    Thank you both, that's useful to know. Airplay is definitely a good option for me then.

    I check in on ebay here is the US frequently and there is always an abundance of radios. Touches and Booms are more rare (and seemingly more desirable = higher price). The radios generally for for about $50 - $70 USD. I have bought a few, use 2 and have 2 in storage.

    That is a very good price!
    The big brother version has excellent sound for its size. I'd expect that to be pretty good too.
    I use mine in Airplay mode with Philippe's bridge and I'd recommend that mode as the best option if your WiFi reaches far enough into the garden.
    One tip. Disconnect your phone from Bluetooth (or temporarily switch off on Phone) as it seems to take preference to AirPlay - I had a few occasions where controlling on my phone via Material something else has suddenly started playing!

    Thanks for the tips! I got it today. It is nicely made and the sound quality is not bad, absolutely fine for the garden and more than loud enough (to annoy the neighbours ).

    The AirPlay bridge is working nicely, thank you phillippe_44.

    I did a little walkabout and my wi-fi range covers everywhere that I might reasonably want it. It was interesting to hear how the speaker sounds very different in different spaces (and in different positions in those spaces). It is not so easy to experiment with speaker placement with my main wired floorstanders!!

    My only concern with the Zipp is (unless I am missing something) that is is dependent on an app for initial network set-up, and so is thus dependent on the continuing support of the app by its dev. I am sensitive to this as I have an original Sphero and Sphero R2D2 in the house, both in fine mechanical condition... but Sphero no longer support them. Both would be dead if it were not for the APKMirror, where the apps can still be found... but at some point even these will cease to work with future versions of Android. I guess the Squeezebox Radio has a real advantage here. I presume that SqueezeAmp has browser or SSH/Telnet config?

    I just found the Zipp Mini for a bit less again here on Ebay. They're doing Best Offer too.
