I’m a n00b to Balena and Raspberry Pi, and I’ve been educating myself to find the right architecture to do multiroom audio that can handle two airplay inputs at the same time, and route them to different subsets of speaker outputs. For example, I’d like to:
- Set up four rooms with a Pi and pair of speakers in each room (rooms A, B, C and D)
- Send music from airplay source 1 to rooms A and B, and at the same time send airplay source 2 to rooms C and D.
- No mixing of sources 1 and 2 will be done, so each of the four rooms can have one and only one source sent to it at a time.
- Change the routing of audio sources to the rooms on-the-fly, via web browser or iOS app.
Can Balena do this? All the examples of multiroom audio that I’ve read about or seen in videos send one music source to one or all sets of speakers.
If Balena’s not a great choice for this kind of setup, what might be?
Cheers, and thanks, in advance!
