    Plus a remote control.

    Looks like quite a good package to me - at least for those that do not want a self-build/self-assemble.

    Just to be clear, I'm not promoting this, I just posted for people that might be looking for something like this. $153 seems like a good price for someone to come to Squeezebox land.

    Hi Fahzz

    Thank you for posting about the new DAC from Allo. It's good to know about these new arrivals, which can be useful for our society here (LMS, piCorePlayer and Squeeze....).

    Cheers,
    Claus

    It's not clear if the Boss2 is a HAT, or just Pi-compatible. It does look interesting.

    You can install PiCorePlayer on it and use it as an LMS player.
