**You must own a Synology NAS to run this app, and be running the Audio Station 6.5.0 package to get the complete set of features**

DS audio allows you to stream music stored on your DiskStation with an iPhone/iPad wherever an Internet connection is available. Better yet, with the offline mode you can listen to songs stored in the device’s local memory for when no network connection is available. You can browse music by albums, artists, folders or genres, create your own playlists or share them with your friends, and even rate your music! And if you have dedicated stereo speakers at home, DS audio can also become a remote control to stream music to them.

Use it every day


If Synology invested time and resources to develop DS Audio, their NAS would be a must-have for music lovers. I’ve been using the app every day and it already is extremely usable. Well, until few days ago. Now the app doesn’t allow changing the “player” setting and actually freezes when opening that setting, at least on iPad - this makes it unusable to me.

I use the app as a control point for my home hifi when at home, and to listen via headphones when out. Without being able to switch the player setting from USB Speakers to headphones and vice versatility, the app is useless for me. Everything used to work for many years until now.

DS Audio has so much promise.

Love synology, kinda love this app


Great to have a free app for my synoAudio. Thanks for that. I use this app quite a bit. Almost daily. Problem for me is takes too long to log in, sometimes I tell it to repeat a song but it skips to next. Also, I get the whole color theme thing for the other synoApps but the color choice for this one is not so great from a design perspective.

Other than that, it a must have for synology and will keep on using either way.

Gapless playback not working


Gapless playback was not working for me last fall. They fixed it, but soon it stopped working again, probably after an iOS update. Synology support gave no ETA for the fix. Also, the app lacks alphabetical tabs for navigating playlists, even though it has them for Categories. Lame. I can’t recommend Synology and will be looking at other brands when it comes time to replace my NAS.
