Music Player Daemon if you're a bit more advanced. You need to be able to do some configs on the commandline. It is a great application for network audio streaming. Remote control via iPhone app and Firefox is possible.

I recently figured that VLC is doing a pretty good job in the audio world too.
It is an interesting player which comes with interesting tweaking options and tons of plugins. It is available on all OSes .
Beside that I am using it for video playback of course. ( Probably the best video player) The HTML interface is pretty basic - I wouldn't use it at this stage.

With the Squeezebox all above become obsolete. Non one of them is as comortable to use as my iPeng/SqueezboxCenter combination.
Sad to see your linux solutions become obsolete though...

How about squeezebox stock before mod? Does squeezebox-spdif-dac sound better than usb->spdif->dac?

Let see. My Linux quest is put on hold for the time being. Though there are tons of applications for my solution I guess.

Well here are the tweaks I intend to implement -As I intend to operate this wired & only for my 44.1KHz music :
- tapping I2S
- removing WiFi card
- removing 1.2V & 3.3V switching regulators
- supplying clean external 1.2V & 3.3V
- Remove the 11.289 crystal and R104.
- Inject a new clock to pin 42 of the Xilinx or on the side of R104 which is connected to pin 42
- Unsolder/disconnect pin 14 (vcc) from the 74HC04.

Can you say what else you have done?

Default Where is the wiki

Hi,
I have had the wiki bookmarked for years and now it has disappeared! anyone know how to access it please. I am setting up a new PC with studio 9.10 and want to go through the set up of Alsa fo USB and sampling etc. I also can't remember where to mount the music to play. I think it was on a Ramdisk.
Cheers,
rob
