    Incredible NEW 11.6 inch touchscreen Squeezebox player with Bluetooth

    Well, I'm sure someone has thought of this but anyway...

    A really nice large touchscreen Squeezebox player can be made from

    Any touchscreen Chrome notebook, especially one that converts to a tablet (for example, the Flex 3)
    Squeeze-CTRL as an interface for the touchscreen
    Android Squeezebox Player
    Bluetooth speakers


    Price range 50 USD and up depending on if you want it refurbed or not.

    The Squeeze-CTRL interface really makes it finger friendly.

    While the speakers don't usually sound too great, the Bluetooth sure does.

    What do you think? For ease of setup and use, this is a picoreplayer killer.

        Isn't it flattering to be the only real target for these types of comments? That says something about the quality of your work!

          I think the greatest thing about the "Logitech Squeezebox Environment" is we are spoilt with options.

          Luckily, there is always something or someone, to fill a gap or offer an alternative.

            Yes ,been doing this for years on my Nvidia Shield TV to get cover art on the TV screen and audio via the Denon surround sound amp. Not touch screen but the remote works well enough to control things. Alternatively the Shield TV on my phone gives full control. Not a "piCore killer" but another LMS option.

              I am not trying to squash @jimzak's innovation, but.

              I posted about something similar using refurbished Amazon Fire tablets (as low as $20USD for an 8") https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...ire-HD-Tablets

              The devil in the details seems to me the constant application of line power to the tablet/chrome book and it's long term affect on the battery. @RobbH has a great idea to try to setup the android app "tasker" to turn on and off a smart plug. I had planned on checking into this this winter, but winter has only started

              But, I also think it has great possibilities. It's a very "thin" (hang on the wall?) solution. I bought and converted a number of these tablet just to have a material/squeeze cntrl as a control/now playing screen hanging laying around, and found I also use them for ear bud listening as well, especially when the house is sleeping...

                As a bonus, Chromebooks that are recent enough to have good Linux support may be able to run LMS.

                I use an old X86-based Chromebook, now running GalliumOS, as my travel music player. It runs LMS and squeezelite with the music library on a usb SSD.

                I also have LMS running on an Arm-based Chromebook, but due to space constraints and ChromeOS's failure to support some disk formats, its capabilities are limited. But it still makes a great player.
                Usually running latest beta LMS nightly on Raspberry Pi OS with virtual players (Squeezelite and Airplay bridge). Occasionally using SB Radio, Boom or Classic.
