Squeezebox & Raspberry Pi

Unread post by frog61 » Wed Mar 18, 2015 11:01 am

Hi all
So I've been looking at getting some Sonos players for a while now, however a friend of mine has turned several raspberry pi's into squeezeboxes and am led to beleive they do the same thing for a fraction of the cost.

Does anyone have any experiance with these?
I presume, just speakers would be required to add?
That and a usb wifi stick?
How is it all controlled? remote, ipad etc?

Everything works...

Synology + Logitech Media Server (LMS) => wifi (via some router) => (Raspberry Pi + DAC) => Any old hifi system. With remote = iPeng (not free but pleasant) or standard Logitech remote (free but lite) on iPhone/iPad...

Synology + Audio Station => wifi (via some routeur) => Airport Express (16/44) or (Rapberry Pi + DAC) => Any old hifi system. With Synology DS Audio as a remote on iPhone/iPad...

I use both solution ($100 each) with Qobuz (LMS), Deezer (LMS), MP3, FLAC, WAV, 16/24bit (Airport limited to 16 bit). Deezer for MP3 ans Qobuz for WAV 16/24bit

On my Raspberry Pi => Squeezeplug + Max2Play + Wifi + Pi-DAC+

Kind regards,

I have just started using Deezer to listen digital music. I am also using Synology DS214PLAY and HEGEL Integrated Amplifier H160 with built in DAC to listen music stored on my NAS.
I connect Synology to Hegel via USB. I want to install Deezer plugin on Synology214PLAY and listen them on my speakers connected to my DAC.

How can I make Deezer work on DSPLAY214 DSM5.1 for such a configuration(using Synology like a stream server)?

The system will work as stated below;
User Interface On PC(browser) --> Deezer Plugin On Nas(fetches music data from Internet) --> DAC --> B&W CM10 Speakers..
