    BTW - I just got a headless Pi Zero W working with an Allo Mini Boss dac (in I2C master mode) - running pCP 3.21 - sounds very nice streaming from LMS running on an RPi 3 over built-in wifi. I have not yet added LMS to the Zero or experimented with multiple SSIDs - one thing at a time!
    Sounds good - let me know, if you have any new thoughts on the multiple SSID issue.

    Other than that - here are some pictures from my piPAL setup:

    This is available to try on the pi, I don't know if it works on pCP though

    Thanks for this hint!
    Looking at my default config.txt, it has already the following line
    audio_pwm_mode=2
    in there.
    So I guess, this optimization is already implemented in pCP?

    I've been using the GGMM-E5 portable player in conjunction with Phillipe's UPNP plugin. It works as a reasonable looking/sounding, battery powered player (like a Bose speaker) any where in range of your home wifi. I started thinking of trying to do what you are doing but this device is much more elegant.

    dual wifi setup on piCorePlayer with a Zero

    Does someone have further ideas reg dual wifi setup on piCorePlayer?
    More specific for a band-aid idea: Is there a way to access the FAT boot partition (PCP) of picoreplayer remotely while picoreplayer is running?
    (Then I could have 2 newconfig.bak files and rename the appropriate one for the WLAN I want to access after next reboot... not really convenient, I know...)

    General Update: My "piPAL" (see http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...l=1#post893404) runs smoothly and I am happy with it.
    Although - as many had recommended - I added an I2S DAC (generic PCM5102A) for sound improvement. I still had to fight noise issues where the Pi transmits 'computing noise' to the PALs Amplifier.
    This seems to be due to the Pi feeding off the same power source - the PALs battery and due ot the fact that they are so close together.
    Noise was *almost* fixed by adding a ferrite core for the power-wires to the Pi and putting max distance between Pi cables and PAL cables.

    Now, I am really happy with the setup - if I only find a way to toggle between 2 WiFi settings......
