YOu don't seem to be having much luck with your Macs. Is it still under warranty?

You have upto 6 years to claim under the Sale of Goods Act maybe worth a go, I hear Apple are quite good with warranty repairs. Yes cdp are easier thats why I have kept my 20 year old one, seems more reliable than the modern ones to.

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

Yes bad news on the Mac Mini front its dead forever Frown I could chuck another £200 at a used one, but looking at the Synology DS214se with 1 x 2TB WD Red drive thats DABS.com are doing for £203 - it will just soley hold my itunes library - will it be up to the job?

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

That seemed to be a bit low spec to me. What put me off (when I did a comparison on the synology site yesterday) was the 800MHz CPU and only 256MB of RAM. Seems like the bare minimum. Granted the one I bought today - DS213J - is only 500MB and single core 1.2GHz  but I stumped up the extra for it anyway. £159.99 for the DS213J and £74 x 2 for the WD 2TB drives. If you got the DS213J and only bought one drive like in the link that would be £233.99.

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

I've been living with a DS213J NAS for the last month or two. it's only used for music, stored on 2 x 4TB WD Red HDs. The NAS supplies a Devialet direct via USB and five Sonos zones via ethernet. I think the most we've had running at one time is five rooms of music, and all without a hitch.

TBH if there are going to be bottlenecks in the system (and there haven't been any yet), I don't think they'll be in the NAS.

:cheers:

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

Hi there,

I was wondering how you connect your SB to the Audio Station.

Can you help me out?

SB Servers works without any problem.

I have stopped the SB Server service and installed Audio stations, but no joy. I do not see the SB Classic in the DLNA client list.

Thanks!!!

hi,

you have to go to "Package Center " in the synology NAS and "Instal" "Logitech Media server" and "Media server" as well. Media server will run all your media contend, photos, movies and music to be able to be seen in DLNA list.

yes you can!

I got rid of mine SBT 1 year ago, just need to connect Synology NAS through a USB cable to a external DAC, select on the DS Audio "USB Speakers" and off you go.

RE: Synology Audio Station now supports Gapless Playback!

Hi everyone,

Can anyone confirm that DS Audio in ios7 definitely uses gapless playback when connected to an Airport Express?

The DS Audio app works incredibly well for me but I don't want to buy an Airport Express if it doesn't work because that would be my sole reason for buying it. 

Any advice greatly appreciated. 

Jason
