Slightly off-topic but fun: A few weeks ago I was getting ready to brush my teeth before bed and decide to as "Alexa: Play Chopin." Alexa proceeded to "Play Chopin from Spotify." It was Nocturne #2. The next track: Nocturne #2 - different pianist. The following track: Nocturne #2 - obviously yet a different interpretation. I asked "Alexa: Who is playing the current track?" to which she responded "Chopin."

Brilliant.

Try emby. https://www.emby.media
should do the trick. I prefer it over Plex 


Won’t play resolutions over 16/48, and I see no indication it will play aiff files (or DSD).

I recently transferred an edited version of my music library to WAV and FLAC and then to a Samsung 1tB Portable SSD, to be connected to the Infotainment system in my 2016 VW Golf R. The system didn't like AIFF files, or 2tB drives, or more than 30K files but it all plays well and is accessible thru the Car Infotainment interface. I can also stream Quboz or Tidal thru a Dragonfly Red plugged into the phone but the phone interface is a little sketchy on the move. I did once try Roon on an old Mac laptop with an iPad mini as remote and that was OK but somewhat fiddly. Next step will be CarPlay as used by others. Putting the transfer library together reminded me how few CDs or downloads I buy these days but it does encourage me to listen to stuff I already have. Listening to 30K tracks will take some time........


diw[br]AIFF files including 24/44, 24/88 and 24/96 stored on Glyph hard drive- MacMini - Lavry DA11- Sanders ESL speakers and Amps

I've dealt with supplying FLAC files to my car audio systems in two ways:

 

Old Car - WD wireless HDD running PLEX >> iPad running 8player via HDD's own WiFi >> apple CCK >> USB to SPDIF >> Audison Bit one processor >> Audion amps and speakers/sub

New Car came with decent audio system - FiiO X7 II with 2 512GB cards running Neutron app >> Aux out via a wire >> car's Aux in

 

New way is much simpler and easier, and the price of 1 TB cards is coming down, so you can have 2TB in many of the FiiO players. My brother has a similar setup and uses bluetooth.
