UPnP/DLNA renderer under linux that does gapless and dad


Recommended Posts

** EDIT: my computer corrected DSD to DAD in the title, sorry :)

 

Hi,

 

The title says it all :)

I will use

- MinimServer on my Synology NAS as a server.

- any tablet/phone as a controller.

 

Connected to my Mytek DSD DAC, I have a small headless Linux box.

I will probably use Debian on it because I know the distribution quite well.

 

Can anyone recommend an audiophile renderer that can play files gapless and knows how to read DSD files ?

 

I mainly listen to classic music.

 

I seems none of the following software does both:

UPnP-MPD, CLIMediaRenderer, GMRender-Resurect, Mopidy + Rygel, Coherence, Serviio

 

 

Thanks a lot

You do realize for Linux you need the unofficial Linux driver for the Mytek?

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Thanks all for your help.

I listen to classical music. Therefore I use a lot of tags so I need to be able to select by tags from the controller. It appears that only minim server allows this. Hence why I want a UPnP renderer.

But I'm open to any solution you can think of as long as:

- gapless

- reads DSD to the Mytek

- allows me to browse by tags.

 

I tried JRiver but the software on smartphones is not customizable enough (inability to customize the tags displayed in the playing now screen)

 

Ideally I'd like to be presented a list of tags I can filter with. THen When I choose one, I am presented by a second list and so on.

I would click on "Composer" then "Bach" then "Solist" then "Glenn Gould" then "Type" then "Concerto" then "The Well Tempered Keyboard" then "play".

I see. I use mpd on a dedicated fanless computer, which supports bit-perfect gapless playback of PCM and DSD files from your local network.

 

On the client/usability side things are a bit more complicated. While the default smartphone mpd client apps won't let you use tags or metadata like composer, there are native (Linux, Mac and Windows) clients (like gmpc) that do support such features. Such a client could be run on devices like (the "screen portion" of a convertable) laptop or a (rooted) tablet.

 

Good luck,

Ronald
