It kinda works but found i need to run it through an external amp to get any sort of reasonable volume out of it. So I bought a LEPY LP-2020A that has 3.5mm in, and i've bought a 4pin 3.5mm cable for the rpi side (a normal 3pin caused audio clicking but was fine when plugged into my phone for testing).

low volume was another issue i was getting, but after a while looking into it, no-one seemed to have a fix. your script seems to be something i've not seen till now and a lot more complete. worth a go as it would simplify things and improve the WAF
