Audiophile Synology Server

Hi guys, I have a big music collection all in AIFF and in FLAC (no MP3 or compressed audio formats).

I store all the collection on a Synology RS814, that has inside DSM 6 without audio station software or anything else. It only shares the library folder to with my Mac Mini with Audirvana 2.0 Plus, that is connected to my Naim V1 DAC. In this way I can control with the A+ remote app on my phone and tablet the music I want to play on my hifi.

 

I would love to listen to my music also outside my home so I was thinking to install an app similar to Plex Media Server, so that I can access both with an app and with the Web Interface (from computers). What alternatives do I have? Maybe something specialised for music and not for videos or else.

Audio Station is good.

 

For transcoding (out of home with limited b/w) Plex and BubbleUPnP Server.

 

I use Plex for out of home streaming.

Thank you.

I have searched for a while about the Audio Station and I will probably stick with it. It seams very complete and pretty easy to use. Overwise if I can't get used to it I will switch to Plex (also because you can limit bandwidth usage).

 

Thank you,

Federico

Audio Station has made my life easy... even with being able to add radio and streaming services.

 

There are many media home servers for the PC that enable out of home streaming, some even for the NAS. However, since moving to Plex it has been an entirely different experience particularly because of Plex apps. They are available for all smartphones and tablets and just work. I've tried other media servers and they leave a lot to be desired especially in terms of apps and interface. Even at home I can utilize Windows and NAS sharing and then use an Android explorer app like ES File Explorer for local streaming. It can even be setup for out of home streaming. But all that hassle is easily fixed with a Plex account, Plex server, and Plex apps. Your content is safe, the apps are optimized for performance and all it costs is the price of an app. I'm not using Plex Pass either. The good thing is it transcodes even video for smartphone and tablet streaming out of home... and it works very well too. My wife streams movies in the car, and it works perfectly too on 3G.

Thanks for the advice!

I will try them both as soon as I can.
