Hi All,
I used to have Squeezebox Touch with Synology NAS. I think its time to replace the setup as the SB development has been stopped quite some time back and Synology NAS is now not performing as expected, with newer software.

I need following features
1. Playing Files from USB hard disk attached to the device .
2. Network Service streaming Apple Play, Prime music, and support for HD streaming service such Tidal etc..
3. Airplay 2 and Bluetooth Aptx HD Support.
4. Good App to control the streamer on ios
5. Custom EQ - it would be great if there is an option to apply custom eq to individual tracks. have a large library with uneven sound quality and gain.

I have been searching and reading reviews and have sorted few options
Budget is 50-60K

Bluesound node 2i
Cambridge Audio CXN V2
Denon DNP-800NE
Audiolab 6000N Play

will connect this to Marantz PM7004 with Monitor Audio RX6 ( looking for another pair of bookshelves in the speaker section ).

Please share suggestion. would appreciate help.

Seems it ticks all the boxes at bit lesser cost

Thank You. Looks a good option. Sourcing of this would be an issue . Also the app and support is something which could be concern. There is limit of 1000 songs on usb too.

I have ordered directly from Arylic website ( in Mar ‘21 it took around 25-30 day’s to reach Mumbai ) & using it since last 15-20 days
App is super cool ( I use iOS devices )
1K songs limit can be a gamble ( Though not sure, I assume it might play few more, may be 10-15% Plus
Alternatively how about using DLNA ( though I am not very tech savvy in this)

1000 songs will be less.. i have around 2000+ songs and that count is supposed to increase

Have removed audiolab 6000 for lack of ability of playing from usb and less intuitive app

left with bluesound node 2i and denon 800 as they seems to be in same price range while CA would be more expensive

any more suggestion please ?

I have been using a Bluesound Node 2 for a few months now and I really like the BluOS user interface.
It’s very stable and easy to use. Spotify, Tidal, Amazon music, and a whole selection of streaming services work non this as also a large variety internet radio stations. The built in DAC is pretty good and it also has a digital out if you wish to add a standalone DAC to the chain (I did). The Bluesound Node 2i should be a step up.

Hi, thank you for your post, I just discovered this device and I had a couple of questions of the S50 as I am looking for a similar thing to pair a sub with my active speakers. Would be very helpful for me :)
1) Does it have a high pass filter on the RCA outputs once a subwoofer is connected ?
2) If you connect the subwoofer through the sub out and connect the speakers through the RCA out, does the volume control work on the sub-out too ? (Some desktop dac's dont vary the voltage via the sub-out so it can be an issue)
3) What additional taxes/customs duty did you have to pay (if any) ?

Yet to connect SW, as satisfied with the Bass from the Speakers ( using indiqaudio LCR’s)
Fortunately Customs/Taxes etc were just under INR 1K
