    TrueNAS is BSD based. Not easiest either.

    I'd say... piCorePlayer on a Pi :-)

    piCorePlayer is definitely the easiest by some way these days

    That must be true. With a little help from folk on this forum I got piCorePlayer running in half an hour and then got on with the LMS adjustment, which was easy because I have used it for years.

    I abandoned running it on an ageing PC because of Windows hiccups.

    In UK: rPi4 running LMS, Chromecast Audio Dongle and Chromecast Video Dongle attached to TV - Beresford DAC - Quad 77 Integrated Amp - AVI Neutron 4 Speakers - Sennheiser HD25 Headphones. Boom in Bedroom.

    In Nicosia: LMS running on a small form factor Windows PC, Beresford DAC into Quad 405-2 and MB Quart 980s

    I cannot confirm this because I don't have one, but would polyvection CORE32 be the easiest way to run LMS?

    Possibly the easiest, but if someone is prepared to consider configuring a NAS then ease and cost might be in the balance. PiCorePlayer on a Raspberry Pi might hit the sweetspot and therefore qualify as the "best" asked for; being not too expensive, easy to manage and very reliable.

    Possibly. The downside is you become reliant on them for updates.

    While the Polyvection players look decent value, I can't see how the price of the CORE32 server can be justified. Setting up piCorePlayer as a LMS server on a RPi really is child's play, and can be done for less than half the cost of a CORE32.
    Until recently: Transporter -> ATC SCM100A, now sold :-(
    House move forced change to: piCorePlayer(RPi2/HiFiBerry DIGI2 Pro) -> Meridian 218 -> Meridian M6

    "Best" is very subjective of course - but I've run LMS and Squeezebox arrays on Windows (currently Win11) with very, very few problems, for many, many years.

    Maybe I'm that "lucky customer" but I've had very, very few general Windows hiccups at all, in any regard, over 20+ years.

    BTW, we are a Win / Mac / Linux household, so I have cross-platform experience! And I stand by Windows as, overall, as good as any. Horses for courses, of course.
    LMS 8.2.1 - 1639114554
    Win11
    Control: Web GUI; MaterialSkin 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-r16862)
    2 x SB Radios [wireless] (8.0.1-r16867)
    2 x SqueezeAmps

    b) Freebox
    External SSD, WiFi Laptop
    1 x Touch LAN (Firmware:8.0.1-r16862)
    2 x SB Radios, Wireless (8.0.1-r16867)
