I am new to Raspberry PI, familiar with LMS
I am planning to setup raspberry pi based player for LMS, with Picoreplayer + LMS.

Suggest me which RPI should I purchase, for following requirement ?
  • Can boot from USB Pen Drive. (Heard stories of SD card failures, hence pen drive)
  • USB DAC connect to RPI.
  • USB External 2.5 inch HDD connect to RPI. ( No NAS at premise ).
  • RPI should connect to WiFi (5 Ghz preferred).
Rpi4 would be ideal but availability is an issue

Thank you. Will await your screenshot. Not being able to browse using folder structure is a deal breaker for me.
My collection is 1.8 Terrabyte. mpd does that in less than 5 minutes. But it could be because mpd doesn't fetch things like album art, etc. It just creates a db with tags limited to artist, album, title, file creation time, track, genre, date, composer, performer, disc.
I was trying out LMS with max2play the other day. At least 3 Android clients can browse and play through folders - Squeeze Controller , Squeezer (both free) and Orange Squeeze (paid)
 
Purchase the Audiolab 6000A Integrated Amplifier at a special offer price.
