    Thanks for your help. I decided to go with a HiFiBerry Amp2

    A completely self contained unit can be built on a rpi3b, using picoreplayer and LMS using something like this

    http://iqaudio.co.uk/hats/8-pi-dac-0712411999643.html

    This is a good reliable Dac-hat for a raspberry pi.

    It also features a separeate headphone output which is of better quality than the basic one on the rpi3.

    The audio outputs can be connected to an integrated amplifier or to Active Speakers (in the case of the latter, care should be exercised with the volume control)

    I have used a similar setup with Acive Mackie Speakers (which feature an auto-sensing switch on facility) Speakers and rpi all plugged into the same power bar, switched on and off at the wall, configured to play a favourite radio station at switch on, works very well).

    Edit: IQaudio also do cases
    This is the link:

    This is a DAC and an AMP.
    I already have passive speakers and the power will probably be a power supply from a dead laptop.

    I have learned a lot and your help pointed me in the right direction.

    Once again ... Thanks.

    edit:
    I'm looking into using Max2Play instead of Picoreplayer ... it is closely tied into the HiFiBerry system.
