I prefer not to have another system run LMS.
This is only a minor annoyance. As long as I can enjoy the music, I can manage this stuff... The cost considering its enjoyment factor is pretty close to insignificant. I would imaging a truly polished system with exactly the same sound to cost 10X as much...
What I listen with.... Elsinore's, Yaquin MC-13S / EL34 - MS-300B, My pile of schitt Mani, Loki, Modi Multibit. Audio-Technica AT-LPW40WN/AT-VM95SH/H, R PiCore/LMS + Digi

Interesting discussion. Just wondering... I am a huge fan of the Squeezebox infrastructure as well. Why ?
- It is open source, so nice for DIY players and future proof.
- It supports 'bit perfect' audio (I do not want any transcoding, even can use DTS sources)
- Synchronization between players
- Low hardware requirements, Squeezelite can run on a low cost ESP32 board
- Music (and server application) can be on a NAS or fileserver
- It is user friendly (especially for searching , browsing) because database oriented.
Especially for the user friendliness, I am interested how other people think about this. Someone in this thread mentioned "there are other alternatives"
Are there really other (comparible) alternatives ? I like to hear them.
The user interface I use on my phone is very nice
- it shows album art
- Can create playlists on the fly
- Can search on Album, Title, Artist, Year, Genre
- Searching and browsing is fast
In the past I have tried several DLNA alternatives and I have never found anything useful (actually always wondered how people can use DLNA, considered it feels like back to the stone ages compared to Squeezebox)
I deliberaterly did not mention Tidal, Qubuz and other streaming services as a Squeezebox benefit, sooner or later support for MySqueezebox will be dropped and they for sure will not be available anymore.
But anyway, if there are some nice alternatives out there, I would like to hear them.
