Simple Solution to Stream Apple Music to Raspberry Pi

Q: Anyone have any luck with Apple Music + PI? Looking to set up a home music system with speakers connected to my PI where you can log in from your phone and stream apple music to it. Has anyone been successful with that? Ive seen it for spotify but not Apple music.

The Raspberry Pi is a small and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has an official general-use operating system, called Raspbian, that's optimized to work on the Pi. But the Raspberry Pi primarily runs Linux, so technically it can do anything any Linux computer can do, such as run email and Web servers, act as network storage, or operate as a VPN.

The Raspberry Pi is an ideal candidate to serve you as digital hi-fi music player. Just install a simple music player on the Raspberry Pi and you can use it to play music. What's more, you can create a cheap standalone streaming music player for Spotify, Google Music, SoundCloud, Webradio, Podcasts and other music from the cloud with Pi MusicBox.
