Daphile is a one-person project, but that one person has done a masterful job at leveraging the best pieces of Linux and other open source tools to build Daphile. Installed on a micro PC that need not be a computing powerhouse, I have a flexible, customizable music server and streamer. This includes plugins that allow the user to stream from Tidal, Deezer, Quboz, Spotify and other services.

There is a partnership between Daphile and the folks behind LMS: Lyrion Music Server, formerly known as Logitech Media Server. Much of the customizability is a product of that partnership.

You could pay a lot of money to buy a prepackaged, one-box solution that does what Daphile does. Think of the BlueSoound Node 2 or the ifi Zen Streamer.

Here at my home office I use the USB output from the micro PC running Daphile to the input of my DAC. I stream music from my home network drive, or internet radio stations like Radio Paradise, JB Radio 2, or Naim Classical. Alternatively, I can access my Tidal account and stream directly from Tidal through Daphile.

Sincere thanks to Daphile for allowing greater enjoyment of my music.

Excelente Reproductor de Audio, muy completo y gratuito!
Felicitaciones para quienes lo desarrollan y mantienen actualizado.
Que integre música local en muchos formatos, además de audio streaming como Spotify, Tidal, y Youtube, emisoras de radio. Manejo de forma remota desde un celular, tablet o PC a través de cualquier navegador web.
No tienen idea de a cuantas personas hacen felices con esta distro. Gracias!!!!, gracias y gracias nuevamente!!!!
Mi única sugerencia sería mejorar su interfaz, aunque con la APP Squeezer va muy bien!!!

First, this project is an excellent example of love of music and the community of people who are likeminded. Yes. the user interface is not as slick as others but, this FREE and a labor of love. The sound is excellent. When tweaked to take advantage of the hardware it's installed on the results are without a doubt - on par with many of the PAID apps out there.

That said I am not sure where it goes from here as LMS is no longer available and the MySqueezeBox accounts are no longer available. This has disabled the "My Apps" on my installation.

So, it may be farewell to Daphile, one of the excellent examples of a FREE headless streaming server. I remain a fan.
