My System Specs

Default

Unified Remote + https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bbleupnp&hl=en is what I've been using on an android device for basic playback.

Depending on how small of a case you want to go with, an APU might not be for you. I tried to run an APU in a M350 case ( http://products.ncix.com/detail/ncix...k-8f-69470.htm ) and found it would lock up under full load. Removing the cover seemed to resolve the issue so it's more than likely a heat issue (lack of airflow) or possibly higher heat being produced by components because the system is drawing too much power for the Pico PSU.

Now that I've moved that hardware over to a larger case I'm now waiting for Christmas day because I have a sneaking suspicion (ok... I ordered the bloody thing myself... :) ) that I've got one of these under the tree..... http://products.ncix.com/detail/giga...d-4a-89871.htm . Much lower power consumption so I'm hoping that it will be fine inside the M350. My usage is going to be audio files so I'm not overly concerned about playback over HDMI, but I believe this is supposed to be able to do it fine.
