I was thinking along the lines of:
Raspberry Pi (OEM or install your own software)
Colour Screen for simple interface/Artwork display
Bitzie DAC
Headphone output
Line level output
Control via basic buttons or external PC, Smart phone etc

A step too far perhaps?
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

The biggest issue is the software support, it needs to be something that is supported easily and preferably out of the box. The experience of Moode and Cary shows what a burden software licensing and management can be, before we even start on technical support.

Hat wise there is a a lot cheap mass production boards that would seem to make a system more feasible option. I would be interested if Ian Canada's boards are hand assembled.

Sorry if I sound pessimistic.

The weakness of the Raspberry Pi's power supply arrangement and hat analogue will certainly be areas that will benefit from the Slee effect.

If you are interested Graham I can loan you my DAC hat for a month or two if you want to check out another product.

Steve, I'm sure we've still got things you've sent me over the years which I now can't find, so be very careful here... Wink

Perhaps best to loan it to John C and he can let me have a listen, and remove it from me when the time comes Wink

Came across this when I was looking into Volumio, the headless player I use with my PI and it reminded me of another thread on this Forum about Room Setups.
If you follow the link on that page to REW it seems that it is possible to measure your room's acoustics and 'see' what any physical changes you make do to it. Could be a useful tool if you have the hardware and patience!

Good tip Peter. I've got REW and it was helpful in positioning bass traps. It is great value if you have the mic, preamp, and cable already. The waterfall graphs helped me to understand my listening room's behaviour. I found averaging several mic positions close to my listening position (learnt from using Audyssey on my AVR) helped to get a consistent approach when changing things in the room.

REW is also handy for driver (loudspeaker) measurements for which I used my USB mic preamp and its headphone output.
