Daphile is easy to use even for the novice, it's stable, it works flawlessly and the sound it produces is magical especially for high-def and DSD recordings. I run it on an ITX mini computer with 4GB memory which I keep running 24x7; I have a 2 terabyte external drive attached to it with the music files. I also use Pandora and Spotify via Daphile plugins. I have an external cd/dvd attached which I use for ripping CDs. I use the built in CD ripper and the built in backup function to backup music to a NAS (I could have set Daphile up to read the music directly from the NAS but I like having the music files directly attached to the mini-PC instead of going over a network). I use my laptop PC and/or tablet or phone (using Orange Squeeze) as my interface with Daphile. I take the USB output from the Daphile mini- ITX and run it thought a Benchmark DAC for my main stereo. Sweet! I also can play music through a Squeezebox radio or Boom. I have used Daphile since it's beginnings coming to it after Logitech dropped support for Squeezebox and since I have never even thought of going to something else like Sonos. I'm not sure I understand the reviewers issues. For me Daphile just works and performs beautifully with no fuss. Bravo to the developer Kimmo!

I have Daphile running on a HP Thin client T5730 I bought second hand for very little money. My music is on a NAS. I have connected Daphile to my living room stereo over USB (my pre-amp has a built in USB DAC). I don't recognise the installation problems reported in the review. I am very pleased with Daphile. It costs almost nothing and in return you get a very reliable and stable music player with high-end music quality. Daphile integrates with my stereo - I can use the remote of my pre-amplifier for basic transport commands to Daphile (play/pause, next, previous and volume control). Daphile is stable and robust and the maker is extremely helpful and responsive - support is better than for many commercial products.
