Setting up a Raspberry Pi 2 as my music server. First step: installing Debian, second: installing systemd. Then I will try a couple of different servers like for example http://musicpd.org because I want the convenience of Spotify but with my own music. Let us hope I can find some good looking clients for OS X, Linux and Android too ...

@sikkdays thanks for the links, they seem interesting. The cool thing with mpd is though that there are so many clients for it available.

@sikkdays I was running Plex on my iMac but it consumes so much electricity! Therefor my take with a RP.

@sikkdays I've been looking at subsonic too, the only thing I didn't like was their official player and it seemed to heavy for the RP.

@jeena Interesting. I use Subsonic, subsonic.org on an ancient iMac running Mint. Been thinking of replacing that monster with RPi

Where did you get it and how long did you have to wait? I'm guessing they've got their production lines running a bit more smoothly than the last time around?

Ok, I got everything set up but sadly the latency is sooo bad, from pressing play on the phone to actually hearing anything it takes 13 seconds … :( mpd isn’t what I was looking for obviously, I want to have something like Spotify which starts playing fast and than caches stuff inteligently. I don’t really want to play on the raspberry pi and then stream what is playing to my phone, I want just the file delivered to the phone as fast as possible and then cached there so I can start and stop playing fast.

@sikkdays so ok after hours of testing mpd had too much lag and DLNA doesn|t work over the Internet, I installed subsonic on the RP.
