Step 3: Install Volumio

Once downloaded, un-zip the file and open Win32 Disk Imager, or similar program. Then, select the SD card and click “Write”. After that has completed, eject the SD card and put it into the Raspberry Pi.Raspberry Pi Airplay Reciever schematic

Step 4: Finishing

Connect the Ethernet cable into the R-Pi and into your router. Connect the audio cable into a speaker/Hi-Fi system, then connect the R-Pi to a power source. Wait about 2 minutes, then, try streaming audio to it, but selecting “Volumio” or similar in the Airplay device selection list. To edit the settings of the R-Pi, go to volumio.local in your browser.
