For Music Lovers, From Music Lovers

Volumio project was born in late 2013, out of frustration by the lack of valid solutions to emancipate digital music playback from ordinary PCs, usually big, loud machines with poorly performing softwares for music streaming.

We wanted the flexibility to control our music through web interfaces, the ease of managing it all in a single place and the possibility to move beyond PCs and towards better performing machines. But, above all we longed for a software crafted and dedicated to maximize audio quality at bit-perfection level.

We decided it was time to build our own audiophile music player.

The first Rasperry PI model was just been released and we started developing a minimal audio-oriented Linux Distribution called RaspyFi as a side project.  We made it available via a small blog and, to our great surprise, the response was amazing.

At that moment, we finally realized we were not alone in our quest for our ideal audiophile music player.

Volumio was born. A side project turned quickly into a full-time commitment,  a small software evolved rapidly into a multi device operating system and a small team is now an amazing community of 200k music lovers.

Everything we do is driven by our love for music and our mission is to continuously research and improve in the field of audio system to always provide our community the best possible music experience.

Our Values

Open Source & Free

We strongly believe that Free and Open Source Software is not an ethical and philosophical choice, it is above all a path towards never-ending product improvement in the medium and long term. We don’t aim at becoming a simple business like many other out there. We aim at building a community, a movement towards a continuously better audio products, and we believe collective collaboration and freedom of participation is the best way to get there.

Product Excellence

We believe Volumio should be founded upon 3 main product features: sound quality, ease of use, ability to play any kind of music source.  Volumio is often referred as a “no-frills” Audiophile Music Player, and this is one of the most appreciated aspects of it. As in many other engineering and social fields of applications, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and we’re committed to keep it that way.

Audio Education

There’s no other field in technology that relies on myths and weak information as the audio industry. Our goal is to promote a scientific, where possible, approach to digital audio. We believe critical thinking and user education on audio can make a difference, and we will never stop researching, improving and spreading new knowledge.
