Why would a Raspberry Pi sound BAD as running LMS but sound GOOD as a player?
If anything, one would think it the other way round?
But yes, we do look to be heading in the general direction of a NAS with LMS running on the NAS and be done with it.
Rip CDs to the NAS from any room in the house with a computer? Works for me. NAS drive in the garage next to the router?
OK by me.
"Why would a Raspberry Pi sound BAD as running LMS but sound GOOD as a player?"
What I said was that some Audiophiles would say that the RPi would not sound as good running LMS AND a Player - In other words the preferred method would be to run LMS from a different Computer than the Player.
And understand that I have no idea, as I have never tried it....
One Pi running LMS somewhere in the house attached to the network and a second with HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro running as a player. Mostly used for streaming TIDAL and QOBUZ so who cares is the computer with the music on the hard drive is even up and running.
Wife likes to turn things off, not standby, OFF.
It's technically possible, but I've never tried it. I have always had LMS running on my Desktop System, which always stays on for other duties.
