I wake up every morning to news on my Squeezebox Radio alarm, and listen to music while reading in bed before I go to sleep. The Squeezebox won't last forever, so I'm looking for a replacement and I need some suggestions. My criteria are the following: 1. No more that two physical boxes, counting the speakers, and I don't want to have a laptop in the bedroom (as opposed to, say, an ipad). 2. Play internet radio from the web. Pandora, MOG etc. perhaps nice but not at all necessary. 3. Play music from my library, which currently sits on a NAS. The library is served to my main system by (for the moment) iTunes on an old Macbook Pro, and is served to the Squeezebox by Squeezebox Server on the same machine. (At some point I would like to go back to a small, dedicated linux box, but I upgraded my Wyred 4 Sound DAC1 for HR, and the DAC now requires special drivers, and they don't have Linux versions.) 4. If the device played white noise or music on a timer, that would be a plus. 5. The alarm function must play internet radio off a playlist I provide (as opposed to the urls iTunes provides, which are often out of date and not for the right stations. I currently wake up to an NPR station one timezone behind mine, since the local sometimes has no available connections. I had envisioned, for instance, streaming to my ipad and then playing on a peachtree audio deepblue (overkill), but I can't find alarm clock apps that can play music streamed from an offboard library and/or radio from a url. A box which feeds the deepblue with an ipad controller is three boxes. I really don't need sound as good as deepblue either. Ideas?
