on my PI that runs alot of other crap that is headless. For the amplifier I'd rather get a cheap auto head-unit that has an Aux-in, as those are made to run on 12V directly and are, well, cheap.
Which Spotify library to use for headless Linux audio player box?

Change country to make Nest Hub activate AirPlay?
1 project | reddit.com/r/googlehome | 22 May 2022
Apple Music doesn’t provide AirPlay support so you’d need a hardware bridge such as a Starling Hub or a software bridge such as AirConnect. I’ve tested the latter on Windows and it works, but it’s a bit ‘hacky’. Ideally you’d want it running on a server like a Raspberry Pi.
Tried out Apple Music for the first time and I fell in love, but lack of chromecast support is forcing my hand to switch back. What are you guys opinion of it?
1 project | reddit.com/r/apple | 16 Mar 2022
If you're technical you can check out AirConnect, run it on your Mac in the background and have your Chromecast/Google Products show up as Airplay targets
Is it possible to control Google Nest Mini Speakers with Homebridge?
1 project | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 9 Mar 2022
Not related to HomeKit or Homebridge, but you can do what you want with this app (not mine): https://github.com/philippe44/AirConnect
Things to use my extra laptop for?

Yeah here’s the GitHub, and the readme has installation instructions. I actually installed it onto a raspberry pi lol https://github.com/philippe44/AirConnect
Chromecast / Apple Homepod integration
1 project | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 9 Feb 2022
For now, I have been able to create an AirPlay brige for my Chromecast (https://github.com/philippe44/AirConnect) but I don't know if this is possible.
Any way to push sound (from a random non-Sonos related app, directly) to a gen 1 Speaker from Iphone?
1 project | reddit.com/r/sonos | 27 Jan 2022
Or if you have a computer or a Raspberry Pi you can run this program https://github.com/philippe44/AirConnect
Sharing - Add Airplay to non-AirPlay Sonos speakers

Leveling up HomeKit
1 project | reddit.com/r/HomeKit | 14 Jan 2022
Does this mean technically Sonos speakers can also be retrofited with chromecast support?
1 project | reddit.com/r/sonos | 6 Jan 2022
https://github.com/philippe44/AirConnect this can do it if you have a pc to throw it on (or an rpi)
Adding AirPlay to Older Set Up
1 project | reddit.com/r/sonos | 29 Nov 2021
If you didn't want to get a new speaker and you're handy, AirConnect has worked well for me. Compared to AirPlay, stream startup is less immediate b/c it buffers for 1-2s, and the icon looks a tiny bit different in the AirPlay share sheet (it has a plus after the speaker name). But it sounds the same to me.
