QNAP Music Station app

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 

Does anyone know if QNAP's Music Station app supports 24-bit/192khz and plays at full resolution, or if it downsamples the music?

 

And is it compatible with Apple Lossless 24/192?

 

I have a Qnap TS-251+ running the latest software

 

Thanks heaps in advance

Not sure about your specific questions, but FWIW I used the Music Station and Q Music apps with my Qnap NAS and didn't find them to be worth the trouble. I've had much more success and stability using other solutions like JRiver, Foobar, JRemote, Gizmo, PlugPlayer, and BubbleUPNP.

Thanks mate. I'll give the other solutions a shot

Agreed. Minimserver does its job perfectly on my Qnap NAS. I've also used BubbleUPNP Server which allows access to music on your NAS when not connected to your home network as long as you are using the BubbleUPNP as the player on your mobile device.

Try Illustrate (the maker of DBPowerAmp) Agent. It has a few tricks up its sleeve that MinimServer does not have, like support for ReplayGain.

Close (well begins with an 'A'), but not quite. The UPnP media server produced by Illustrate, developer Spoon, is called Asset UPnP:

Just to add: Asset UPnP R5 for QNAP just released.

 

By the way, I have been using both Asset UPnP (trial version only) and minimserver for my QNAP TS-469L, and so far I am very happy with both.
