  • What's the chance Apple or a licensed third party will offer a subwoofer for the HomePod mini? | 2021-04-21
    Belkin is supposed to be working on one. Looks like it’ll be in the ~$100 range. The shairport-sync developers are working on AirPlay 2 support. Once they get that working you’ll be able to pick up a Raspberry Pi Zero W and a cheap USB to audio adapter for ~$15 combined and create your own AirPlay 2 receiver. Once Shairport supports it though I have a feeling you’ll see a ton of cheap made in China AirPlay 2 receivers show up on Amazon and you won’t have to build your own with a RPi.

    Shairport-sync (the major open-source airplay server) has been making progress on AirPlay 2 - so I wouldn't get my hopes up just yet, but maybe in the future it can do AP2.
    Yes, you can run multiple instances of the digital sources at the same time, for a total of four playing simultaneously (from the four DAC outputs on the Raspberry Pi.) The example you give of two instances of Spotify and two instances of AirPlay playing simultaneously is completely doable in the current version of the system. AmpliPi makes use of the open source projects shairport-sync for AirPlay, raspotify for Spotify, and pianobar for Pandora. It spins up multiple instances of these, and maps them to the four audio outputs from the Pi. From there, each output can be mapped to one or many amplified output zones (The base AmpliPi Controller has 6 output zones, up to 36 total output zones using AmpliPi Zone Expanders).
