Thanks buzzinghive, I was hoping you'd comment, as you seem to have been down this road.

My NAS operates on Linux, but does support VMs so I think I might be able to set up emulators if required.

Ideally in my application I'd like to have something native (Linux) running on the NAS and then Android, iOS, and Windows clients to consume the data.

Wine is new to me. Yeah I have tried kodi, but it really suffered on large music libraries when running it on an android box looking at the storage hosted on my home desktop over LAN. I think it was equally bad via smb and upnp, but no doubt there's other ways including enhancing those.

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it, I'll take a few weeks to trial a few of the heavy hitters when I get my NAS spun up.

As I cross posted in another thread, the list I'm going to tackle is, in no particular order:

Audirvana
Musicbee
Plex
Qmusic
Foobar
Roon
Logitech
JRiver
