They are both available as plugins in FreeNAS, so installation was very easy.

However, to have good experience with Headphones one has to either 1) pay for the annual musicbrainz mirror from Headphones or 2) set up own musicbrainz server and keep it sync'd (quite tricky)

I've used Plex for years, but yes also dabbled into Emby recently. The apps doesn't look as polished (yet), what is its plus points for you?

(I paid for lifetime plexpass many years ago.)

PSU replaced an hour ago :P

It is headless. Everything I need can be done via IPMI and web interface.

Thanks, peoples, for the PSU tips! I didn't know much about it when this was built, so I just went with the PPP ratings (The Corsair CX750 got 4.6 stars).

After 2 months of 24/7 use, it is officially dead. (burnt) In Thailand, the PSU available are quite limited. I have looked for Seasonic but no shops had it so I went with the closest they have, a Cooler Master G750M. I'm going to have to order good parts from Overseas and replace again, but can't have the NAS offline for weeks waiting for that.
