Hi All,
I am trying to work may way around finding solution for streaming audio from NAS to my receiver (controlled via smart phone app). I see that my options are Logitech Squeezebox (phased out) , Sonos connect (expensive) and other 500+ network players from Denon, Marantz....
I wanted to know if there are other options to make this work with out spending too much as my receiver will do the DA job.

Prob with sonos connect/ZP90
Its really expensive for what it does ($350)
can not play files greater than 16 bps

any and all help will be appreciated.
Thanks,

If you can add a display near your receiver, you can use wdtv. Wdtv can stream from NFS as well as samba mount. It also does most of the internet radio including spotify (need premium sub). Wdtv has both iOS and android app, but you still need a display like at least a 7" LCD ($20 in amazon/eBay) or better a tv to browse between various apps.

I use this:

Streams from my server to my Yamaha RX-A3000 just fine.
