    Greg, I am still playing with pCP a bit.

    Frankly the biggest problem is finding a case for a touchscreen that will work with (and enclose and protect) a 3B+ and an I2S DAC.** :-) The Smartipi case with optional extended backs is about the best I've found so far, but it looks not quite polished/tidy enough for some rooms. :-(

    For the httpd I'm pretty comfortable with my loopback binding and tunneling through ssh. At least with that sshd is the only listening daemon. BTW I'm glad you chose OpenSSH instead of something like dropbear.

    I also played with Ubuntu Mate today and ooh, boy, Jivelite on pCP is soo much snapper than my first attempt at Squeezeplay on Mate on Pi that it's hard to imagine Mate being viable. pCP with a 3B+ seems likely to be snappier than my Touch but I expect Mate would be a step backward.

    ** I'd especially like one in which I could fit an IR receiver and a rotary encoder knob for Radio-style quick volume control.

    Hi Peter

    I've had success with the DesignSpark case and a Dremel tool. Please see: http://www.cfuttrup.com/touch_upgrade.html

    ... but yes, finding a good case for a different board and/or with different features requires some work, or you use a setup without a rear cover, or you design your own (maybe 3D printed). Another option is to connect the pieces with cables and e.g. use one of the Audiophonics cases.

    Claus, hanks for the info & suggestions. I spent a bunch of time on Thingverse the other day, and this project looked pretty good, a revised cap for a widely available case that looks sufficient for an audio HAT: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2268017

    Yup, that's the DesignSpark case that I'm using, and it looks like a nice 3D-printed extension.
