Particularly interested to hear from pCp guys as to what they think

Its pricey but there is a lower cost option that gives the pre-built touchscreen, case and accessories but no Pi or DAC

Ugly and expensive ... better option is an O2 Joggler for 50 gbp !

I have got 3 of those. What DAC do you use with them?

O2 joggler are awful in my experience. Slow and unreliable. And fgs don't use its own audio output as it's really really bad.

No dac - just audio out to amp. Good enough for my ears!

Had little problem running SqpOs and LMS on a Joggler for years.

I don't like the analogue out on the Joggler it doesn't suit my ears.
I currently use my Jogglers (with SqueezePlayOS installed) as control points for RaspPi based players and this works well however I am interested in the AudioPhonics thingy because of its IMHO nice case implementation.

I thought its audio was "good enough" for non-critical listening until I tried a genuine Logitech Squeezebox in the same system and I'd never go back.

ESS Dac support is sketchy, as the ESS stuff is typically closed source drivers. But I think most get them to work with other or generic drivers. I personally would not support ESS due to their close source policies. That being said, other than being expensive, there is probably nothing wrong with the box, I'm sure it works fine. The power button integration is just simple GPIO, which we do have a extension for that.
