Well, he is almost 8 and is smarter than me by a mile, trying to brew up cold fusion in the kitchen etc.
For his Xmas present, we are going to build a pair of BBC LS3/5A clones, most of the parts for which are sourced out through Arts Express, basic 4” mid and a little horn tweeter and basic 2 way crossovers.
I had vacillated about getting him a little streaming amp but since I had built several Rpi Roon endpoints I thought that it might be fun for us to build a streaming amp with the Hifiberry amp HAT.
Honestly, he doesn’t have the patience yet to slog through Roon, but I’ll probably drop the codec in there for later. It will be hardwired ethernet for good connection.
What I’ve never done before is use Spotify connect, wifi, or Bluetooth as a signal input. Is it also a pretty straightforward codec to copy and paste? My guess is his generation will be all about “Alexa play Sirius XM.” So, I guess if I had an Echo dot and a Bluetooth codec, I’d be good to go. Does such a thing exist?
Thanks in advance!
