Thanks for the tip - either I'm too late (again), or the store hasn't updated stock yet. Have emailed them!

Edit: just got a reply, this last batch sold out in a few hours yesterday. They will do another batch in a month.

Well the long lead-time is probably an inconvenience for you, but you could spend some of this time acquiring and setting up your rPi.
- buy a Raspberry Pi 3 B+
- buy a 5V power supply - decide if you want stardard 2.5A wall-wart, or the well regarded iFi iPower.
- buy an enclosure - many people like the transparent acrylic versions, but I think the official Pi foundation case in white/red is cute.
- download Volumio and flash it to MicroSD card

- decide how you are going to turn the rPi off - it can only be safely powered down from a software command;
a) Volumio has a power-down function in its menu which correctly sends this command ... but you might not always use Volumio in the future?
b) or you can connect an external push button switch to a GPIO header, then install a script on the rPi which initiates power-down when the switch is pressed.
c) or you can buy a hardware shutdown/power controller, such as ATXRaspi or Witty Pi.

And you said you want to stream from Spotify, but if you also decide to play local music files you should use a NAS device on your home network. If you don't already own a NAS, in the short term you can just use your old laptop as a shared network drive.
