    My Whole House Audio Setup

    I have been lurking here for a while so, I thought it might be time to share my audio setup.

    First I want to shout out to all who have labored to keep this system alive. I have researched network audio systems for years and this is still hands down the best option out there. IMHO

    Whole House Audio - It Rocks!

    Bedroom
    Raspberry Pi Zero W - PicorePlayer 5.01
    JustBoom AMP Zero Hat
    2X Polk Audio OWM3 Bookshelf Speakers

    Living Room
    2x Raspberry Pi 3B+ - PicorePlayer 5.01 - Volume Synced
    2x HiFiBerry DAC+ RCA
    2x Logitech Z623 200 Watt 2.1 Home Speaker System

    Family Room
    Raspberry Pi 3B+ - HDMI Out through TV ARC channel to receiver - PicorePlayer 5.01/JiveLite
    Denon AVR-X3500H Receiver
    2x Polk T50 150 Watt Home Theater Floor Standing Tower Speakers
    2x Polk Audio PSW10 10" Powered Subwoofer
    1x Polk Audio CSiA4 Center Channel Speaker
    4x Alesis M1 Active Mk2 for Surround side and rear

    Office PC
    Squeezelite-X
    Logitech Z623 200 Watt 2.1 Home Speaker System

    Server PC
    LMS v7.9.3

    Control is either through Squeezelite-X or Squeezer App on Android.

    All players are synced for Power on/off and music select.

    Hello,

    Very nice setup! Do you happen to know where could I get zero amp hat? It seems to be sold out in many place.

    Do you have any control over jivelite? I am using ir receiver and harmony remote and it works pretty well.

    Jursi, I don't know what happened to Justboom. Their website has been non functional for me lately. You can find HiFiBerry MiniAmp on Ama$on or on their website. I have not tried their MiniAmp but like their other HATs. Edit: The MiniAmp is only 3W compared to 40W for the JustBoom. There seems to be some availability on Intl sites.

    I am currently controlling JiveLite with a wireless mouse. I don't have to use it very often since I am controlling that player with either Squeezlite-X or Squeezer.

    Nice setup! I have to agree with you, LMS is currently the best implementation out there, way better than play-Fi, more flexible than sonos. It is stable, its plugins are a major advantage, you can use legacy hardware (yeah, I’m looking at you first Gen AppleTV). Its interface is now seeing a major revamp with the Material skin plugin, allowing better touch integration.

    About your setup, i haven’t thought about using HDMI ARC. Does it mean your tv has to be open for the zone to work? If so, triggering the zone opens up the TV?

    Now, If only paradigm could enable squeezelite on their PW speakers...
