BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

As a stop-gap, have you considered Chromecast Audio? It is cheap enough to be a backup option. And the audio quality is really quite good.

another good option would be Rpi based streamers. Check out Allo digione player (only streamer with SPDIF and BNC output), or Boss player (streamer with DAC stage).

Chromecast is brilliant for streaming stuff from the mobile. Its become one of the most used sources in my setup.

Offtopic, what is the best way to stream content on NAS to CCA? Any pointers will be helpful

Have you tried BubbleUPnP? This or any similar app that supports chromecast should be able to get your content moving.

I haven't, will try it out tomorrow.

Does it need to be running in the background or i can just add few songs to the current playlist and can switch off the phone? And can multiple people add to the current playing list?

No you cannot switch off the phone. The phone and the app needs to be running. I have not tried a common play list as we all have our own, might try it tomorrow.
