Ok, so recently my 5.1 sound system has been playing up (partly playing 5.1 sound/not at all) and i have been looking at replacing it with something like the Yamaha RX-V679BL https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-V679BL ... 00VIRG3GO , I then realized that i have a spear raspberry pi 3 just laying around doing nothing and wondered if can turn this into an audio receiver like the Yamaha.
The ideal outcome of the project would be:
- to receive the audio via an optical cable or HDMI possible from my Samsung smart tv
- at least 5 speakers and a sub
- to be able to handle Dolby Digital, DTS etc
- come close the features of the yamaha rx-v679BL minus to video features of course
