Another one here on the piCorePlayer + Material UI train.

I find it to be the most robust platform, with very little latency and usability issues with UI/UX. It's very quick to operate and feels very much like a native app, despite being web operated. I found both Moode and Volumio absolutely hated browsing of large libraries on slower phones/tablets. Their UIs are not nearly as customizable, either.

Not sure how lean Moode and Volumio are but: "piCorePlayer is built on a very small linux distro which is only about 12 MB, known as piCore Linux. It boots very fast and it is running entirely in RAM, it doesn't write to the SD-card unless you want to save a new setting. Therefore, pCP is very robust and you can simply pull the power without any risk of corruption of your SD card."
