I am amazed, in an ignorant how-did-they-do-that sort of way, at the Raspberry Pi. Obviously, there are quite a lot of things you could potentially do with it; a generic media server has already been bought up as a possibility. I, however, am interested in a more specialised server: a high-definition music streamer, providing bit-perfect outputs at better-than-CD sampling rates.
This would be accomplished through the exposed I2S bus mentioned on the wiki, which would be connected to a board such as this (http://www.twistedpearaudio.co.....m8804.aspx), which would convert the I2S input to a S/PDIF output. Ideally, I would hope this to be capable of 16 and 24-bit audio at 44.1,48,88.2 and 96khz sample rates.
Is this possible with an appropriate linux distribution?
