  • Can I do this?

    I'm building a new VORTEX box. The old atom,well, just seemed to get old...

    I have a LENOVO ThinkCentre M93p which I'm going to fit out with a 1 tb spinning drive and connect via ethernet cable.
    All good (I haven't done this yet...)
    The micro desktop comes with DVD drive so all good for ripping.

    I'm thinking will get a USB DAC (dragonfly?) to connect to stereo.
    So should show as a squeezelite player?

    It would be very nice if I could also use this set up to stream via bluetooth from a MacBook pro (youtube etc) to the new Vortexbox.
    The Lenovo doesn't have a wireless card (although I could fit one). But I do have a quality bluetooth dongle.

    It would be great if this could work?

    It would be really great if the bluetooth option appeared in the Vortexbox menu?
    Even greater if I could add as an option to a Logitech Duet controller...

    Or is this asking the impossible?
    I'm pretty novice a Linux etc. But willing to give it a go...

    Thanks for any advice.
