It would be nice to have ssh available. However I do like it a lot!!! Having access to my Tidal account is truly what knocks it out of the park.....Great software!

Daphile is easy to use even for the novice, it's stable, it works flawlessly and the sound it produces is magical especially for high-def and DSD recordings. I run it on an ITX mini computer with 4GB memory which I keep running 24x7; I have a 2 terabyte external drive attached to it with the music files. I also use Pandora and Spotify via Daphile plugins. I have an external cd/dvd attached which I use for ripping CDs. I use the built in CD ripper and the built in backup function to backup music to a NAS (I could have set Daphile up to read the music directly from the NAS but I like having the music files directly attached to the mini-PC instead of going over a network). I use my laptop PC and/or tablet or phone (using Orange Squeeze) as my interface with Daphile. I take the USB output from the Daphile mini- ITX and run it thought a Benchmark DAC for my main stereo. Sweet! I also can play music through a Squeezebox radio or Boom. I have used Daphile since it's beginnings coming to it after Logitech dropped support for Squeezebox and since I have never even thought of going to something else like Sonos. I'm not sure I understand the reviewers issues. For me Daphile just works and performs beautifully with no fuss. Bravo to the developer Kimmo!
