Volumio got a brand new website

Ladies and gentlemen. You might have noticed that Volumio got a brand new website!

There were many reasons why we choose to refresh our online spot a bit, and here they are.

The main and most important purpose of our new website is to serve our community better.

What's new in our brand new website

One shortcoming of our old website was that information was hard to find, and sometimes confusing. We received many suggestions from the community asking to improve navigations through the website. The subject people were complaining the most is that pieces of information related to MyVolumio were hard to find. Our solution? Create a 101 section of all things Volumio here.

 

With this new redesign, we want to offer visitors a clear overview of what Volumio is and why it's great for their music. Also, we wanted to explain in detail what MyVolumio is, how it works and give a clear and transparent overview of the different plans.  And yes, a clear and immediate of the pricing options, see them here.

On top of that, we added a coherent styling for all our Dropshipping products, to offer our partners in the shop an even nicer showcase and help them get their excellent products showcased as they deserve. We also hope that this new Shop experience will help the least expert to have a clear idea on which device might best suit their needs. So, without further do, head on the Shop page.

As you know, Volumio could not be there without its dedicated and passionate team. We're really excited to announce that even more awesome people joined us in the last few months, and we thought they deserved a place of honor in our Team page. Get to know us at the Team page.

Another great area of revamp went into the OEM page. We had huge satisfactions this year with our Oem Program, cooperating with cutting edge Audio Brands like Pro-Ject Audio Systems and Mini-DSP. What a better occasion to showcase what we achieved toghether than refreshing the OEM Page? Check it out here.

Last: we want to bring Volumio to exciting new levels, and to do that we want to attract every music lover out there. The more we are, the better.
So, yes, we went the extra mile with aesthetics, hoping to please the eyes of who's looking for their ideal Audiophile Music Player.

Enjoy!
