    I'm still using a 3B+ every day in the office. It's plenty powerful for
    my 20k tracks and some online music integration.

    Totally agree on this. Also running Pi3-B+
    Also agree on the sd card part. I'm always using video or industrial graded cards and since then I have never had a corrupted sd card.
    If possible use a Ups as power source so short power outages can be bridged.

    Though I've got a couple of Phillipe's wi-fi only SqueezeAmps (for the fun of supporting such a great project), this is one thing that makes me a tad reluctant to try the PolyVection "replacement" LMS / Player route - again (subject to correction!) wifi only, at least for the players. While recently I've had great wi-fi performance with my various systems, I still find that for "serious" listening of big FLAC tracks (especially long-form music), cabled LAN is the way to be set up.
    LMS 8.2.1 - 1628023316
    Win10
    Control: Web GUI; sometimes OrangeSqueeze on Android phones / pads

    Machines / devices are in France, in two locations.
    a) Livebox 4
    Internal HDD (FLAC music; mp3 voice), LAN Desktop
    3 x Touch - 1 wireless, 2 LAN. (8.0.1-r16855)
    2 x SB Radios [wireless] (8.0.1-r16855)
    2 x SqueezeAmps

    b) Freebox
    External SSD, WiFi Laptop
    1 x Touch LAN (Firmware:7.8.0-r16754)
    2 x SB Radios, Wireless (7.7.3-r16676)
