    Got it - Thanks!

    Laptop is doable here...Android is a no-go for now, but we might have one in the house soon. (Edit: looks like Volumio will run on my Blackberry Passport).

    I am immensely impressed with the Allo DAC and Mike suggests his Piano DAC is better so i may try that before i send the rest back lol. Might have to make another deal

    In terms of upgrades, i have a PSU on the way with 2x5v outputs so i can use a powered USB hub with the music files on so i should be fine for some time. Maybe when i a up to speed with all the setup etc, i will have a look at whats comes next.
    Which PSU did you go for?
    Allo Boss Player / NJC Audio Reference Headphone Amp / Sennheiser HD600

    This one.

    It won't quite provide the 3A as advertised apparently, but will be 2.5 - 2.7 according to calculations. I did ask Alan for his opinion and that was it.

    Volumio is controlled in any browser by typing in its local IP address!

    For a music server I have an RPi with PiCorePlayer and it in turn runs Logitech Media Server.
    Install PiCoreplayer on to a memory card. It is small enough to be loaded in to the RPi memory every time you boot so there is virtually no danger of a corrupted memory card, which is a major problem I had with Volumio. Then install LMS and Robert is your mother's brother ....
    All controlled from iphone or ipad using iPeng, simple and a delight to use.

    I like Ipeng, cheap and quite good interface. Used it with an InnuOs server, sweet.

    Thanks guys! Some great suggestions here for Volumio, iPeng, Picoreplayer, etc. Lots of things to research here. Definitely more involved than just plugging a DAC into a laptop. But rewards seem to be worth the effort.

    Has anyone mentioned Squeezelite running Logitech Media Server? I use that as it's the same software as my Zen so I already know it and can use the same app on my phone.

    Hi Svend,

    Also look at Kodi: https://kodi.tv/ used in conjunction with OSMC (instead of Volumio and such like): https://osmc.tv/

    If you've got a smart TV and good Wi-Fi, for me it's the way to go, as the interface is superb (easy to use and very intuitive), looks great, and you can control *everything* from your TV remote control! No phones, laptops or any other such device needed.

    In conjunction with an RPi, streaming music is a joy, encouraging rather long listening sessions!

    Marco.
