Get this running myself

What do you have to do to get KSSI running for yourself?

  1. Buy a Raspberry PI 3 with power-supply, SD-card (min. 8 Gb.), and optionally a case.
  2. Buy an USB-audiocard to ensure good quality audio-card (I used Behringer, but IQaudIO is one of the other good options.
  3. Download the image for the KSSI-node from here
  4. Unzip the image and write to the SD-image (e.g. using Win32Imager)
  5. Put the Raspberry and USB-card together and insert the SD-card. This is now called a KSSI-node.
  6. Connect the KSSI-node using a networkcable to your local LAN-network
  7. Connect the Soundcard to your audio-system using the necessary cables (usually using RCA / Tulp)
  8. Power up the KSSI-node.

You should be able to see an Airplay-device with it’s default name.

  1. Download the KSSI commander from here
  2. Run the KSSI commander and wait until scanning of the network is completed. Your KSSI-node should be visible in the list.
  3. Click the KSSI-node you wish to configure. The details should appear below the list.
  4. Enter a name (like Livingroom, Kitchen, etc.) in the Playername field.
  5. If you want to connect using Wifi, click the Scan-button and wait for the wifiscan to complete.
  6. Select the correct Wifi-network and enter the Wifi-password in the Wifi-Password-field.
  7. Click on Save Settings and wait for the KSSI-node to reboot (takes up to 35 seconds)
  8. You should be able to disconnect the LAN-cable now and the KSSI-node will connect to Wifi at reboot. If that does not work, you have probably entered the wrong password.
  9. Enjoy streaming music!
