    So far very happy with the setup.

    How do you find the Kef LS50 speakers? I was toying with the idea of replacing my floorstanding Missions which take up rather too much space with some smaller speakers. Was thinking of giving the LS50 speakers an audition. Aesthetically I rather like the rose gold cones!

    This is one of the ugly monster stacks I've built. This one includes:
    • Two pi's
    • 2 relays
    • 2 100w mini amps
    • Shared power supply for the amps


    It may not look pretty, but it doesn't matter as it's all hidden away discretely. They are connected to in ceiling speakers in the various rooms, and configured so the various amps turn on/off with the players.

    All in all I have 10 separate zones running smoothly.
    Was that single "ugly monster stack" for 2 zones or more?

    That means 5 squeezelite sessions on each rpi.
    10 zones might be overkill but using two devices for that is imho a good idea..

    But how do you get 10 zones from two amps? And two pi's with two line outs?

    I really like these speakers too. Beware that the online price from KEF Direct fluctuates periodically. They were down to $999 around the holidays last year, but that might have been a one time deal.
    Living Room: Allo Digione Player (Wired), Max2Play w/LMS Server 7.9 and SqueezeLite, into Pioneer Elite VSX 80, KEF LS50's, SVS SB12-NSD Subwoofer
    Harmony Smart Remote w/Hub
    Dining Room: KEF Q100
    Anywhere Else As Needed: Boom
    Router: Asus RT-N56U

    Thanks for the inspiration for my Garage Boom2....


    Raspberry Pi 3 with HifiBrrry Amp2+ piggy backed, with a Meanwell PSU. PiCorePlayer running as SqueezeLite player and Server.

    The speakers were Pioneer car speakers left over from years ago....along with 9mm plywood left from lining my shed.
