I’ve been using my S30 with an RME ADO-2 DAC via USB happily since early in the New Year.
My problem arises with “upgrading” to AMSv4.0. I went ahead and did it - even though I really should know better than to use a .0 release - and now I have two problems. No sound via USB (which I address in Upgrading to AMSv4.0: no more sound - #20 by dgrb); and an inability to point the S30 at my Logitech Music Server, which is running on another box.
I can’t run LSM on the S30 because my music is on a Synology NAS; if there was a possibility of the S30 connecting via NFS I could do that, but that option doesn’t seem available.
Under version 3.whatever (12) you could supply the address of the music server, although not in my experience 100% reliably, even though the interface said it was not necessary for most users.
Well it was for me because although LMS will run on the Synology box, they no longer support it (thanks Synology) and updating PERL will break it. More to the point, it’s stuck on version 6.something, which doesn’t support DSD files. Hence running another LSM on my debian server box.
This worked fine even though the path to the music was less direct than optimal: to the LMS server, which used NFS to access the music on the Synology, I never had any issues with network speed, even at 24-192 or DSD256.
But now the only way I can use the S30 is by pointing my web browser at the LMS and telling it to take control of the S30. I think, in all my cruising around the new interface, I did find a way of specifying another LMS than the one on the S30, but I can’t find that again and, indeed, find the new interface confusing at the very least and not well documented.
Everytime I restart the squeeze player (I presume it is still using Squeezelite, although that term appears nowhere in the new interface) or the S30 itself, it insists on connecting to LMS running on the S30.
So: two questions really: how do I point the S30 at my LMS? And can I stop LMS running on the S30 locally, given that I neither want nor need it?
The only option given on the Player Dashboard is to restart, which doesn’t help.
All assistance gratefully received.
