After a few weeks using Volumio I am still surprised by the quality of the device
I plugged it on my system ( Unisson Research Unico due with MaxMini ) and just played music with incredible sound
Ripping my cd collection is easy and lossless
Last but not least it’s really affordable if you want to listen to music without being ruined by esoteric electronics go ahead Volumio is for you.
What more can I say? The Volumio Primo just works. When I first found the Primo, I was looking for simplicity. I’m a vinyl guy, but I wanted to take advantage of hi-res audio. I wanted a Qobuz streamer with no frills – I wanted something where I could pick up my iPad / iPhone, open an app, and stream music to my sound system in the best quality possible. The Primo does exactly that. I utilize the USB out to transport bit perfect playback directly to my external DAC, but the Primo has an onboard DAC as well. It is perfect for everyone and will grow with your system. Not only that, but the user interface is incredible, and it definitely adds to the listening experience! Furthermore, to have a device where the software is constantly being improved by the amazing Volumio development team – what more can you ask for? If you are looking for a streamer to handle your digital library as well as hi-res audio streaming services, look no further than the Volumio Primo. You won’t be disappointed.
I have been playing music for a couple of weeks with the Primo. And wow, blown away by the quality of sound. Most of my music are flac files stored on a ssd. The primo is both a server and a streamer, perfect for my needs. Direct playback to my amplifier through the RCA output (very good!) and streaming to other devices via UPnP. At this price point a no brainer, excellent product!
