Lo streaming di FLAC funziona anche con DSM 3.2: testato su USB Station 2.

Awesome! Paired it with my Synology DS409+ NAS and now have a personal "cloud" music streaming solution right out of the box.

After upgrading to DSM 3 final version, no longer works on my Incredible - it can't find the Diskstation on the network. Works just fine on an iPod Touch.

Makes the case for NAS Seems like every week we are shown the danger of centralized data housing. This week dropbox (again), last week chase and other financials. I bought a synology NAS because there was some data I did not trust to the cloud. There is no trustworthy, secure and private cloud provider. (Thanks Google, for giving me the choice to either not review this product or review it and attach my real name. Impossible that I might prefer to review under a pseudonym.) So I brought the NAS home for utilitarian reasons. Who knew it would do such entertaining things. Do you think compressed audio sounds worse on nice gear? Do you want to be able to listen when your Internet is down? Do you want to own your collection rather than have a license subject to future TOS revisions? Buy a synology NAS. Their supporting apps, like this one for audio, are really good!

Was great What I liked about the old app was the way that albums were displayed on the left and tracks of the selected album on the right, very user friendly but unless there is a setting I haven't found the tracks have disappeared and an album has to be opened to view the tracks which is a pain. Also the volume has stopped working as somebody else has pointed out and at least the letters of the alphabet would be good when scrolling through a large number of tracks

Updated version of DS Audio crashes on startup! I can no longer stream music to my galaxy tablet (GT-N8013)

New look is OK, and I can now manage my full list, but: App now automatically starts playing what's on the queue when it connects and disconnects from a Bluetooth source, even when already closed down and logged out. What the heck is wrong with it?!

App Won't Exit I'm always having to force-stop the app. No exit button. Music apps should allow clean exit.
