Logitech discontinued its line of Squeezebox smart radios last year, but you can build your own version. DIY enthusiast Emmaanuel shows off how to turn a Raspberry Pi into a Squeezebox system complete with speakers and a case.
The build works with the Logitech Media Center so you can wirelessly stream music. From there, you’ll just need a Raspberry Pi, a case, some buttons, a Wi-Fi dongle and some speakers. Once you’ve got it all together, you install a Squeezebox emulator on the Raspberry Pi, and you’re ready to go.
The end result is a small, portable stereo you can stream music to from your computer and take just about anywhere with you. It’s a nice, self-contained little system, but if you don’t use Squeezebox, you should be able to get it working with AirPlay instead.
