I know a lot of people in the media player world also own sonos systems and squeeze boxes. The topic is if an all in one box can also be a decent music streamer. You can also create playlists from this mode. Anyhow I agree: something to keep an eye on! I use Foobar2000 and I can easily convert track albums in single file. There are some other ones that do better i. . It also means that you need to rebuild that index whenever you add, remove or change anything.
That said I'd check with aasoror here or on the Pivos forums about running headless just to be safe. Some of them can access directly a network directory e. You can hierarchically combine selections on Album, Artist, Genre, Date, decade, and, very useful folder. It's quite possible someone has gone down this route before, so it would be worthwhile researching this topic further as there could well be recommended replacement power supplies available for the streamers you are thinking of using. But it might be worth checking out the Zappiti player. I believe most people who just want to select and play music via their stereo amplifier or av receiver don't want the hassle of having to switch the tv on and using the mediaplayer's remote to navigate on it with.
I am particularly discouraged that Zappiti media software does not support music jukebox capability, for its Dune predecessors. But I doubt that any fixes will be rolled back into the older Dunes.

But I find this useless, since you need to use the remote to access particular tracks after starting the album file, and you can't add individual tracks to playlists.
I just tried playing a Flac file from start up and there was no problem with my D1. I have read quite noisy. Then, there is the problem that jukeboxes for the Dune are built from a static folder structure. Anyhow it looks that also the pure media streamer path might give some surprises when inter-working with network attached devices.

This means starting from a whole file and having visibility of track that from a streaming look less difficult than making separate tracks as continuous.
Only a matter of time I can batch during the night and disk space if you don't erase the original tracks. Dune might be well positioned. Playlists can only contain entire albums with this approach. That is why the search choices are so limited. It misses Composer as selection key This shows the scarce attention to classical music fans. Also gapless is supported by all these devices admittedly following several firmware updates, for some , if you use the remote control or the control app made for the device to select and play music.

So if the server has been configured with musical categories of album, artist, genre, etc and some playlists - even may be exposing a network shared folder as well, then the music streamer will display exactly that hierarchy structure.

To report that a promise of improvement is present in the French manual. If you are looking for music and are willing to spend the money get a cocktail or something. It also has rudimentary gapless capability, although it's a little buggy the Dune has absolutely no gapless capability.
