All of my music lives in a FreeNAS box running Plex.  I have found that PlexAmp works really well to play music.  Otherwise, I use the Plex app to play video.

I've always wanted to setup something like this but never have gotten around to learning what I need to do. I mainly just want a place to have MP3s/FLACs of my recordings and other music that I can "host" here on my home network that could then be accessed elsewhere by myself and others.

but basically, following something like this: https://www.devroom.io/2020/02/28/building-a-diy-home-server-with-freenas/ would be a good place to start, huh?

i run plex as well but i dont use it as much as i used to. For music ive been digging my sysnology NAS and raspberry pi running volumio. I run usb > DAC > Stereo. the raspberry pi runs the server and acts as the front end. I sometimes get drops on 24/192 material but im using it over wifi in an out building in my yard. never an issue with lesser bit rates.

I used to run logitech squeeze touch. the pi solution is more along those lines. Mine is just a dumb head but you can add screens etc and they can do a lot more than just tunes. volumio supports multiple devices if you have more than one pi etc. Im not married to volumio, it was just one of the first i tried. the pi is nice that the build runs on a micro sd card so you can swap out cards if you want to test other builds without much hassle.

Yes, that looks like a good link.  PM if you need some guidance

I have been trying nota, 
Haven't tried vlc but I might as well. Was not happy with foobar at all.
 it really just boggles me how difficult it seems to do this compared to using an android. the fun of changing...

Maybe a dumb question, but why not convert FLAC to ALAC and playback in the Music app?  I've been playing with the idea of converting FLACs to ALAC and playing the files on a iPod 5.5G ( with 512gb drive ) in the native OS vs Rockbox.  I've had Rockbox choke on files and mess up my library to the point I have to recover the iPod and start over again.  So, I thought about using my iPhone ( 14 Pro ) with ALAC files in the music app and so far they seem to play, but are they playing at 24bit 48ghz, or truncated to 16bit?  How would I know? 
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

As I posted a while ago up there^, I do this. The drawback is if you "collect" FLAC folders, now it's one more copy.
At modern hard drive prices of ~$16/TB on sale, I don't find that a big problem anymore.

I use XLD and converted a folder with FLACs and had the ALACs put back in the same folder.  Told iTunes to add to library and chose the folder with both FLACs and ALACs and only the ALACs were added as it should be.  Added those files to my iPhone an iPod and both show 24bit 48ghz in iTunes.  Both devices playback fine.

Agree that XLD will make this really easy, due to its friendly ability to recursively dive into folders and replace items right where they are stored.
I'd suggest making a copy of the flac directory and converting the whole thing into ALAC, so you have separate folder in case they outgrow the drive some day.

Plexamp is awesome. Had Plex for 10ish years, never used it for music. Found Plexamp a year ago, what a game changer. Works with everything. Can play in the house or our.
