Installation

Install by running:

sudo pip install Mopidy-NAD

Or, if available, install the Debian/Ubuntu package from apt.mopidy.com.

Configuration

The Mopidy-NAD extension is enabled by default. To disable it, add the following to mopidy.conf:

[nad]
enabled = false

The NAD amplifier must be connected to the machine running Mopidy using a serial cable.

To use the NAD amplifier ot control volume, set the audio/mixer config value in mopidy.conf to nad. You probably also needs to add some properties to the nad config section.

Supported properties includes:

  • port: The serial device to use, defaults to /dev/ttyUSB0. This must be set correctly for the mixer to work.
  • source: The source that should be selected on the amplifier, like aux, disc, tape, tuner, etc. Leave unset if you don't want the mixer to change it for you.
  • speakers-a: Set to on or off (or true or false) if you want the mixer to make sure that speaker set A is turned on or off. Leave unset if you don't want the mixer to change it for you.
  • speakers-b: See speakers-a.

Configuration example with minimum configuration, if the amplifier is available at /dev/ttyUSB0:

[audio]
mixer = nad

Configuration example with minimum configuration, if the amplifier is available elsewhere:

[audio]
mixer = nad

[nad]
port = /dev/ttyUSB3

Configuration example with full configuration:

[audio]
mixer = nad

[nad]
port = /dev/ttyUSB0
source = aux
speakers-a = true
speakers-b = false
