Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

Just heard that there is a new Pi2.

Quad Core Memory, 1Mb RAM with same footprint and price as the B+.

Can't say how that affects Volumio, but it sure will be an improved platform if it does not require too much more power or cooling.

I just saw this in an email from a large vendor offering it for sale at $35 US , so I suspect it is valid.

Quad Core processor, not memory of course.

It's a great news indeed... I would not praise its performance, before looking at the real world speed (we're still looking at a 35$ dollar thing)...
Nonetheless, just ordered 3 of them...
Volumio will support it really soon...

That is great to hear. Of course Volumio is running great on the Pi even before the upgrade, especially with AlsaEqual, but it will be fun to see what can happen with the extra power.

Thank you SO much for your rapid porting!! Grazie tanto!! :D
(My RPi B have choppy problems especially playing the streaming radio.)
I'm looking very much forward for the arrival of my RPi2 (from RS).

Doing last tests... I want to see if I2S DACs are compatible with this new kernel...
