Yes, the files are just stored in a folder (or folders) and Volumio is just pointed to it in exactly the same way as you would with a NAS or USB Drive. As it's an SSD, there's no 'spin up' or switch on even (as the power is via the USB connection).

I basically just power on my amp, then the RPi and listen at leisure to either LAN or Internet streamed content.
