Looks like the USB has finally been changed quite a bit.

Indeed - the ethernet / USB shared pipe bottleneck has been eliminated, resulting massively improved benchmarks for both:

We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.

I'm very clueless still about streaming with a device like this.  What software do you use?  And is it as easy and consistent as say a Sonos or Bluesound Node?

You can make it a Roon end point, DLNA endpoint and do all kinds of cool stuff with it such as install audio Volumio.

How about consistency Chris?  I'm looking to put a streamer in the family room, nothing fancy.  More important is ease of use and consistency for family members.

If you use Roon the Pi is as consistent and easy as Roon. It's just an endpoint with USB output, or with something from a company like Allo or HiFi Berry you can have analog or digital audio output.

 

They are very stable. At $35 it's hard to beat.

I read that it’s a pop in replacement solution for many previous Pi’s so I could just switch one with my present Pi3 board in the same case, etc., if I want. Cool.


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS >SOtM Lan Isolator>Bricasti M5 Network Player >Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

The ports are different and the software must be updated to support the new features.

Raspbian at least has been updated. Software such as NAA should work.

 

Looks very promising. I’ll test as a NAA/wireless access point once stuff like flirc aluminum case become available
