This post is almost exactly 3 years after my first post in this thread.

USB 3 issues with the music server hard drive array have been resolved by changing a BIOS setting on the server.  Backup is now incremental which makes the process incredibly easy and quick.

Hey, thanks for picking up Strands V - hope you enjoyed listening to it.

I was wondering how do you manage to listen to all this music?

Logitech has stopped making players for the Squeezebox system so a group of tech-savvy users have released the plans for the piCoplayer made from Raspberry Pi boards, a flash storage card, a wi-fi dongle, USB DAC, case (acrylic, wood, lucite) and amplified speakers or hi-fi.  I just put together 3 players:



You can pay top dollar for Sonos and get a system with a lot less flexibility than the Squeezebox open-source system.  Notably the Sonos file system is limited to 65,000 music files.

Or you can put together or buy some piCoplayers for the cost of a few parts and your labor.

If anyone is interested in this system or players, let me know at ambientmusic(at)gmail.com

Here's a couple more players (that's real wood inlay in the top one):



All you need for a full Squeezebox music server setup:

1.  Server computer with the media server software cataloging and serving up your music files (Mac, Win, Linux)
2.  One or more players consisting of the following: player unit, micro USB power brick, amplified speakers or connection to your hi-fi system.  Also any computer can be a player with the Squeezeplay app installed
3.  A DAC which can be obtained from many difference sources ranging in price from $30 to $10,000 depending on how good you think your ears are and whether or not you believe in ionized selenium covered audio cables.
4.  Cell phone or tablet with the iOS or Android Squeezebox app of your choice to control your system.  Also any computer in your house can control all the players.

Or, of course, you can pay 5-10 times more for a Sonos system that has less flexibility.
