I just wanted to drop some kudos to the team for creating balenaSound. I have been looking for YEARS for a suitable solution for setting up multi-room audio without buying a bunch of amps and running miles of speaker wires through my house. (Or going broke buying Sonos, just so I can throw it all away when they stop supporting it.)
It took me a grand total of 45 minutes to setup balenaSound on 4 Raspberry Pis and connect them throughout my house to boom-boxes and our main stereo. I didn’t even have to buy anything because I already had the RPis and aux cables on hand. Before dinner time, I had the entire house filled with music!
@tmigone, great work, man! And same to whoever else works on this project.
I am thinking of trying my hand at contributing to the project. I’ve never done any open source contributions before, despite having been in the IT field for more than 20 years. So this will be a fun and interesting challenge. I’ve been trying to engage with the forums and issue tracking to get more familiar with the project. Hopefully that has been a positive overall. And I’ve been reviewing the code when I have time to block out the world for a few minutes at a time.
Thank you for a great solution!
