I have a number of players, howver the Squeezebox Radio I have been using in my BBQ Shack seems to have died a death. Not powering on either under battery or mains, I have swapped batteries with another radio and the charging leads and still no joy :-( I will put a post in the Radio forum seeing what folks think about trying to repair.....

So I am looking at the potential alternatives. My server is running on a Synology DS209+ NAS (Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.0 - 023.1090 @ Wed Jul 20 12:03:07 UTC 2016.....yes I know it needs an upgrade but its getting round to it plus I think it was a Synology package).

I have an old iPhone 5 lie-ing around, I was thinking to use that a conduit to a external IPX7 (W-King possibly) Bluetooth speaker, Wifi to the shack is good. Music on the NAS is a collection of MP3 and FLAC format - from what I've read the iOS10 (which the iphone 5 runs) doesn't support FLAC natively so needs a player.....so was thinking of an App to "play" the tracks on the phone and then Bluetooth to the speaker......

So questions - which software will do that for me - a quick search of the old Wiki seems to show only iPeng in existence now. On my Android phone I have Squeezer and SqueezePlayer. I don't really want to use my own phone as it would mean it would always need to stay in the shack whilst playing - plus it also has the Govee light strip app which connects via Bluetooth so if I want to change my light settings the music would stop!

Of course any other suggestions to suitable players - possibly Wifi enabled so could connect direct to the NAS most welcome (with any suggestions for iOS apps to control the music!) will be most welcome.

Thanks in advance!
