Volumio, what is it ?
Volumio is an Open Source operating system designed to play audio files with the best playback.
It works on many devices and is particularly suitable for SBC (Single Board Computer) such as Raspberry Pi. It is therefore also perfect to work on RaspTOUCH and RaspDAC.
Associated with one of our devices, it will become a real media player, remotely controllable via a mobile phone, a computer or a tablet, via the dedicated web application or for the Rasptouch directly via the touch screen of the latter.
Connected to your network, it will then become possible to stream your music to DLNA/Airplay from any device also connected to your network.

The image installed on this board includes several modifications to take advantage of the components used on Raspdac and Rasptouch.You can thus use your reader without prior technical manipulations which can be dissuasive to the néophites.
The main changes are :
- Precompiled and installed driver to synchronize DAC ES9028/38 hardware volume with Volumio
- OLED screen management script for reading information display
- Power management script to control the player with the power button
