I beg to differ regarding Ropieee - I used both Ropieee and Hifiberrry OS.
If you have hifiberry HAT’s I highly recommend using hifiberry OS. It has Airplay, Spotify, DLNA, and a few other protocols out of the box - you can disable those you don’t need.
For me Ropiee’s implementation of Airplay never worked properly, hifiberry OS worked perfectly out of the box. If you want a remote they have an extremely convenient and cheap RF remote that also works out of the box, no setup required. Since it uses RF instead of IR you can hide the device and the remote will work without a direct line of sight to the player.
Added bonus - hifiberry OS has a web interface that also works out of the box without any setup required and it actually looks great.
I have no affiliation I just think the product is great.
