Well, I have been a Sonos fan for many years now, and have had almost all of their stuff, and its not bad, but at the same time rather expensive.

I like building my own speakers and amps, but it has always been a little difficult to implement streaming audio in it.

I recently decided to try and look again for something that I could use in my current setup, and for a little single speaker project, and I stumbled over Arylic (https://www.arylic.com/).

I decided to give it a shot, and ordered the amp kit, and a single wifi audio receiver (https://www.arylic.com/collections/frontpage/products/up2stream-wifi-audio-receiver-module-dlna-airplay-analog-output).
It was not very expensive, so why not give it at try ?

I wont bother you with a unpacking experience, but everything was packed as it should.

First I decided to give the wifi audio receiver (https://www.arylic.com/collections/frontpage/products/up2stream-wifi-audio-receiver-module-dlna-airplay-analog-output) a go, because the single speaker project is not at the right stage at the moment.
Power connected, and audio out from my DSP filter.


Closed the amp again. It’s a 4x10 W class A diy, and also diy speakers.


Installed the 4STREAM app on my Iphone, and after…3 minutes I was playing music from my NAS, local radio stations and music from my phone.
And playing .flac directly from my MacBook was just as easy.

That little board is really doing the trick. I cant wait to get on with the single speaker project.

And the next orders on both another A (https://www.arylic.com/collections/frontpage/products/up2stream-wifi-bt-amp-board)MP (https://www.arylic.com/collections/frontpage/products/up2stream-wifi-bt-amp-board) and wifi module is for sure on the way, it only the amount I'm thinking on.
And yes – I have already sold my Sonos.
