    I am interested in feeding the squeezebox server with the signal of my analog turntable. The DAC+ ADC Pro has an input-function and I am wondering if there is a way.

    Using 2 Raspberry Pi 3 and 2 Zero W as a Multiroom system.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Hi hans,

    the mentioned link worked for me so far – using the ADC with an „logitech bluetooth adapter“/“direct-line-in“ by mobile phone.

    Be carful about the wavin-favourite-url which has to be namend „wavin:sysdefault“ instead of „wavin:default“ in my case – as this is the name of my card named under „audioplayer/advanced options/soundcard“ in max2play.

    Sound has a lag of up to 5 sec before starting/stopping playback. / Volume-output on mobile-phone has to be very low, otherwise there will be peaks & scratches in the playback – this might be solved in regulating the inputpeak somewhere, but i haven’t found the option yet.

    good luck!

    Well, no luck so far from my side.

    Using the Rpi 3 and a preamp with my turntable and following the procedures of the mentioned link.

    Streaming works fine (spotify, radio etc.) but the analog input does not work. I tried wavin:default and wavin:sysdefault, both are not working.

    Any hints are welcome 🙂

    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.

    Hi MarioM

    Thanks for the tip, were you using Raspbian or a M2P build?
    With M2P i have setup a LMS without the player locally installed but I can’t this working; my Squeezelite Player syncs with LMS and plays the waveinput favorite but nothing is playing through.

    Hi Kane,

    I tested it with the Max2Play distribution and the HiFiBerry DAC+ ADC. For it to work, the LMS must run on the device that has the sound card with input attached.
