New to Raspberry Pi. Know nothing about them, but they seem to have possibilities. I listen to music through my mobile phone and headphones. The music files are either .wav or .flac files. The problem with phones (mine is a Sony Android phone) is the poor quality of the headphone jack socket, and the sensitivity of the software. It constantly lowers volume by itself, cuts out by itself, interrupts with Google voice-overs and other things. No remedy offered on forums fixes these issues. So my question is - Could I use a Raspberry Pi as a music storage device for .wav and .flac music files, and also a player and headphone amplifer? If so, what are the aspects of the components on a Raspberry Pi that would lower the audio quality, compared to a mobile phone that plays .wav and .flac files? My vision is simply to replace the phone as my portable music player.
Thanks for your help
