ESP Muse proto + hifiberry AMP2

Can I use the Hifiberry AMP2 on the ESP MUSE PROTO or is that something that is completely out of the question anyway? I currently use a RPI + HifiBerry AMP2 with OSMC as my multi-room audio system and am wondering if can replace it with ESP Muse Proto but keep using the AMP2…

hi and welcome,

I’m not sure to understand the question, Do you want to replace the Raspberry Pi of your AMP2 by a ESP32 Proto and control it with Squeezelite?
It should be possible by cabling some I2S signal to the AMP2 and set them in Squeezelite.

I like this idea

thanks for replying! :slight_smile: I was just thinking if the awesome ESP Muse proto device can help me simplify my set up.
My current setup:

  • local music on Plex server
  • OSMC running on RPI which connects to Plex server to stream music
  • RPI on which OSMC runs has HifiBerry AMP2 on it
  • AMP2 sends signal to speaker switch for a wired whole-house audio system.

It works, but I am not happy with with how OSMC sits in the middle, because the connection between Plex and OSMC is not the best. So, I was thinking if I can replace the RPI with a ESP32 Proto, run Squeezelite on it. However, I am not sure if the AMP2 can be “put on” the ESP32 Proto (in fact, I doubt it). Or if I can just get rid of the AMP2 as well.
