    Streaming vinyl wirelessly to squeezebox receivers

    I just got myself recently a vintage turntable (Dual 731Q) and was wondering how to integrate it into my squeezebox setup, so that I could listen to my large vinyl collection everywhere in my home. Could not find anything in this forum or elsewhere, so I just started to build my own solution with a Raspberry Pi, a Behringer UCA222 and a pre-amp. I use Darkice and Icecast to transcode on-the-fly in feed the signal as a Internet Radio Stream into my Squeezeboxes.
    Raspberry, Behringer and pre-amp are small enough to hide everything behind the shelf, so that listeners only see the turntable.
    It absolutely rocks! I cant tell the difference between a 320kbps MP3, a 320kbps Deezer stream and my vinyl 320kbps stream. The turntable sounds probably a little less analytic, but warmer. Anyhow, I love to browse through my record collection, select a record, unpack it, flip it and then listen to the little crackling sound when the stylus finds the track. And all this wirelessly integrated into my squeezebox setup.

    Great solution (OK, I guess some hard-core audiophiles will have a fit, but... ).

    Does the pre-amp do the RIAA de-emphasis?

    I assumed it was as the UCA222 is line input.

    Want a webapp ? Get SqueezeLite-X ! https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post903953

    Yes, or you can use the version of the Behringer ADC that is made for phono:

    You could also use the Behringer UCA202 which is identical in spec to the 222 but ú10-15 cheaper.

    What is the difference?

    I already have all of the physical components used in this solution so would also be interested in a howto on the Pi setup.

    I use Vinyl Studio form Alpinesoft for the vinyl rip. I don't think it conflicts but it may be a config thing.
