Euphony is headless system (no need for monitor or keyboard)

Euphony is a headless system and it is not controlled from screen and keyboard attached to Euphony computer! 

People are used to control computer devices directly - by keyboard and mouse and monitor attached to it. This is true for personal computers. However, for "server" systems this is often not the case. Servers are usually controlled remotely. Euphony computer is a kind of server system, which serves/streams music to your HiFi - and it is controlled from other devices - a kind of remote control. For Euphony computers - remote control is a different computer, usually your smartphone, tablet or another desktop computer.

If you connect the monitor and keyboard to the Euphony system you will see a "blank screen" or a screen with a message which tells you there is nothing to control from this screen.  

So how do you control your Euphony system?

You can control Euphony via your local network/WIFI using another computer, or your smartphone or tablet. For this to happen, you need to connect your Euphony computer to your home network (presumably to your internet router using an Ethernet cable).

So when you have your Euphony computer connected to a local network - you use another desktop computer and open an Internet browser in it (like Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox... etc.). You dial and type into its browser "http://euphony.local".  After that, your browser should display Euphony Web application by which you control playback, browse music and do everything else on Euphony computer. 

Instead of (or along with) browser you can also use Euphony native applications for iPhone and Android (just search for "Euphony" from HD-INFO).

You can also go to our special page at
