Audirvāna for LINUX and NAS (QNAP/Synology) officially released

The Linux and NAS versions of Audirvāna are now officially released.

Therefore, the Beta of the Linux and NAS version of Audirvāna is now over.

We thank everyone who tried this version; you have been trying it out a lot, given the 2000+ cumulated downloads of this beta!

We raised the price of the Audirvāna Origin license, which now includes Linux/NAS access and an extended update period.
If you own an Audirvāna Origin license, you can buy the Origin Upgrade from your account to keep using Audirvāna Origin on Linux/NAS. Please check our website for prices.

Audirvāna Studio’s price remains unchanged and includes access to the Linux/NAS version.

If you started a free trial of Audirvāna Studio or Audirvāna Origin after 13 May 2024, you can still use the Linux/NAS version until the end of your trial.

To install the latest Linux/NAS version of Audirvāna, please connect to your account.
The Audirvāna Core player on Linux is headless. This means Audirvāna Studio/Origin for Linux and NAS don’t have an interface.

You’ll need the latest version of the Remote App (v 5.0) to control it. All interactions are done through the remote app, except starting the app for the Linux version.

You can install the latest version of the Remote using the links below:

When you share an issue, please make sure to share the specifications of the device you installed Audirvāna.

Excellent. I’d been hoping for this for a long while.

Downloading now.


I installed Linux Mint on an old laptop ( 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) and Audirvana works using very few system resources, but I cannot find a method to add a network share so file-based playback only works for connected drives. I’m able to stream Qobuz.

I had hoped for something akin to Roon with a server + endpoints to stream. Perhaps this is the first step.

One way is to mount the network share on boot. (If you need directions on how to do that, they’re here: 20.04 - Auto Mount of a Network Drive - Ask Ubuntu .) Then I think you can add it to Audirvana.

Thanks, I’ll try that. I mounted the share which is on my NAS and contains my music but the remote just displays local directories and doesn’t show the share. I’ll try mounting it on boot.

Being able to run this on my Synology will be an absolute game changer for my setup! I will be watching closely for that release!!!


I concur re Synology!



what mode is actually used for buffer access MMAP mode or RAW mode?
I suspect that MMAP is used because I have a device using only RAW mode which doesn’t work with Audirvana Studio for Linux (I’m actaully using Fedora 39).
Another device accepting MMAP mode is working.
Could it be possible to have the choice between MMAP mode ans RAW mode in a future version?

An Audirvāna Core Player for Synology NAS would also be by far the most important innovation for me!!!


Good news!

Unfortunately I know nothing about Linux. I do have a NUC currently running ROON ROCK but would gladly switch it out for this. I may have to do research.

I’m also glad to see a QNap version is being released. I hope this means a Synology version is also on the radar?

Does this expose an API? I know Linux isn’t a large market share but one of the few things that has stopped me from removing myself off windows entirely is that Linux doesn’t have an app that integrates a local library and tidal.

Even a simple local web frontend for this would be sufficient for me.

This is a nice step in the right direction though!

The remote it seems is intended to take the place of something like a web frontend. What is it that you would be looking for from a frontend that the remote doesn’t make available to you?


I have a Sonicorbitor i9 that I use as a Roon Server w/an UltraRendu as my Roon endpoint. I still have a subscription to Audirvana. Is there a way to install this Linux Audirvana beta on my Sonicorbitor and use the UltraRendu as an endpoint. The email I received today from Audirvana implied it was possible, but have no idea how to do it! I am on the latest 2.9 OS on both the Sonicorbitor and the UltraRendu and use HQPlayer 5.5 w/Roon. Would be interesting to compare, but I am a Linux newbie and hence my “turnkey” sonicorbitor.

I’m testing on Ubuntu Studio Jammy. It’s a big event. First impression is very good, sound quality seems to be better than Windows or macOS.

I am unable to add my SSD, mounted at boot in Ubuntu 22.04, that holds my music files. The remote app simply does not see the folder or the files.

Where’s it mounted? Is it actually under the /mnt directory? That’s where mine is and it works. (I do the automount using the method described here: How To Automount File Systems on Linux - LinuxBabe ).

Testing on an old macbook late 2008, 4 Gb Ram, Linux Mint 21.3, Great sound… I’m surprised
