Hello,

I am looking all over for it. I previously saw listed here or somewhere else a raspberry pi like board, that had high audio built in and ran its own custom os that has squeezelite and other items built in.

Can anyone recall this board?

Edit: never mind, found: https://voltastream.com/

Thatís just another DAC HAT for a Pi

Hi d6jg,

Actually neither the VoltaStream ZERO nor the VoltaStream AMP1 are for the Pi they are both complete systems running linux

Both have on board i.MX6ULL SoC processors and can use the custom OS "PolyOS"

Why does the website refer to Raspberry then?

Apparently they're the "Next Step" from the Pi ;)

The OS comes with SqueezeLite so you can use them as a highly integrated player.
No LMS included (probably not a good idea anyway, given the memory size) so you'd need to run that on a different device.

But if you are looking for an additional player, especially with an integrated amplifier, it's quite nice. Probably the smallest package you can get for the job.
