    The Mondo will only connect to Reciva. Reciva has been pretty solid for the last couple of years - they do seem to have sorted their server redundancy.

    Avox make a version of the Mondo available in Europe.
    LMS server: Pi Zero

    Amp: Denon PMA-50

    Players/Speakers: Touch, Logitech Radios, Sonos Play 1s & Beam, Libratone Zipp, GGMM E2 & E3, Yamaha WXAD-010, Loewe Airspeaker, Google Chromecast Audio, Home Mini & Nest Hub, Amazon Echo 2,3 and Show5, Pioneer WX-SMA1, Roberts S1, O2 Joggler, Cisco Joggler, Avantree Priva BT transmitter

    OK you have used both systems so you would know the pros and cons of each of them .

    Recivas bussines seems to be to provide service for several brands of radios ,so redundancy is paramount i suppose .

    But i value the local LMS function so much a dlna player is not my thing and no obvious "connect to Hi-Fi box" and the flexibility of the squeezebox eco system ? but my use case is not the most common .

    I agree. The Reciva radios we have/had were good (nice sound) and work well as just radios. The interface is not easy to navigate. I much prefer the SBs - more flexible and much easier to operate.

    Reciva dropped out of the radio market - it only ever produced modules - I think there are really only a few brands left. They never supported the different radios but always referred users back to manufacturers (many cheaper brands just disappeared or provided no real support).

    The same for me: I own 2 x Reciva-powered internet radios (DNT, German brand) for more than 3 years.
    I have NEVER encountered a server outage, so for me Recive delivers a very reliable service!

    I have recently purchased the Logitech Squeezeboxes, and I am impressed by it's flexibility and it's features which are unbeatable (to my opinion).
    Therefore, I hope that the existing 'my squeezebox.com' servers will be supported in the future to be able to use my Squeezebox receivers.
    I can imagine that nothing will last forever, so it would be great when another provider could take over the service when Logitech will finally shut down their servers.
    To be realistic: nothing is for free, so I am willing to pay a small yearly fee to keep the support up.
    Could this be a solution??
