Pi MusicBox is a bootable image that makes it easy to turn the Raspberry Pi into a Spotify Server.

Operate Spotify from your couch with this ready to eat software for the Raspberry Pi. A lot of people have problems getting the Pi to work as a remote Spotify-player. This bootable image makes it a lot easier. As a bonus, it includes AirTunes support.

Features:
● Working Spotify server based on Mopidy, which can be remotely controlled with a nice browser-interface, or with an MPD-client
● AirTunes streaming
● No need for tinkering, no need to use the Linux commandline
● USB Audio support (supporting all kinds of USB soundcards, speakers, headphones).
● The analog port works, but the sound quality is not great. Flat so to say. This is a hardware problem (to get the Pi as cheap as it is, they had to use cheap hardware to produce sound). An external USB soundcard is recommended for better sound quality.
● Wifi support (WPA, if the Pi-kernel supports your wifi-adapter)
● This image is also a great way to get started with tinkering for other ways of using the Pi as a Music playing device, because it solves a lot of problems. (Mopidy can e.g. be modified to play local music-files, but it's not enabled at the moment.)
