I'm considering using a raspberry pi as a music player using mpd. The setup would be the following :
* a NAS hosting the music encoded as flac
* the music would be accessed by the mpd client running on a Dreamplug over Ethernet or wifi (I'm not sure the bandwidth in a wifi setup would be enough for serving flac files)
* I wouldn't use the internal sound card but rather a DAC like this one (http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/UCA202.aspx) feeding a hifi amp. By the way, I know that this DAC works with Ubuntu but how could I make sure that it's working with the default Debian OS of the raspberry ?
Would the raspberry pi have enough power to decode the flac files ?
Thanks for your input.
