Raspberry Pi and Plex = poor mans single room Sonos alternative?

My friend has a multi-room Sonos system. I like the idea that he can pick up his phone/tablet, browse music, select something and have it play to one of the speakers in his house. I'd like to have this experience too - but not spend as much and limit it to only the stereo in one room. Will a Raspberry Pi running Plex plugged into a stereo give me this? [more inside]

Plex Alternative for Cataloging/Playing Ripped DVDs in Video_TS format?

I have a number of ripped DVDs that maintain the original DVD file structure. VLC can play them fine. So can built in DVD players. I like Plex for the way it catalogs and organizes the files for me, but it never played that structure back very well, and in newer released versions it isn't even trying to play it any longer. Is there something with same cataloging features of Plex that can seamlessly pass the file to VLC or some other program for play back? Solutions for Mac and/or Windows are welcome. Extra credit if there is a client/server implementation that could actually play these files through something like Roku.

Help me find a Roku Soundbridge replacement

My Roku Soundbridge died after many years. What's the cheapest, standalone device that will play with my Slimserver setup (aka SqueezeCenter, Logitech Media Center)? All I need is an audio out to hit my receiver, no need for built in speakers, fancy screen or anything else. I'd be interested if there were any other alternatives to Slimserver. The web interface, accessible by any device, and the fact it deals with large collections well, are reasons I currently keep it. [more inside]
