I'm interested to put together a decently attractive touchscreen player with amp (essentially a Squeezebox Touch replacement), and looking for advice.
- Raspberry Pi
- HiFiBerry Amp/+
- 7" (ish) touch screen
- Attractive case
- Music (FLAC) from attached hard drive or NAS (with Ethernet or WiFi)
- RuneAudio - works well for me for a non-touch solution.
I see nice solutions/instructions online for putting together a Pi and touchscreen, and nice cases available. However, it doesn't look like they'd fit the Amp as well. And trying to build in a drive as well just complicates matters.
- No 3d printer or knowledge
- Have a soldering iron, but have never done anything finer than tinning speaker wire (and messily, at that)
- Not too handy.
If anyone has advice or can point me to help, I'm willing to (fumble and) learn and practice. (Also willing to pay a modest premium to someone who can deliver a complete solution.) Any help appreciated.
