9. Wirelessly control your hi-fi
The Pi can also offer a cost effective way to pipe your music collection to your stereo.
Install RuneAudio on the Pi and you can stream music from local or remote drives to your hi-fi, easily search and organise your music library, as well as listening to tracks using your smartphone, tablet or via the browser.
Setting it up is relatively straightforward - just follow this walkthrough, though it's worth bearing in mind that a few compatibility issues are being worked out with the Pi 3 and some audio equipment.
