Does my car need a small media server for tunes while I'm way off-grid? My audio tape styled SSD enclosure suggests that the answer is "yes".

I'd really hoped to use the old Pi model 1 that I've had for years for this, but it's just a bit too slow to keep up well. I'd also hoped to use the old 120GB SSD from my last PC, but that's too flaky (I am now recalling that I replaced it for a reason).

So now I've got a Pi 3 A+ and a 240GB SSD and I'm barely using any of the available resources, so maybe I need to incorporate video as well.



@mike The Pi4 is a peppy little machine. I'm using one as a straight desktop, another as a media PC.

And a related system, the ROCKPro64, as our PBX, security system, web server, media server, security cam logging, and whatever odd jobs need a Linux place to live.
