Re: Best way to stream music to analog stereo?

Hi A DAC via the USB port is the solution I use. Your DAC will show up as a 'USB Speakers', and it can be selected via the DS Audio Application (web or iPad). That way you send your music directly from the NAS to the DAC -> which converts it to Analogue for your Arcam. The other solution is a stream...

Re: DLNA broken on update to 5.2 - help please?!

Similar issue here. I have re-installed the Media Server & Audio Station and then it appeared again. Not the right way todo it of course, but couldn't find another way.

Re: Gapless Audio Transcoding

Hi Gary,

OK, now I understand the question: the issue only when you are using 'Transcoding'. Sorry for missing that in my previous post.

Re: Gapless Audio Transcoding

I think this depends on your streamer. There are not that many streamers that can actually do gapless playback. I had an Onkyo & Yamaha AV receiver and they couldn't do 'gapless playback'. I now have a Cambridge Audio Stream Magic and that can do Gapless. The Pioneer N90 (I think) also can do gaples...

Re: DSM 5.2-5565 Update 1

Also with the USB connection there is something seriously wrong. I use the USB connection as output to my DAC. On rebooting the USB port seems to trigger multiple On/Off commands within a couple of seconds to my DAC. which comes out of standbye and is immedeatly switched off ! This happens only duri...

Re: Hibernation is not working after DSM 5.2-5565 Update 1

Thanks for this information but this is a bit ridiculous ! It is just an update and you have to go through this kind of tricky serious manipulation after this !? In my humble opinion this is unacceptable. they need to provide a hotfix for this kind of problem !

Re: DSM 5.2-5565 Update 1

I don't want to have my disks spinning e.g. in the week-end, when I am out of the house for a number of hours. The pennies is not the issue, neither the discussions if it is OK or not OK for the disks. The point is : there is a feature that works before the update, and doesn't after the update. And ...

Re: DSM 5.2-5565 Update 1

Suffering from the Hibernation issue as some others. *sigh* I really knew it when I upgraded this morning. It was working fine before the upgrade, and now with this last one, it is broken again. I am reallly getting tired of this Synology. I was going to buy a DS415+ in the near future, but this giv...

Re: Stream music directly to device from Synology

You can use a Cambridge Audio Stream Magic DAC on the USB of the Synology. Then you select USB Speakers, from within the AudioStation application. this can be either on a laptop/PC or on an iPad. It is the Synology itself that streams, so once the queue created, it will just play, independent from t...

Re: Last.fm scrobbling

Sadly enough I have been requesting this as well for over 3 years now. Synology doesn't want to listen . so if anybody has a native work-around (scrobbling done on the Synology itself, not on the client side) I am very very interested !
