I use iPad mini with my Aurender N10. No compromises vs regular iPad except smaller screen size.

If you have not bought the mini yet, I would wait until March. Apple is going to launch new version of iPad mini. The new mini 6 is expected to have 8.4” screen without any increase to the physical dimensions of current iPad mini 5.
Using Mini with lots of the apps mentioned above. One nice touch in Lumin app is you can pinch album art to display whatever size you prefer.
Just started using Roon, and have to figure out how I can do the same as the default 2 rows of larger covers makes it more tedious to scroll thru my large collection. Other than that minor issue, Roon on mini is great too.
I don't think you'll regret getting an iPad Mini for remote. Spring for a comfortable leather cover! Cheers,
One thing to be aware of: older iPad mini’s may not be able to run current versions of the software you want to use. I had a first generation mini that I was using to control my Auralic streamer (with the Auralic Lightning software). At some point a few years ago it became unusable (for that purpose), because it wouldn’t run the newer iOS system software and that was required for the newer Auralic software. So, yeah, go for the newer version for maximum longevity.
