    Backyard deck system

    Oh the wonders of digital streaming!

    My backyard deck sound system:

    Source: LMS streamed to iPhone using iPeng with the iPhone set as the player. The iPhone is connected via bluetooth to the Pyle Street Blaster. The selection I was listening to when the picture was taken was a 24bit/96kHz download of the new Dawes release, so LMS was also downsampling the files on the fly. And it sounds very good.

    Yes! Here's how it works:

    First make sure that one is able to access LMS on the iPhone, in other words that the iPhone is on the same WiFi network as LMS

    then pair the iPhone and the Street Blaster together with bluetooth

    then using iPeng select the iPhone as the "squeezebox" player

    Finally listen to any music in the LMS library.

    Thanks for the clarification, Ralph.

    Just read that this is also possible on Android. Since I use OrangeSqueeze I only need to get the SqueezePlayer app.
    I might check this out.

    I think we have stumbled upon an whole underground Squeezebox movement: the LMS/smartphone/tablet powered Bluetooth speaker system. Now let's see who else comes forward to bring their system into the light.

    By the way, I noticed that you had the Band playing when you took the photo. What is about Americana and backyard systems?

    I also use the QrangeSqueeze app but I use it on a Nook and the Nook leaves a lot to desired especially when compared to either an iPhone or an iPad. However OrangeSqueeze is a really nice app.
