OS Options?

Is there a wiki/blog post explaining the OS options for RPi + HiFiBerry DAC+? I have heard of several, but don't know if they are still current and being maintained? Which are better for what tasks? etc.

I am really looking for the desirable OS to run my RPi + HiFiBerry DAC+ as a music player.

I want the ability to play from a library either from a local SD Card (the OS card or one plugged in via USB) when traveling (and may not have internet), or from NAS when home, or from Streaming services like Tidal when internet is available.

I would also like to be able to control the player on a phone/tablet via WiFi or bluetooth. Note that the RPi may not have internet available to it.

Is Volumio the best choice? PiCorePlayer? Max2Play (free? or is premium required)? Are there other options I should be considering?
