I also used Daphile for a long time. Until recently I started to try Volumio. I will continue to try Moode & pCP and try to see which player's sound quality is more appealing to me.

However, in terms of current experience, stand-alone playback I think RPI's player has higher clarity and transparency, and the sound field is loose and natural, and listening to music is less stressful; however, if it is changed to Client-Server mode (Daphile machine is Server, another Win 10 PC with Squeezelite-X installed as a client to play music), the sound quality of the Daphile system is absolutely amazing, because you should never hear this high-quality sound on the CAS system.

Sincerely recommend fans who love music, you have the opportunity to play the full mode!

Hello, how do I know what quality of TIDAL is being played thru Daphile ?
I have a TIDAL HiFi subscription, my DAC doesn't support MQA. Thank you.

Hi, will I get a better sound by splitting the server and the Daphile player's role to two NUC? The server will be NUC 8i5 (4 cores) 16 GB RAM, 240 SSD and as a player NUC 5i3 8GB 240 SSD (2 cores, my current NUC on both rolls). Thank you for your advice

I'd be rather shocked if even a single NUC would use more than a small fraction of it's processing power running daphile.

thanks for your opinion, has anyone tried to divide these roles?

Well, e.g. upsamling to DSD512 takes huge CPU power. Why would people do it? Not a question for me :-)

DSD256 upsampling on a Core i3/8th gen NUC sees a peak usage of 1.2-1.5%.

I don't have a DSD512 system but I can guarantee it will not be 'huge' CPU usage.

Thank you for your feedback. I am interested in whether the division of server - player roles brings some sound progress. Even my current i3 / 8GB is fully sufficient to both roles, I do not resample FLAC to the DSD. DSD playing natively, WAV and FLAC resampling to 24/176 or 24/192.

I think the message is that if one machine can do it with only 1-2% load, two machines won't bring any benefit.
