Re: Streaming music

Re: Streaming music

One I’ve built myself using a Raspberry Pi computer with two 1Tb hard drives. It cost less than £200 and uses about 5W of power so I let it run 24/7. The music player is another RPi running moOde...

Re: I need a fix...

Re: Panasonic G VARIO 12-32mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH Mega O.I.S Lens, Black.
