    One of the posts says that LMS (on the pCP machine) works when device is in AP mode.
    So ... install LMS on the same pCP system (using the pCP menu to do it) and then point LMS to the locally stored music files.
    Ok, thanks.

    What is the term AP?

    Pi/piCorePlayer running in AP mode worked flawlessly for me I used it in the car for some months, but it became a bit of a faff, I now use a phone with a large micro SDcard in car.

    I also used it a couple of times in a holiday home with no router/network. Again it worked absolutely without problem. Picture below shows setup for indoors, it doesn't actually need a battery when there's mains available. I used to take my Boom as it's compact and fairly decent sound quality, although the Pi has HiFiBerry DAC HAT, so can be fed into a decent HiFi system.

    Go for it!
