Default DIY Spotify / Chromecast player

I am currently looking for a new streaming solution but I canít seem to find one that is able to satisfy what seems to be simple requirements:
1. Gapless playback from Spotify connect and Tidal.
2. Supports Chromecast or other multi room playback, does not need to be gapless.
3. Lets me use my Spotify playlists.
4. Digital output I2S, SPDif or Toslink for external DAC.
5. Doesnít require a software engineering degree to be set up.

Basically I want to build my own Naim Uniti Atom. I have looked at solutions like Up2stream and various R pi solutions, but none of them seem to support my own Spotify playlists or gapless playback.

Have I missed anything, or is there another way to integrate these streaming services to a DIY setup, that is not just a USB or Bluetooth player?

not sure about Tidal but my LMS setup does exactly what you describe. I use Squeezebox Touch in 3 locations. In my office right now, a Touch pushing bits to my Teac DAC, followed by my Elekit tube amp, etc. In living room the Touch goes directly to my Millet amp. LMS is flexible and has lots of plugins. I especially like the RadioParadise setup on it, but play Spotify lists from time to time (if only they would come with FLAC...)
