Audio player operated via 5" screen/remote

Hello,

I see there are some audio player distributions for RPi, but I am looking specifically for one that can be operated via 5" screen from distance of 1-2 meters (and a remote, to be precise).
Which of them would offer appropriate UI - I would like to output audio via HiFiBerry Digi+ to an amp.

Thanks for any tips,

Rather than try to fabricate a diy control interface based on a 5" screen perhaps just use a phone or tablet for remote control and wire the display to the pi to provide status info and perhaps on-device controls..

Thanks, but it's too cumbersome. You need to keep loaded smartphone/tablet around, plus children tend to treat these things badly.

What I need is (I think) just a line of icons along the top plus the rest for the text.

You can try Peppy player. It has disk image for 5" touchscreen:

Also it can be controlled from any mobile device or computer via web browser,
IR remote control and many other ways.

You can find more info about player functionality here:
https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy.doc/wiki

If you will have any issues with player installation/usage just let me know.
There is a separate thread for this player right here:

You can make this as a family project and involve your kids to the assembling process :)
