What is your setup for music?

my next project will be to add music in the balcony, im not a flac hoarder so im gonna need something to play from online sources, youtube mainly.
was thinking of using some android box but not sure how it will integrate with HA and google ass.
would like to know what is the common practice here.

Have a look at volumio. I think it has HA control. Can run the gammet of feeding into an amp to feeding into passive speakers depending on what hardware (raspberry pi + DAC + amp) combinations you choose.

Speakers + Amp split by rooms or zones. This is great, flexible and does not stop work when company end support.

Music source i used Chromecast and now switch to echo dots. This is out of laziness and they cheap enough to replace every few years.
