The DFF specification doesn't support tagging. For tagging, you need to use DSF instead of DFF.

It would mean to extract over 500 albums again from ISO to DSF instead of DFF. Horrible! Couldn’t you advise me easier way? I thought fooBar or jRiver could add tags from web couldn’t it?

The dff2dsf utility converts DFF files to DSF. I don't think it adds tags. See this page for a download link.

MinimServer isn't a tagging program, so it can't add tags to your files. If foobar or JRiver can add tags from the web, you could do this and then use the tagged files with MinimServer.

The other option is to use foobar or JRiver as your server instead of MinimServer.

Thanks for your help, Simon. For all I know fooBar and jRived cannot be implemented into the Synology NAS so far and I don’t want to run my music server from PC. I’ll try dff2dsf utility recommended if it goes really without any quality deterioration.

There shouldn't be any difference in the audio data. However, some people have experienced clicks, pops or static noise between tracks when playing DSF files. I suggest you start with a couple of albums and play them to see whether you are affected by this issue. If you do experience it, you might be able to solve it by adding the dsf:dopwav transcoding setting.
