Hello,

I am about turn a vintage radio into an internet radio using a Raspberry Pi and Amp Hat. I have put together the attached document as a starting point and would really appreciate any feedback or input that anybody would like to offer.

I am new to the Raspberry world and this is just my second build. I previously built a Rasberry NAS unit for my home network. For the most part, that seems to be working quite well.

Thanks for your help!

Hi @LTolledo,

Doc should be there now. Not sure why it didn't show on the first try. Sorry for the confusion.

OK, got a chance to read it finally.

I already have several Volumio setups

and contemplating on raising it to the next level (adding 3.5" screen and a rotary encoder for Volume and selection) .
I've already got the other hard ware.. just finding time to get it all together, in a good boxed setup ;)
