Raspberry Pi 4 as a HiFi Music Server

I've bought Raspberry Pi 4 to use it as a DaaS (Desktop as a Service). I've needed a VPN server to securely connect to when I am traveling. I've needed a Cloud Server to replace Dropbox to have unlimited space. I've needed a NAS (Network-attached storage) to share files among my laptops and computers. I've also needed a Music Player Server to manage my music files and serve as a source for my amplifier. I've also needed a media player like Apple TV to play my movies, youtube etc.

Note: the sound quality was not satisfying for me.

In summary Raspberry Pi as:
1. Cloud server
2. VPN server
3. NAS
4. Music server (this post) (not recommended)
5. Media Player
