That's how my current setup is now. Two Pi dedicated for movies and music, running OSMC and Volumio respectively. I had been using OSMC for both movies and music and was quite happy with it, however, after hearing volumio, no going back to OSMC for music.The BOSS is available just about Rs. 3800 (including tax and shipping from Bangalore to Pune).
However this works only with Volumio and DietPi.
Now, I intended to mount this on my existing RPI 3 which is running OpenElec, but that is likely NOT to work.
This means, I need to buy another RPI +SD card dedicated for music.
Volumio comes with UPNP support. This means I should be able to (using home WiFi network) be able to stream songs from my Android devices to this Volumio, correct?
The challenge right now is to somehow share a single hard disk with two Pis. I have a temporary arrangement running where the hard disk is connected to the Pi running OSMC and is shared over the network. Volumio reads the hard disk as a Nas device. Not finding it very reliable though. Not sure if I can make it more reliable by connecting the hard disk to a router with a USB port.
