Bought on an whim - totally stokedReview by KPRIZZLE
I'm not even sure how I stumbled upon M2P. I'm stoked that I did because it's freaking awesome. Great to see that the license is inexpensive because I probably wouldn't have bought on a whim if it wasn't. Looking forward to the ODROID C2 image. (Posted on 24/03/2017)
Brilliant! Keep the innovative plug ins coming!Review by Hornemountain
I've got nothing but praise for this OS. My house is running multizone hifiberry Amp+ sound. I also run a raspberry Pi 3 as in-car entertainment system using 1tb drive, miniDLNA plug in and access point plug in. Couldn't have done it without Max2play! Worth more than the licensing fee. (Posted on 21/03/2017)
Simply the best. Waw!Review by DreeCor
Perfect OS- image for Raspberry en Hifiberry,
Easy to install and to configure from a browser. As everybody here above already said.

Thanks for this package! Dree (Posted on 08/03/2017)
Excellent!Review by victor75
Very nice interface, the soft / os works great! A lot of possibilities for different purpoises.
I'm very happy to use M2P on my RaspPi with DIGI DAC+ Light. I use it for a multiroom service (squeezeplayer) connected to DAPHILE (squeezeserver and player -nuc intel) and DAC FOSTEX HPA8. The sound on my secondary speakers is nice! the synchro works great! Well done guys! (Posted on 27/02/2017)
Tip top :)Review by Peterpan69007
Allez, en Français au cas ou!
Très bonne surcouche Linux pour RPI ...
Pas vu de bug, la possibilité d'ajouter des plugins vaut bien le coût de la licence...
Non, vraiment top ! :) (Posted on 21/02/2017)
ExellentReview by SteinK
I use the m2p distribution on an Rasperry pi 3 with hifiberry card and running it as an Lms server + and a stand alone player connected to a hifi receiver. Work great in both ways. It is also a Squeezebox radio an a Squeezwbox Duet in the system connected to another Hifi amplifier. So far there as not been a problem whith setup. Installing it was a breeze. I plan to make a new kitchen radio out of a Rasperry pi 3 and a Hifiberry amp connected to a 7" touch display built into the wall an with in-ceiling speakers. It will all run on an M2P distribution. Thanks a lot for the great dutribution. (Posted on 16/02/2017)
An excellent, easily installed, configured, and managed distributionReview by GuyS
I'm happy to recommend to anyone your excellent product. I did have to reinstall to redo the "grow filesystem" to work correctly (it got 'stuck' and would not grow to the complete size of the SD card; but a reinstall did the trick and all is good now).

I'm especially pleased that right now I can use it as a media server, but if in the future my Squeezebox hardware fails (they are getting old) I can unplug the RCA cables from the SqBox an into the HiFiBerry RCA outputs, activate SqueezePlay, and loose practically no time in listening to my very extensive collection (45,000+ tracks).

Highly recommended. (Posted on 11/02/2017)
GREAT PACKAGE!!Review by vandura
Max2play is definetly Value for money. One of the best OS for raspberry pi.

Keep It up guys. (Posted on 09/02/2017)
Excellent. UnbeatableReview by Nickgosling
Your software is ace. I had some squeezebox radios and using your software has given them a new lease of life. I am now considering replacing the insides of an old wooden bush radio and putting inside one of your products to make it work as a multiform player but look retro.

I still think the squeezebox platform is unbeatable. With your solutions it's excellent. I use it everyday.

Thanks. (Posted on 10/01/2017)
Makes installation & maintenance a breezeReview by Tex
Long time Squeezebox user and was interested in using a Raspberry Pi as player & server for LMS but didn't want the hassle of installation and maintenance. With this Operating system it is a breeze and if there are problems I notice great customer service, from their blog & the Squeezebox forum. (Posted on 08/01/2017)
Definitely a winnerReview by Tex
I have been a Squeezebox fan for about eight years. And part of the problem has been the installation & maintenance of LMS. So I have followed with interest using the Raspberry Pi as a server. I just didn't want to go through the installation and maintenance, until I discovered Max2Play. It made everything a breeze.
One thing I have learned about LMS is to keep it simple and you have less problems but these guys are supporting their product. I am hoping they keep up their development & LMS continues to be supported as well as it has been.
I am very happy with Max2Play and the HifiBerry hardware their new Digi + Pro sounds great. (Posted on 07/01/2017)
ExcellentReview by NotLogitech
I was looking for a replacement for my Logitech Squeezebox which failed recently. Found this excellent solution of Hifiberry / Max2play. Very easy to assemble and configure, excellent results, total configuration works very well. Would have put 5 stars - but still working on a license activation problem. Hope it will be fixed soon !

HifiBerry + Max2Play FTW!Review by Daren
I finally got my HifiBerry setup last night and added my music library and TuneIn radio. I love it. I can't wait to put together a handful of these in my house and connect them to my whole home amplifier. Having unique music in each room that's controllable by a handheld is something that costs thousands of dollars to install in a home. Control4 can only handle 2 zones per $1000 Controller!. I can put together 6 zones for less than $600. It's ridiculous. (Posted on 06/01/2017)
M2P on RBP3 is central headquarters in my music systemReview by Peter
I have M2P on RBP3. Relatively easy installation. I use M2P as the operating software for the LMS. All works fine, wich is a little marvel when you consider: LMS connects my ethernet NAS with Squeezebox Boom (wifi), Squeezebox Touch (ethernet), SqueezePlay on Windows 10 (ethernet) and a battery driven loudspeaker (bluetooth). As the bluetooth signal from RBP3 is too weak to cover my home, i use now an iPhone with the app IPeng 9 as a musicplayer (wifi) and relay the signal in bluetooth to the bluetooth speaker.
Some critisism though: the webinterface of M2P is awkward, and a when you dismount (delete) a mounted share/drive it disappears from M2P as expected, but stays in the Linux os and still shows up in LMS and IPeng. (Posted on 04/01/2017)
Better technical support requiredReview by Airheader911
The product seems almost great however technical support is lacking which results in a very frustrating purchase for those not highly knwledgeable in networking. The software works great except for mounting network storage shares in my experience which severely limits the usage as a slimserver unless you have local usb storage drives attached. I suspect the problem in minor and could be resolved with some input from the technical support however there has been no response to my requests for assistance both in the contact email and the forum.

Answer from Max2Play:
Thanks for your feedback, Airheader911!
Unfortunately, our offices were empty during the Holidays until New Years and we are still working on previous technical requests. However, we are chronologically answering every query and topic on technical issues in our forums and I am sure we will have gotten to yours as well by now. Thanks for letting us know.

Bluetooth problemsReview by TheRealBigEasy
I bought the license specifically for the Bluetooth support as I want to play music to my ue roll speaker. Tried every possible combination of options but can't get sound to the Bluetooth speaker. Keep getting an error unable to set volume.
Real pity as every thing works great through my HiFiBerry and loudspeakers but not Bluetooth. Seems I have wasted my money

Answer from Max2Play: Hi TheRealBigEasy, if you have problems setting up the bluetooth feature please have a look at our video tutorial: If you have any problems, you could always use our forum: tell us your problem and we will help you. (Posted on 16/12/2016)

Good app, limited supportReview by Popper73
The SW is great and very good integrated. I puchased the license and tried for a few weeks.
Unfortunately does not support my set up and this results in crackling an the beginning of hi resolution files (96KHz / 24bits) and then stops after a few seconds. I had to uninstall it

See details:

Answer from Max2Play: Thanks Popper73 for your support. We have been working on a audiophonics solution - check the updates in our forum. We will add the cards to our shop too. (Posted on 07/12/2016)
