hi everyone i have a few questions if rune can be the answer for me i had a little bit of a look but i cant fine any obvious answers sorry if i missed any answers
i already own 1x pi3, 2x pi zero W, a pHAT BEAT (possible portable or mini player for kitchen) pi based equipment (no pi or linux expert)
have 2 running av amps both with built in DACs more than good enough for what i need and have hdmi, optical and coax digi in plus std analog
also currently have 50-60gb collection of mp3 music plus Tidal account but could switch to another provider possibly
android phone or tablet as controller
I'm looking to replace my squeeze box system and had a dabble with chrome-cast audios but its not a very functional system. i like a good quality sound but no audiophile just like a good sound on a budget.
my conseopt is
pi3 as main player in living room on best amp and mp3 server over hdmi (memory stick or drive with mp3s)
1x pi zero w in the bedroom as player to amp over hdmi
1x pi zero w with pHAT BEAT as a player
my questions are
1. can rune audio run on a pi zero w ok for playback?
2. can rune handle in sync multi device plaback?
3. do i need to worry about SD card Read/write or can rune run in the ram?
4. what is the max audio rate over hdmi? do i need to run a dac if both my amps have them
that's all i can think of at the moment but would love to hear your input and if you can answer any of my questions
