RaspyFi ~ Headless Audio Player


RaspyFi is an open source linux distribution. It will transform your Raspberry Pi into an audiophile source, in 10 minutes without hassles. It comes ready to play, and it’s compatible with almost every USB DAC available. You can consider it as a Voyage-MPD version for Raspberry Pi. But it’s simpler to use and it has several other functionalities!

With RaspyFi you’ll be able to play your music library directly from an USB Storage or from your NAS. You can also listen to your favourite web-radios and scrobble your favourite tunes from Spotify, Last.fm and Soundcloud. You will be amazed about the sound quality! RaspyFi’s core feature is this. We are trying to get every bit of your music to play as accurate as can be, optimizing every aspect of the system.

RaspyFi supports asynchronous playback to take advantage of the latest DACS, it features a nice webgui you can use to configure it without hassles and to play your library from your pc, your smartphone or your tablet.

You can connect your little Raspberry Pi to your Audio System, sit on your couch, use your favourite device (Win,Mac,Android,iOS) as a remote control and enjoy your music as it is. With RaspyFi your Pi never sounded so good!

CloudTunes ~ Web Player For The Cloud


CloudTunes provides a unified interface for music stored in the cloud (YouTube, Dropbox, etc.) and integrates with Last.fm, Facebook, and Musicbrainz for metadata, discovery, and social experience. It is similar to services like Spotify, except instead of local tracks and the fixed Spotify catalog, CloudTunes uses your files stored in Dropbox and music videos on YouTube.

Tomahawk ~ Metadata Based Player


Tomahawk is a free multi-source and cross-platform music player. An application that can play not only your local files, but also stream from services like Spotify, Beats, SoundCloud, Google Music, YouTube and many others. You can even connect with your friends’ Tomahawks, share your musical gems or listen along with them. Let the music play!

Tomahawk is basically a player for music metadata. At its core it decouples the metadata about a song from the source and reassembles it for each user based on their individual music accessibility and rights. In short, given the name of a song and artist, Tomahawk will find the right source, for the right user at the right time. This fundamentally different approach to music enables a range of new music consumption and sharing experiences previously not possible.

Music Sources:

  • Local music library (MP3, Ogg, FLAC and many other formats)
  • Networked music libraries (other connected computers)
Subscription Music Services
Free Streaming / Music Promotion Platforms
Network/Cloud storage

Third party-developed resolvers have also been written for services like YouTube, Qobuz and others. We’ve also heard of digital music distributors writing their own for their internal CMSes to help them navigate and preview their content. That’s cool.
