    Thank you for this link! I only had access to the other forum that they moved too. People seemed to just argue about not liking the new forum and I was scared by the lack of posts. Thought nobody owned a Synology since not many posts on new forum.

    So ITunes Match went haywire on my perfect library again. Done with that BS. I loaded a bunch of music on my NAS. The music is airplayed to either of my Denon 7200wa. I’ve got one in my man cave and one in the living room. I’ve got a 7.2.4 setup in my man cave all B&W speakers. My living room I’ve just got B&W 683 s2 in stereo. The music streaming from the NAS over my network sounds incredible! Only issue is the DS Audio app is kinda clunky for playback it was hard to stop songs or even change songs through the app. Any advice for that?

    Honestly I just want my music on the NAS and be able to stream it throughout the house. I'm a tennis pro and we like to listen to music while training so access to my NAS would be ideal (outside) the house. Itunes match messed up again today so I'm cutting that cord. Which software should I use?

    Just the fact that I’m having to duplicate steps instead of having it back up straight to time machine or backup straight to my music library on the NAS. Anything with life has a learning curve but I’m not even sure where to start. I don’t know of a guide to follow and Synology doesn’t really point you in the correct direction.

    My music collection will fit once I get everything transferred over but I haven’t discovered all the benefits since I’m not familiar with LINUX and I’m slightly intimidated. Currently anything I rip I rip through my MacBook and back it up to a external drive before transferring to the DS. I’ve wanted to test streaming music to my Denon 7200wa but not sure if I should use DLNA or Airplay.

    I bought your book and basically try to follow your advice. I’m a huge Deahead but I’m too young to have gotten to see them play in person. I have been to 72 Widespread shows which isn’t the same but not a lot I can do. I own own a rather extensive music collection with all the GD commercial releases plus all traders vault unofficial releases. Same with Widespread but that music collection at least official release is not near as massive. My music collection got wrecked by Apple Music years back and I’ve finally everything re-ripped etc. Ive got two MacBooks and I’ve been doing the external hard drive thing but I’ve got 6 different ones and it’s getting difficult. I honestly want Time Machine backed up and my Music back up and that’s about it. I bought 2 4 TB WD RED hard drives but so far the NAS hasn’t made my life easier. Kirk you still managing your library on two computer and using the 2Tb wd cloud nas?
  8. I got a Synology DS218+ for Christmas. I have a large iTunes library and currently use ITunes Match. I would like to use the Nas for backing up my music library. Time Machine and watching movies. Did I buy the correct device? What else would you recommend?

    Pros and Cons of CarPlay?

    This article is old and doesn’t apply. You can put apps in any order you desire. It’s also super snappy a tons of apps are allowed now.

    Pros and Cons of CarPlay?

    I’ve had CarPlay for over 3 years and I can’t imagine not having CarPlay. It’s amazing. Waze support is huge. My 2016 Honda Accord Touring was one of the first that got Carplay. I choose the Accord over the Maxima because of this feature. Your phone is fully functional with CarPlay. It’s nothing like Airplay. Album art is great on my car. Siri control it’s amazing.

    Playing my music in the car, problems

    I click that button and it will find any song via Siri. It doesn’t do albums. The heads up display does with my fingers. Super easy. Allowed to look forward.

    What kind of car? My voice prompt system is disabled when using CarPlay because I’m then using Siri. Do you have wireless CarPlay?

    I’m not sure what you mean. I’ve been using CarPlay for 3 years in a Honda Accord Touring 2016. Once CarPlay is connected via lightning connector then Bluetooth is disabled. I’ve used ITunes Match with 25,000 songs through CarPlay the entire time. You don’t have to work on the phone. You can use Siri or the CarPlay screen on the heads up display. Same with Spotify, Pandora or Amazon Music.
