    The aforementioned Grace Digital Mondo+ has been working great for me and it was well under $200. You don't have to spend "a lot of money" to get a competent Squeezebox replacement. My Squeezebox got so unstable and frustrating that it's waiting for a trip to the desert and I have a round of 12ga 00 buckshot with its name on it.

    Sure there is, it's called Raspberry Pi! I just built an SB Touch Clone for $182 that includes an upgraded 7 inch Touch Display plus 30 watts per channel out! If one doesn't need a display, just a 30 Watt per channel streaming device, one only needs to spend $115. If one just needs a streaming device with analog/digital outs, then one is under $85.

    LMS has never been as stable and strong as it is now! I haven't had a single issue with any of my servers or any of my devices or services in almost 10 years (with the exception of issues caused by stupid changes made by a streaming service). Over 85 percent of the issues and problems users have are caused by poor setup, poor infrastructure choices (equipment choices, Windows OS, no Ethernet in high WiFi interference environment), not enough Server, or poorly designed network setup. Now Windows Lovers don't get upset, yes Windows work, I am just of the opinion there are better OS choices available for running LMS, Vortexbox for example.

    Many things have changed int he last 15 years and yet Squeezebox and LMS has been able to keep up and in my opinion there is no reason to start over on very expensive closed systems. YMMV
