    No display required. There's a plugin for Qobuz, and mobile control is
    possible using one of several mobile apps, or eg. the Material skin
    (plugin).

    Hi,
    I started with PiCorePlayer recently with no previous experience of music streaming systems. I use it with Qobuz and it's great.
    With PcP solution you just need to understand the different elements:
    • music server is LMS (Logitech Media Server) - which also provides the graphical information displayed when you control the system
    • music player: PcP installs squeezebox - which has no graphical user interface. You can have many players connected to the same server.
    • ways to control what is playing where. That can be an app on a Pi with a touchscreen (PcP would install jivelite), that can be a controller app on your mobile, or accessing the web page coming from LMS. That web page can be accessed from any device on the same network.

    The great thing with PicorePlayer is that it can install and manage any of these elements on a raspberry Pi. You choose what you want to install or not.
    The extra functionalities correspond to LMS plug-ins you can select:
    • material skin for the web page (works great when you access from mobile devices, but also from desktop computers)
    • music services e.g. Tidal, Spotify, Qobuz...
    • internet radio
    • alarm clock etc. etc.

    Try it. It's very neat...
