Tonight I am evaluating a new music server I built. I have a new OS and new hardware with updated streaming application. There has been a little up and down with the music stream as I get everything configured but it’s looking very good!

I will end up having the equal amount of streams on Icecast as I have had for years on Shoutcast with identical bit rates.

This new setup will allow me to also use my NAS setup to manage my music better. There will be less buffering for listeners even with the amount of encoders I have running more than doubling the system is handling this increase with very little memory or CPU impact.

Stay tuned the backend is changing dramatically and I like to have that solid before making the website changes that will better reveal my backend updates for you to use.
