    What portable players are compatible with LMS?

    I run Logitech Media Server on a Raspberry Pi 4 with attached USB music library and Spotify. I'm finding this to be fantastic, and wanting to use it more. I have a Squeezebox classic which inputs into a hifi and a Raspberry Pi with audio Hat into another hifi. I want another player, but something more portable, for round the house. Needing to be plugged in is fine. I want something with decent speakers/bass.
    e.g. Are there any wifi speakers that work with LMS?

    do you have an iPhone? I use iPeng control app on my iPhone/iPad and it also has built in playback (for additional small price). So my iPhone and iPad are both "squeezebox" players as well. I use a small JBL Bluetooth portable speaker (either a Charge3 or Charge4). Sounds fantastic. Speaker can play for 15 to 20 hours with no recharging. So sitting on porch or patio, I can both stream from LMS to the speaker via bluetooth, and also fully control LMS from the iPeng on my phone.

    Libratone Zipp speakers work great with LMS via the airplay bridge, and these are portable speakers. You could also use SB Player on android to playback on the phone, or to a bluetooth speaker.

    And of course there's the original portable squeezebox device, the Squeezebox RADIO. I use one for portable, battery powered use. These are still available from various sources, relatively cheap.
