Just setting up my new SHD Studio.  Looking at the best way to use Volumio.  I'm able to access the SHD Studio via a web browser on my desktop via the recommended link in the user manual (http://minidsp-shd/).  Is this the best way?  I ask because going to the Volumio website it looks like I can download the software direct from them (version 2.907), I assume that's a local installation vs using a browser, is this a better solution for using Volumio from my PC?

The Volumio installation is already in your SHD unit.  (That's what you're talking to at minidsp-shd.local.)
You can't use the normal Volumio revision (currently 2.907) because the SHD utilizes a dedicated (scaled down) version.

Thanks Dave - that was my suspicion but just wanted to be sure.  The normal Volumio looks a little slicker in the screen shots I saw.

One positive way the miniDSP specific build is different is that it includes Qobuz and Tidal integration without having to pay for a Volumio subscription. It also includes preset and input selection control although personally I prefer to use the remote control for this.

If you have an Android phone then Bubble upnp is an alternative control option to consider.

I have installed bubble upnp server on my NAS, using it as a proxy in front of the SHD Studio. This offers the possibility to not only use the bubble upnp app, but also lumin and linn. Streaming from NAS (minimserver) and qobuz most of the time. With the bubble upnp app from bandcamp sometimes.
