I would like to make my own snips kit for myself, because ordering the official kit from the seeed shop would add horrendous shipping, tax and customs fees.
Does anybody use a custom setup like this?
- Raspi 3 B+
- ReSpeaker 2-Mics pHAT
- some standard speaker connected via headphone out
- no grove hats that are included in the original kit
I tried to install sips on ubuntu 18.04 just to get a feeling how it would be to have that thing at home, but failed. It seems there are many reasons why the use of a raspberry is recommended…
However would you still recommend using the above components for a diy snips kit, or is this going to fail?
From reading the posts in this forum I got the impression, that it is hard to get things to work if custom components are used.
Would you say this applies also to a kit that has mostly the same components as the original kit?
Do I still choose “snips kit” during the setup even if I dont have the original kit but only the same components (except the grove sensors)?
Is there a downside to using a selfmade kit other than not supporing the creators of snips?
