thanks for helping to build this list

There is a wifi dlna adapter with 30 pin iphone-ipod connector, I think you can convert any ipod-iphone 30 pin speaker in DLNA speaker to work with SmartThings, I think the difference between this adaper and sabranet wifi could be the volume control , its possible this adapter could change internaly the speaker volume and not just the audio source volume, someone could confirm this adapter ? thanks WeSahre Music

Rocki has been reported is working with Generic media renderer

Kodi was working fine on win 7, but it is not detected on OPENelec.

D-Link Wi-Fi Audio Extender and Repeater DCH-M225 looks a great product, its airplay and dlna, works with Generic MediaRenderer , reported by @NinjaBread

Picked up two Sonos Play 3 speakers last night before I saw this. I already have a Sony 30pin dock speaker that sounds pretty decent, so I went ahead and ordered one of these WeShare adapters to test out. I’ll report back. Hopefully if all goes well, I’ll return the Sonos Play 3s.

HI @Phil_AbiNajm, Great news, we like you share yor experience, Sonos is a great system, and it has more features than just to work with SmartThings, if you goal is to play messages in ST, then WeSare or any other DLNA speaker is the best.

Lario HD Airplay DLNA 30 pin adapter.

Convert your old dock speaker in DLNA and Airplay

It has DLNA and would works with Generic Media Renderer

Now $14.99 in amazon

LOL, I actually canceled my order for the WeShare the other day (bad reviews) when I saw this one… The Lario is on it’s way, so I’ll follow up once I get a chance to tinker with it.

Hi @officerduck, great news, have you installed custom smart apps in you SmartThings system?

I suggest you to read the first post of the Generic Media Renderer, it has many important information about how works DLNA and how to play music working with SmartThings. RELEASE Generic Media Renderer (DLNA Speakers). Cheap Sonos Alternative (Update V2)

If you have questions after read the post, send us your questions to speed up your installation.

thanks for share your experiences

I got my Rasberry Pi B+ working as a DLNA renderer. You can then connect that to any other audio speaker (external speaker, A/V receiver via HDMI/3.5mm). It’s a really stable option. The only issue is that the built in 3.5mm output jack on the RPi is not very good - I don’t think it’s filtered, so it causes buzzing/humming. Easily remedied by using a USB to 3.5mm adapter, or sending Audio out over HDMI. Here’s a link to the tutorial I followed. It takes about an hour to configure the software from scratch. I’ve tested it a lot and it’s very stable even with reboots etc. This also made my wife happy as I didn’t need to spend money on ‘another device’! I originally bought my RPi to act as my home automation hub but the software (HomeSeer) was powerful, but too techy/clunky, so a year or so later I ended up with ST. Anyway…

The link below takes you to a different post/page on the same website listed in the first post of this thread for the RPi. This link is for setting up the RPi just as a DLNA renderer and this is all you need for it to connect to ST as a ‘speaker’
