    Watching the development of the bluetooth streaming to multi squeezelite player made me wonder if the next step could be for Max2play to include analogue input through USB soundcard. I don’t know how you pulled this off but I’m thinking it had to do with a variation of the waveinput plugin. I know some people were able to get it to work with a cirrus or wolfson soundcard but that audio interface is hard to get where I live. I’ve attempted unsuccessfully to install waveinput, liquidsoap, darkice and icecast2 on a Pi3 with a USB soundcard and was wondering if that would not be an interest from Max2play to develop such a plugin to help the non-programmers like me.

    Ideally I would like to stream vinyls in lossless and preferably in 24/96 from a turntable to squeezelite devices.

    Hi robi,
    Sorry about the late response. I moved your topic to the Ideas/Wishes forum. We will consider this request in future development.

    Definitely a +1 from me. Would be great to include Chromecast Audio or Record Players. Especially, because the Bluetooth plugin is really unstable for me (rpi3 with Google Pixel and ue Boom 2).

    https://iotsblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/25/wireless-streaming-vinyl-to-squeezebox/ is a great starting point.

    This is not straight forward working for Pulseaudio, unfortunately, especially for digital (S/PDIF) input.

    Count me in. That would be pretty smart to enable a Line In or similar (SPIF?) via Plug In. And then my Cirrus card would show it’s full potential.

    This is what I’m looking at right now as well, I have the UCA-222 that was mentioned in the iotsblog posted above. Does anyone know how to get the squeeze server in Max2Play to play the stream from the UCA… Also is it possible to auto run the stream on start up. I would honestly like to move to a HiFiBerry DAC+ ADC (https://www.hifiberry.com/shop/boards/hifiberry-dac-adc/) instead of the USB input in the future

    Hi everyone,

    just a quick update on Waveinput with Max2Play: If you use the Waveinput plugin in the LMS, enter „wavin:plughw:1“ as the URL when adding a favorite. The number behind „plughw:“ corresponds to the slot assigned to your sound card. Use the „arecord -l“ command (small L) to find out which one it is.
