    Hi. I’m setting up a multi-room setup with Max2Play and five Raspberry Pi 3’s (and IQaudio DigiAMP+), and I’m wondering if I should buy some budget class-10 microSD cards for the pis, or if I should spend more money to buy faster cards. To clarify, I know that Max2Play recommends class-10 cards, but online hardware reviews say that some types of class-10 microSD cards are faster than others. How much does read/write speed matter with Max2Play? Thanks in advance.

    Hi geoff,

    Buying different SD card could impact the booting speed of Max2Play. Moreover, the decision of buying specific SD card rather than others, depends on what plugins and application you would like to run on yours Pis, and buying the cheaper options could impact the performance:

    Please check the following link:

    And we suggest also have a look at our SD Cards from our shop as the recommended option:
