I don't think so, unless you're a real expert.  That's a very tough install, BTW.  And it's *extremely* analytical in sound.


If you want to try Linux, get Snakeoil-OS. Boot it from a USB stick and select the "Try Linux" option instead of "Install Linux."  It's better when installed, and it's also not the richest-sounding version of Linux/MPD but it will give you a sense.  You might also try Daphile, which is a complete playback system based on Linux.  Both can be auditioned but a dual-install is not possible.


For the best MPD sound, IMO, look at "Operating systems and there sound signatures" under Music Servers.  I offer updated instructions on this:
