About to refurbish a vintage radio

Hello,

I am about turn a vintage radio into an internet radio using a Raspberry Pi and Amp Hat. I have put together the attached document as a starting point and would really appreciate any feedback or input that anybody would like to offer.

I am new to the Raspberry world and this is just my second build. I previously built a Rasberry NAS unit for my home network. For the most part, that seems to be working quite well.

Thanks for your help!

Where's the document?
maybe an image version is better?
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"

Hi @LTolledo,

Doc should be there now. Not sure why it didn't show on the first try. Sorry for the confusion.

OK, got a chance to read it finally.

I already have several Volumio setups

and contemplating on raising it to the next level (adding 3.5" screen and a rotary encoder for Volume and selection) .
I've already got the other hard ware.. just finding time to get it all together, in a good boxed setup ;)
