I tried moode and volumio and could not get either to connect to my NAS (FreeNAS 9.3 with anonymous access to the shared music folder). I tried everything I (read, a Google search) could come up with and nothing.

I've given both the flick and will now use the Pi2 as a car computer.

Tim's new MoodeOS wth rel. 2.6 is going to be a big, big upgrade - some great new features and a much smaller package, based on Jessie Lite.

I've use Volumio 1.55 but MoOde has replaced it. Volumio V2 should be interesting but it has been ages since the dev was launched and to date there is no stable release. MoOde's Tim Curtis is very responsive and has built a nice system which just works for me. The new MoOde OS should be very interesting. Am looking forward to it.

I have used Moode with my freenas since I first started playing with music players - it works just great.

If you can't get it to connect, check the log on FreeNAS - it's fairly informative about what the error was.

Or, post your shared folder configuration (FreeNAS end) and I'm sure I can work out the config for you.

Hi,

I want to share my exeprience as I used the 3 software Volumio, Runeaudio and Moode Audio.

I started using Volumio, I switched to Runeaudio because in my opinion it is the best user interface comparing Volumio and Moode, then I tried Moode audio and find a significant audio quality improvement (I don't know why, maybe because of ALSA?) so I left Runeaudio to go Moode Audio.



Cheers,

I've had my RPi/PiDAC combo streaming music for over 18 months and never felt the need to use Moode, Rune or Volumio. Just install MPD on top of whatever OS distro you have installed on your Pi, configure the MPD conf file and away you go.

There's plenty of MPD clients out there for Windows/Linux/Android et al. Personally I use MPDroid on my Android devices and Ario on my Linux PCs.

This is like buying new furniture. You can buy it either assembled or disassembled. Some people prefer assembled the other disassembled. But you are right functionality/sound quality wise I don't think that assembled system is better if you know what and where should be tuned for better sound. You can consider those systems just as a web UI on top of mpd assembled into Linux image.

Have been going back and forth a billion times between different rpi distros.
Running an i2s dac direct from it.
My verdict is as follows.
Archphile for sound quality
Picoreplayer (LMS) for functionality

Rune, Volume and Moode did not do the trick for me.

I'm curious in hearing more about your comparisons and why you find archphile better.

I have to agree on both accounts: my intention when using something like Moode or Volumio is first and foremost to have great audio.

While looking at comparisons I was expecting from the subjective "This sounded better" to the very technical: "This is better because the re sampling algorithm is this an that". I was surprised that all comparisons discuss User Inteface and many other (for me) secondary differences.

So, I did an a-c, b-c comparison (not being able to do a side by side as I have only one raspberry). So I set up Spotify premium at extreme settings and changed inputs from Spotify to the Raspeberry first with Volumio, then to Moode both with hi res 24/96 samples of the same song.

The difference, in my opinion, was significant! For me, Volumio sounded a little worse than Spotify. This was surprising as the file was a (supposedly) much better source, yet, still, it sounded worse. Moode, on the other hand, presented the 'edge' I was looking for when going for this setup vs only streamed music. Sound was more spacious and the dynamic ranges of the higher frequencies were cleaner.

So, as of today (Dec 2016), Moode is, for me and from an audio quality perspective, the better option.

Hope this helps others,
Best regards,
Rafa.
