The DS209 comes with a ton of applications and many of them can be used at the same time. We will touch on a few of them in this article. If you need more details on each apps we suggest you travel over to Synology's homepage to see just what more the unit has to offer.
Synology offers a lot of applications for the digital media buff. One that we think would get a lot of usage would be the iTunes server app. You simply install iTunes on your PC and have it browse the network looking for the DS209.
If you have a DLNA compatible device either TV set of stereo system, the DS209 can stream audio and video directly to it. Even your PS3 and XBox360 can receive data straight from the DS209.
The last of the media apps we will talk about is the Audio Station. Now how you listen to your music is covered by the DS209. If you listen to a lot of internet music like I did through the server, a small web player will allow you to play audio files directly from the DS209.
