I don't trust my ears, I would trust the sourcecode only, but I'm not a coding nerd. ;)
The advantage of Squeezebox vs. mpd is IMHO the better handling of more than one device.

To me the squeezelite sounds better on Volumio as compared to Squeezelite on Pogo plug .
MPD vs squeezeite - its a toss up - cant really make my mind. :?

out of interest, if both players are chucking bits at the DAC, what would make them sound different?

MPD seems to sound a LITTLE louder therefore many would think it sounds a little "clearer" and has better quality! I have been doing some blind listening and I have to say I cannot tell any difference in quality (apart from very slight volume difference).

There are a number of other things I also prefer in Squuezelite :D But I guess its good have numerous playback options.

For starters, the power supply. Also, vortex box runs Fedora 20 - not sure if that some color to the sound.

Thx for this great tip Dakku, finaly got the time to experiment some more and got everything working ok. I must admit squeezebox sounds sublime verry difficult to say better than Volumio but surly as good. now i can use both systems and there is another xtra i noticed that when i use airplay and squeezebox at once shiarport doenst chrash so this is a big plus at parties where everyboddy is trying to play a mix of airplay (youtube mostly) and my home database

Love it tnx Jesse

So I got this installed but now on Volumio the sound is distorted.

When I try to play squeezelite I am not getting any sound from my setup but see it playing through the web and on my phone.

I am using a raspPi with a HiFimeDIY Sabre U2 Asynchronous USB DAC which works fine with just Volumio.
