ZeroPi and moode-audio
#1
Hello,

I‘m looking for a „minimal solution“ to bring my audio files from NAS via RJ45 (SMB/CFIS) to [moode-audio] to my Audiolab M-One amplifier (integrated DAC ESS9018K2M) via USB (A-B). 

Does this tiny guy work with moode-audio? — > link: ZeroPi. It seems that it contains all I need for my project. 

PS: I still have an Odroid C1+, but if I‘m right this is not for moode? With another audio distribution it works in this way (up to DSD256). But I like to test moode.  Smile

Regards,
Oliver

Moode is designed for the Raspberry Pi, and while it might work on other boards it won't be supported.

Thanks for your reply.

Only for better understanding: subject single-board pc is new for me and I thought FriendlyElecs ZeroPi or Orange Pi Zero were counterparts to Raspberry and suitable for moode. I know Odroids are "out". Smile

So, do I have to buy an original RasPi or can I even go with an Orange Pi if ZeroPi won't work, too? (knowing about no support)

Quoting from the moodeaudio.org home page: "Audiophile-quality music playback for the wonderful Raspberry Pi family of single board computers." 

That's "Raspberry Pi family" as in "has a Raspberry Pi™ board inside."

Here's a quick test: download the latest ready-to-use ISO image of moOde and flash it to a uSD card as described on the home page. If it it boots and runs on a random brand-X singleboard computer of your choice, great. If not, you have your work cut out for you. 

Someone with experience using Linux and with porting system software to different host environments should be able to get most (but not all) of moOde's functionality running on a system of their choice. With every release of a new version of moOde, they'd have to do it again, possibly having to sort out a new wrinkle each time.

Candidly, given the questions you are asking, I don't think you are such a person. 

Further, this is not the forum for learning about the differences between various single-board computers (SBC). I suggest you start with 
whatever forum exists for the SBC of your choice.

If you are looking for small and cheap, why not just buy a RaspberryPi ZeroW or possibly a RaspberryPi 3A+, boot moOde, and enjoy the music?

Hi Kent,

I apologise if I have expressed my unhappy. Smile

To buy an Odroid C1+ was a quick decision (low price offering) knowing RuneAudio is working "out of the box" as I've described above.

I was assuming that the PC must be from the Raspberry Foundation, i.e. an original RasPi, not a derivative. The reason therefor is I'd have to buy it yet. Now I'm clear.

To optimize RuneAudio's operation with an MPD app, I'm currently making adjustments to MPD, nginx/lighttpd via SSH. So I'm willing to learn the necessary things. Smile

That was not the intention of my question.

In replying to your question about Pi Zero and moode. I have recently set a Pi Zero WH and a DAC for my daughter. She has an older stereo in her vehicle with no Bluetooth connectivity. Set up moOde and now in her vehicle she can connect to bluetooth and play her Apple Music while she is driving. The great thing is that it will also work with a NAS as I tested it with my NAS solution before giving her the PiZero solution. She loves it and uses it all the time she is driving in her vehicle. I was going to buy the same pi zero and dac and set up for myself at home. I decided not to go the zero route and used a PI 2B and PIHIFI Dac and am using it now.  Works beautifully with my NAS. I also tried Volumio but in order to use Bluetooth you need to by a subscription but not with MoOde. I have switched to MoOde only.
