Hi.

Interesting project. I'll give it a try.

Though I'm wondering what the term "Audiophile" means in the context of Daphile!?!?

How about squeezelite support instead of squeezeplay??


Is there a way to just configure a basic player installation of Daphile without all the server, ripping, asf functionality.
That would deliver a nice server/client networking solution.
As far as I understand Daphile currently acts the same way as MPD. It's basically a local server and player. Please correct me, if I'm wrong.



Cheers

This is what I answered to the same question at the hydrogenaudio forum:
First of all Daphile is “only” software (familiar comment from HW guys ;-) so I limit the answer to that scope. If a software solution is capable of giving the bitperfect and gapless playback stream (without disruptions or at least very minimal) to hardware using the audiophile class input file formats then I would say that software is completely neutral in respect to audio playback quality. And that would be my main criteria for 'audiophile class' qualification.

I later commented about 'audiophile class input file formats' the following (for question: what are these?):
The best that's available. Lossless format with different sampling rates and sample sizes. Minimum CD quality 44.1kHz 16bit. Different container formats: flac, wav, aiff, wv, ... (DRM free). Daphile does not support everything. DSD formats are still missing - I'll try to work on that.

I have tried but had some problems (one related to minor audio glitches in some situations, don't remember exactly anymore). Squeezeplay (that I have patched a little bit) just performed better. I haven't checked the latest Squeezelite version but I currently I don't see any problems with Squeezeplay and no reason to swap.

You can use Daphile also as a player client for existing server. At least the local media server and file server can disabled. I don't remember the CD ripping (you can ignore it).

Thanks for your feedback.

I currently focus on getting the basic functionality developed with x86_64 and I don't want split my limited resources on supporting multiple platforms.

I'll reconsider to broaden platform support later.

Hi Kipeta:

Daphile lose the track when going to different sampling frequency.
Need to restart.

CryptoTerm shows:

Connection error occurred
Code: 10061
Server is not available

Thanks for your gift.

Juan.

Daphile does not have ssh server enabled.

Could describe the sampling frequency change problem in detail? What DAC are you using? Is the problem somehow repeatable?

Daphile looks very interesting for a Linux newbies (like me), but with best possible soundquality in mind, has anyone already compared Daphile for soundquality with other Linux distributions? Could someone please comment on this issue?
