I can't find an audio setup to be in line with my needs.
I need suggestions on a versatile setup. These are my needs:

1) I listen to music 100% from online streaming services. Mainly Spotify Premium, 320kbps OGG
2) I'd like it to use it to listen to movies too trough my TV
3) I'll prefer to have it wireless, so that i can use it from all my devices
4) My budget is 350 euro max

I know i won't get true hifi with this money, but I believe audio systems setups have evolved in the last years and with a little bit of creativity, there's a lot you can get with that money.
I've looked at:

1) http://www.raspyfi.com/ : interesting, but quite a bit of work needed to get a good system up and running (hw and sw)
2) Sonos play 3 + hub: can't connect it to TV + not great sound quality + don't need a multi room setup
3) Bluetooth systems like Onkyo LS-3100: not bad, but lacking a bit on the sound quality side
4) Classic amp+speaker setup: not sure here, as some are lacking digital connections and wifi/BT

Suggestions appreciated
