Meridian SqueezeBox

Meridian would of course never make such a product, but using their latest product, the Meridian Explorer, we can do it ourselves. It is an async USB DAC (combined with SPDIF digital optical output), one of the hundreds of similar devices available nowadays. According to the information the 6 layer PCB is filled with audiophile grade components and powered by the XMOS L1 chip. There are already several reviews on the net (for instance here) and they all agree that this device sounds great. So what do we need to make the ultimate SqueezeBox? Basically you need a Raspberry Pi as core system, SqueezeLite for the actual work, iPeng to control it and of course the Logitech Media Server running on your NAS (but who hasn’t? 🙂 ). Good luck!
