Newbie question: Line-level input to Moode
#1
Hi all, 

I'm looking to refurbish a vintage vinyl player (Bush/Dansette), adding a Raspberry Pi with X400 amplifier to support all the usual streaming and digital feeds.  

I've installed Moode on the Pi, and even though I'm still feeling my way around, all the digital feeds and supporting functionality seem to meet my needs.

I've searched all relevant posts, but I can't find any capability to take a line-level feed into Moode (I assume I'll need a pre-amp).  

Use case: use the manual control on the turntable to trigger a GPIO event and switch Moode input to the pre-amp output when the record plays.  
Even better if, when the turntable automatically switches itself off,  Moode mutes or returns to "lastplayed input"

Thanks for any pointers...

Raspberry Pi does not have a line-in. You would prolly need to use a board like Hifiberry DAC+ADC that has analog line-in. moOde supports this board and can act as a pre-amp switching between analog-in and DAC+.

This is a limitation of the Raspberry Pi hardware. There is no line input.
I looked at your x400 and that appears to not have any line input option either.

There are add on HAT boards that allow a line level input. Though this one has a dac bundled already.

While this one has preamp included.

I've not used either so cannot comment as to compatibility with moode but I recall the hifi-berry has been discussed on the forums....

I see Tim replied while I was finding links...he's quick :-)
