I have installed the server running on my synology. But I am wondering what I shall do next. What is the best way to listen to the music. Via a adapter on a stereo or a purpose built speaker?? Any help would be good

An easy and free first step is to install SqueezePlay or Squeezelite on your desktop and laptop PCs. Also invest in the appropriate controller/player app for your smartphone.

If you want playback on your hifi system, consider a $65 Raspberry Pi-based player: parts list (http://i.imgur.com/ulaUCbX.jpg).

Never were. You may find a Squeezebox Radio on eBay.

or find a Squeezebox TOUCH on ebay and connect a couple of self powered speakers to it. (something like audioengine A2s or A5s.)
