In the meantime I have my new QNAP HS-453DX NAS with QLMS installed and up and running alongside my older Vortexbox LMS implementation - ready and waiting for the Allo gear's arrival.

    Nice. Yeah I definitely would have gone with that case if I'd done the RPi 4 route rather than the Allo USBridge Signature.

    Should run cooler than my Pi3B. Main reason to go to the Pi4 is the extra RAM. I won't need swap space to cope with MusicIP anymore.

    That's what I thought given your location. So the graph is showing about 40 degrees C, which is 104 degrees F. This seems VERY hot. My 3B+ in a case runs at about 60 degrees F.
