Happy Christmas! This month’s roundup of self-stored music library news includes Synology DSM and Volumio updates, pointless influencer zaniness and library management in streaming services.
DSM 7.1 feature list
Synology have announced new features in the upcoming new version of the operating system for their NAS devices, DSM.
Of the many things covered at @Synology 2022 & Beyond event, one that I don't think has got anywhere near the attention it should have was details on DSM 7.1.

Influencer does zany thing for clicks
Turns out it is possible to spend $5,000 on a rPi NAS. How insightful.

Library management in streaming services
The fact is that most of the big-tech players are incentivised not to make it easy to manage self-stored/owned music libraries within their services. They’d much rather you rent instead. For those that want to store-your-own, I know a service that does that.
My latest blog post is about library management in music streaming services!https://t.co/LR76EdFNil— Erdal (@ErdaIToprak) December 1, 2021
