Thinking about getting a SB Radio to the bedroom.
Does the UE version work with LMS for streaming FLAC files stored on a NAS?
Are there any other new players with built-in speaker(s) (also non-Logitech) available up to ~100 euros?

LMS and UE are 'separate' systems. If you have LMS, then you can use several standalone speakers (eg. the GGMM range, Google Home mini, etc.) with the range of bridge plugins. You can reconfigure the UE radio into a standard Logitech Radio and use this with LMS.

The UE has its own cut down version of LMS available too for local file playback, but yes it's closed source and you won't get extras on it. What else is there? Not much. A few manufacturers are coming out with multiroom hardware but it's miles from the functionality of LMS. Probably way better on usability for the newbies, but then, there's always Sonos.

It's not closed source. It's just a branch off of LMS:

Yes, version 10...
