Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

hi Ronnie, great, lots of good advice, thanks for that. I misunderstood your question about location - opps, i'm in the UK. However, I'm not so sure about buying an amplifier, I want to keep this quite small, so need to identify the right DAC/Amp combo that fits onto the Pi. Not sure if asnyone else...

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

They are Denon speakers - 6 ohm impedance. Quite old, but still perfectly serviceable.
Location - attached to the wall in my living room, RPi will be in the same room

thanks

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

Hi Ronnie, Thanks for the reply - i have a premium Spotify account, so all sorted in that respect. My phone OS is Android, although i also have a Kindle fire, which would be good to use as well, if possible. Not sure i fully understand what you mean by connection to the speakers - but it will be a p...

Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

Hi All, I am looking for some advice on how to build a Spotify streaming device with a RPi. I would like to connect the RPi to my speakers (via cables) and have a headless set up where I can play my music from Spotify and potentially internet radio stations, if possible. I would like to use my mobil...

Re: RPi 3 going portable - suitable battery

By a very rough calculation - I'd need about 12 Ah at the very most, so the link posted above looks good to me.
Thanks for the help guys

Re: RPi 3 going portable - suitable battery

Great, thanks for the suggestions.
Probably running for 2 - 3 hours max I'd imagine.

Cheers

RPi 3 going portable - suitable battery

Hi all, I would like to run my RPi 3 portable and I am looking for some suggestions regarding suitable batteries to run it. I'll also have attached GPS and IMU sensors, which will draw some extra current. There seem to be a few battery packs suitable for the Pi, like this one https://www.amazon.co.u...

Re: GPS time from ublox neo-6m

What is the price of such a camera ? Because I'm guessing that if you can afford that for your project you can probably afford a SBC (or small laptop) with USB3.0 which I will guess you might need if you are going to transfer 10x 5MP pictures per second. The price is in the same bracket as a decent...

Re: GPS time from ublox neo-6m

Hi, thanks for the links, i'll check them out. Time accuracy needs to be high, I'm not sure how much drift over a few hours is likely, but i'll be comparing and matching it to other GPS data, of a higher positional accuracy from a high grade GPS rx, so need the times to match up. The higher accuracy...

GPS time from ublox neo-6m

Hi All, I'm looking into how I might set the time on my RPi 3 using a Ublox neo-6m gps receiver as the time source. I need to update the time on an almost continual/rolling basis as I need the RPi to have the latest time from the gps, I don't want any drift of the time to take place as might occur i...

Re: Geotagging photos

Thanks for the reply, i'll check that out
I don't seem to have the permissions to store the images on the A6000, so images are currently stored locally on the Pi. In the future I'd probably have to have a storage device attached for photos as there is likely to be quite a few images.

Geotagging photos

Hi All, this is my first post and I'm new to all things Raspberry Pi related, so bear with me :) I would like to capture a series of photographs and geotag them with GPS position information. Ultimately, I'd also like to add IMU data, but I think for the moment i'll start with the GPS side of things...
