Thanks Yatsushiro, both good o.s but will take ages for me to digest.

For me "audiophile audio" means bitperfect delivery from the player to the soundcard. Any linux distribution can do that, it's all about the respective player configuration.

To make sure no software volume is in the chain, I would avoid pulseaudio. That leaves you with direct output to alsa.

Do you want to play youtube in a browser, or using some specialized tool? Latest Firefox supports only PA. Chrome should play to alsa with config option --alsa-output-device List of Chromium Command Line Switches << Peter Beverloo .

Basically any player can play flacs these days. Some people like audacious.

Squeezelite has no GUI, you would have to install whole Logitech Media Server.

Lighter rather well-supported distribution is e.g. Lubuntu. The LTS 16.4 version is supported for 5 years.

Or if you are more advanced, you can pick a rolling-upgrades distribution like Arch linux Arch Linux - Best distro ever? | AkitaOnRails.com
I tried lubuntu with audacious and liked that but it did show up a basic problem that I cant monopolize the tv monitor just to play music, its a shared tv. So I will keep daphile system and the other system for video.
Thanks for the help getting here.

I cant use daphile on it as it has its own exclusive o.s. but wondered if there was anything similar I could use on puppy tahr that was of similar quality as an audio player.
Thanks

You may still use Daphile. On your media server, you just need to install logitech media server. Thereafter, in your Daphile settings, you just need to set it up for an external logitech media server by inserting the ip address for your logitech media server.

Or another option are two monitors. I like it for my HTPC - the auxiliary work gets done on a smaller LCD, the movie runs on living room TV.

Could I add logitech media server to my existing operating system or is it an operating system itself.

It is a package that runs on top of an existing OS, like Debian. The main issue will be ensuring that you can source all the pre-reqisites for any particular Distro.

This Debian Package - SqueezeboxWiki should run on any Distro that is based on Debian (Ubuntu, anything that is Ubuntu based.. Rasbian, etc)
