**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.

Near perfect

From what other reviewers are saying it sounds like unrealistic expectations, user error or bad audio files (that’s to be expected if you steal music online). I uploaded all my lossless ripped albums and iTunes purchases to my Synology and this app works perfectly. No problems with gaps, no album name issues, no problems at all so far. I do have one complaint and that is the lack of a EQ, but it’s not a deal breaker by any means.

Could be better.

I have been using this a lot more since Pandora is so ad crazy. Lately, it loses its place if stopped for more than a couple of minutes. And it doesn’t do a very good job of grouping songs into albums. Sometimes all but a couple are in one album and one or two are in another album with same photo and names. Shuffle and default favorites stop playing and I have to advance the song a few seconds to start it again.
