Help getting spotify running on rpi4 4GB on PiOS

The pi shelf is filling up. Got the pi zero running pi hole. The pi 3 is running docker with some apps. Pi 4 is my Plex and storage server with a 2 TB hdd. And the old pi b is going to be a Spotify device.

Is there any benefit to a Streaming component if I already have a good DAC and I’m comfortable using a computer as a streaming source?
1 project | reddit.com/r/audiophile | 15 Dec 2021
You're not going to beat the laptop on quality, but for the same quality you could beat it on size and power, if you wanted. A Raspberry Pi running https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify will be equally controllable from your phones, and quite compact.
Spotify Connect on my old HiFi

I use a raspberry pi 4 with raspotify connected to a usb dac, it works super well! The config file lets you set the device name, type, and music bitrate.
Raspberry pi WiFi streaming to HiFi system
2 projects | reddit.com/r/audiophile | 2 Dec 2021
I don't have any control or library software built into my setup. I'm only running https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify for Spotify Connect and https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync for AirPlay streaming, so I have no need to interact directly with the Pi during normal usage. It's all controlled from my phone or PC natively.
Headless music player - using Spotify?
1 project | reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi | 15 Nov 2021
https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify Use raspotify on the PI directly, it turns it into a Spotify Connect target. I use that on my PI that runs alot of other crap that is headless. For the amplifier I'd rather get a cheap auto head-unit that has an Aux-in, as those are made to run on 12V directly and are, well, cheap.
Which Spotify library to use for headless Linux audio player box?

I would suggest using raspberry pi's as clients with a Snapcast/ Mopidy combination.
Suggestions on Home entertainment

After a lot of additional search i found Snapcast which can consume UPnP and seems to do exactly what i want. I have to look into it more thoroughly though.
Ask HN: Why isn't there a standard network audio protocol?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 14 Apr 2022
There are some projects like Snapcast or SoundSync (disclaimer: I'm the creator of Soundsync) to let multiple devices communicate together on the same network. The transmission-side isn't that complex: you choose an audio codec, transmit chunks of data and add a synchronization layer (to keep multiple outputs in sync and to correctly delay video playback to match the soundtrack). The bigger problem is building an ecosystem big enough to make it attractive. Bluetooth sucks but is everywhere.

Snapserver supports librespot with the pipe backend: https://github.com/badaix/snapcast/blob/master/doc/player_setup.md

but https://github.com/badaix/snapcast, https://sound.balenalabs.io/, https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/ and https://github.com/mopidy/mopidy should give a good basic frame... i only need to find out how to puzzle or combine them to make them work. Thank you!
One Raspberry + multiple USB sound cards + Spotify + multiroom
1 project | reddit.com/r/RASPBERRY_PI_PROJECTS | 1 Feb 2022
I'm a big fan of snapcast. One Pi can act as the server (I use an rpi2 for mine) and can send audio out to the clients in sync. Not sure about Orange Pi compatibility but I think it'd work as long as it's running some debian derivative.
Low-latency audio streaming (local network)
