Yes, my new music server is working flawlessly.
I insist that some days ago I was (and still am to a large extent) a Linux newbie and that the setup of this nice music server is possible to almost anyone (maybe not to my grandma though).
This blog contains my own experience of setting this server up with all the details you need to configure it.
You have to read it from bottom (the oldest post first) to top (till the most recent post).
All this would not have been possible (I admit) without the great help of nyc_paramedic who helped me a lot. All his suggestions and good hints are included in this blog.
I encourage everybody to try this out ! It's really worth it, because you will be listening to bit-perfect audiophile music for almost nothing (well, this depends mostly on the price of the USB DAC you chose).
