I really love how Volumio has progressed and that it is under constant development. Listening to users and baking in useful features really creates a buzz about a product. However, at this point I feel that Volumio is just not robust enough for me to use everyday. It constantly freezes up and seems very glitchy. I have tried various Dacs, Hats and ARM boards but the results are consistent across the board, even when I use the x86 image on my regular computer. Its very slow and buggy....for example switching from an Internet radio station to a music file often causes it to freeze up and requires a reboot. The volume may or may not work and music may or may not play on the first attempt. I love the features and everything else about it though...I'll keep trying in hopes that it will become more solid over time.
Yes, the complexity of the project has incresed significantly with this new version. All in all we just need a bit of time to iron all the weaknesses that such complexity brings, aka fix the bugs.. Therefore any feedback and bug report is super useful
