Install Headphones on Arch Linux

Headphones and Arch Linux logo

Headphones is an automatic music downloader and manager. It is equivalent to CouchPotato or Sonarr but for music. For improved security it is installed under it’s own user and group. Backing up settings and the library is very simple and only requires a database and configuration files to be saved. The one major weakness of Headphones is that it uses MusicBrainz public mirror by default. The MusicBrainz public mirror is slow and unrelaible. This problem can be solved by using alternative server, either free or paid or running your own my setting up MusicBrainz VM Server with QEMU.
