HOW TO PREPARE YOUR FREE 30-DAY TRIAL / INSTALLATION

Use Windows to prepare bootable USB flash drive

Download the Euphony 4.0 disk image by selecting this link.
Download Rufus app to create a bootable USB drive.
Use a 16 GB or larger USB flash drive. Insert it into your Windows computer.
Start Rufus. There are only two parameters to choose in Rufus to create a bootable Stylus 4.0 USB drive:

  1. Select your USB flash disk, you inserted into computer.
  2. Select the downloaded image (file like: “euphony 202xxxxxv4.img.gz”) and click OPEN.
  3. Press START and Rufus will start writing the image to your USB drive.
  4. Please note that all data on your USB drive will be deleted (forever).

After finishing with Rufus, your USB flash disk is ready to be inserted into your new music server. Before booting connect your new server to a local home network (LAN).

Plug in your USB flash disk into the USB port of your music server. Before powering on, make sure boot priority is set to boot from USB disk you prepared. Priority can be set by selecting F2 key immediately after you turn on your computer. This enables you to enter the bios settings (some computers may use other F keys to enter the boot only menu).
When you entered bios setting, find boot priority menu and select your newly created USB disk as the first boot device. After setting this, you need to restart computer. This will start Euphony Stylus from USB flash. 

After restarting, you do not need any more monitor and keyboard attached to your music server. This means form now on, you will control your new music server only via remote computer/tablet/smartphone connected to the same home network as your new Euphony music server / computer.

You can use a “web Internet browser” on remote computer to find Euphony WEB control interface.  To find it simply go to https://euphony-audio.com/v4/launch-stylus/.

Alternatively you can download our “Euphony Stylus”  IOS app or Android app to control the Stylus remotely. (In corresponding IOS and Android app. store seek for  “Euphony Stylus”). 

To continue using or installing Euphony Stylus to internal HDD you need to register your installation.

Register Euphony with your voucher code (received in the email) or enter “TRIAL” to start your 30-day trial period.

  4. Use Etcher to burn downloaded Euphony image on USB stick (min. 16GB). Newer versions of Etcher should also work with Euphony image file even if it remains in compressed form – ‘.img.gz’. Please remember to clear/format (old) USB sticks to be format MS-DOS (FAT32) so Etcher program can use it. Clearing can be done with OSX Disk utility.
  5. Insert the USB stick into your MAC (with INTEL CPU, M1 or new are not supproted) and power it on. (‘Legacy boot’ and ‘UEFI boot’ are both supported.) Hold OPT key when powering up MAC to access boot menu. USB stick will be shown as Windows disk. Choose it and wait until Euphony boots up.
