I am simply stunned.
If the majority of software music players available for PCs today could be viewed as a mountain range, I would call them the Rocky Mountains, and some are just foothills. But Strawberry is the Himalayas.
My personal experience (just anecdotal):
- Windows/foobar/external USB DAC (sounded really good with 96/24 material)
- Linux (ALSA)/Clementine (tweaked)/external USB DAC (sounded terrible, DAC indicated 44.1 samplerate always)
- Linux (ALSA)/Audacious/external USB DAC (sounded considerably better than foobar, I lived with this for some time)
- Linux (ALSA)/Strawberry/external USB DAC (blew away Audacious, nirvana)
Kudos. I would like to help.

Thanks for the positive feedback. As for helping, what are your skills? We can use help with both development, documentation and possible a new web site. GitHub sponsorship or donations are very much appreciated.
Which flavour of Linux are you using?
I tried Ubuntu Studio, but it seems not to be that compatible with Strawberry
I've found that Linux OS is always faster than Windows or Mac. However, running Strawberry makes operations slow down
For instance the Update when the program is started takes 30-40 mins
