    Asus Tinker Board

    So, any thoughts in the Tinker Board? Does anyone already own one? The specs look good (faster, more RAM, 4K video, 24/192 audio) and it runs Debian. And it obviously fits into standard RPi 2/3 cases. The 4K makes it an ideal board for KODI, but what about our Squeezebox enviroment (LMS, Squeezelite, Max2Play)?

    EDIT: It also has 1 Gigabit ethernet and RPi displays can be connected.

    Asus Tinker Board

    4k only is marketing: it can upscale 1080 content to 4K. But it doesn't handle 4K content.

    Other than that I guess it's a solid platform to run LMS. And it has gbit.
