Hi guys

I am considering getting a Squeezebox and a Synology NAS. Do any of you have experience with running these two together?

Search the forums for "SSODS" (SlimServer on Diskstation). Community
member flipflip has done a great job building drop-in package for the
diskstation which makes slimserver installation very easy.

Right. Check the README.txt on my homepage (see link in the signature below).

I recommend a DS-106 (or a DS-106x if you are in Switzerland) or a CS-406(e). The more memory the DS has, the smoother things will run. The DS-106 with 64 MB is fine. The CS-406 with 128 MB and a faster CPU is great but also rather expensive. I would not recommend a DS-101j because it has only 32 MB and has another type of CPU (Intel XScale, ARM compatible) which won't be supported in the upcoming release of SSODS (which will support Slimserver 6.5). The DS-106e is like the DS-106 with less memory and some software features disabled. The DS-106j looks like it has a slower CPU (200 MHz).


A lot has been written about these things here, as Michael pointed out. Still, feel free to ask further questions if things are unclear to you.
