    Squeezebox Radio

    Easy to find second user variants on a certain online auction site.

    A possible alternative could be a self contained Android system with built in speaker ( with an Android Squeezebox player app)

    There was a product called a Zettaly Avy but also sold under the brand Aluratek
    https://aluratek.com/stream-pro-wifi...screen-display

    a similar product is called a SoundPad MA-327

    I guess I originally was looking for an all-in-one box like the SQ Radio, but I realize a Bluetooth speaker and phone with iPeng probably is the best solution.
    Sure? I couldn't think of a neater solution than my kitchen radio: A Pi with the 7 inch touch pad and Bluetooth or audio wired box.

    Indeed. That was my thought when I first saw the thread, and I saw units on eBay when I checked. Remember that the UE version is also viable, and can be converted to old school Radio if you want.

    For bedroom use, I would stay away from Radio or any other device with a display that cannot be completely shut off. It does not take a lot of light to mess up your melatonin.

    Mine automatically dims almost to darkness when other light sources are off.

    I just checked in Settings, and with Minimal Brightness (Auto) set to its lowest point, the display is just about invisible when the room is dark.
