Hi guys, My first post and glad to be part of the community. Been lurking here a while now. Some advice would be great. Currently I use a vortexbox appliance to serve music and also the vb mpd player connected via USB to my audiolab mdac. It's all good but I kind of feel that the server and player should be separate boxes based on the assumption that the less the player has to do the better for sound quality? so I was contemplating one of the following: 1) mini itx based player - Linux based using mpd 2) raspberry pi using volumio, but concerned by the USB/Ethernet shared bus 3) beaglebone black with volumio which gets around the rpi bus issue but I understand the clock cannot natively handle 44.1kbps since it works in multiples of 48kbps only Questions 1) am I wasting my time? Is my vb combined server/player going to be as good as separating the functions into different boxes? 2) is the bbb considered a better option than rpi? 3) most of my music collection is 44.1kbps (cd rips) so I expect that the bbb would upsample to 48k and thus present a non bit perfect stream? But if I'm outputting to an async USB dac, is this relevant? Thanks Edit Should have posted this under 'music servers'... Sorry

I consistantly get error(13) permission denied when I attempt to mount music files from my VortexBox. /etc/fstab file modification: //[url="file://\\192.168.0.105\storage\music\flac"]192.168.0.105/storage/music/flac[/url] /mnt/music cifs guest,_netdev 0 0 Attempts to mount using the command: mount -a result in the above error code. I need help to figure out how to mount the VortexBox files. Thanks to all in advance!
