JPLAY FEMTO is fantastic

Perhaps, but it's Mr. O's terrific software, and its hard to imagine anyone else understanding how best to talk to it.  I think it would be in the interests of all CA folks to understand the different ways of coupling the arguably the worlds best library management with the worlds best (windows- based) player!

 

Agree,

maybe Marcin was hired by Taiko Audio to do some extra work and is not allowed  to disclose it?

Possible, yes of course . . . but then Mr. O can simply advise that he is subject to non-disclosure . . .  end of discussion . . . so for the sake of all us CA folks, lets' hope that's not the case . . . certainly not in his best business interests!!  

 

BTW, I don't understand why you are so obstructive - are you Mr. O's lawyer!!??  I thought the purpose of these forums was to enlighten and benefit CA folks??

Marcin,

After offering this link, you proceed to trash the SQ of this combination in comparison with using Femtoserver.  One of the best (most expensive?) servers on the planet - the SGM Extreme, uses Roon for library management and control and Jplay for playback as their preferred, default playback.  Their machine is aimed at NOS DACs.  They don't mention use of a plug-in (e.g., Squeeze2Unpn) to achieve compatibility between Roon and Jplay.  Please tell us what they are doing differently to achieve what, in their opinion, is the best sound to go with the best library managment?  Thanks!

Kind Regards,
Rick

 

Hi Rick, 

 

As far as I know, the only way to combine JPLAY FEMTO with Roon is via squeezelite plugin. 

It is possible to use JPLAY via ASIO in Roon as well, but this is JPLAY Classic, not JPLAY FEMTO.

Marcin

Being the microRendu family has squeezlite as an output option, is it possible for Femto + Roon (on server) to stream to a mU with squeezlite enable on mU?

Hi Marcin,

Thanks for the response. .  That approach - Jplay  Classic via ASIO in Roon is what TakeoAudio does in their Extreme.  In your opinion, does that provide better SQ than Jplay FEMTO with Squeezelite?  Thanks!

Hi Rick, 

 

I think  it  does as it doesn't involve 3rd party software (squeezelite), so  there is less processing.

I saw a post in the JPLAY forum about being "torn between Windows and Linux." He said he spent more time tweaking Windows than listening to his system.  I wouldn't say I'm "torn", but I have similar thoughts.  I work with Windows as a developer on a daily basis, and do not relish the thought of using it once again for my audio system: the dependency on hacky optimization products, the stubborn bloatware (unless you license a server edition), the forced updates (unless you have the elusive LTSB), the inordinate number of services/background tasks, and the frequent thrashing of the OS "drive" (I use Optane memory thanks to advice of some on this site).

 

Perhaps Marcin would consider a Linux edition.

Sorry if this has been answered (I couldn't find it) but can jplay be used with Roon and a Sonore endpoint such as an ultraRendu?

From my memory, yes. With help of Sonore's UPnP app. It is based on the UPnP/DLNa-bridge plugin for LMS. I had the microRendu and it worked rock stable. Please have a look at the manual 'How to use JPLAY FEMTO with Roon?'. You don't need to do the first four steps just activate the LMS support in Roon and activate the UPnP app on your Sonore endpoint.


Euphony (Roon/HQPlayer, Stylus) --> "magic" NUC7CJYH (Euphony-ramroot/NAA, StylusEP) / pi3B+/HifiBerry Digi + Pro (GentooPlayer-ramroot/RoonBridge) --> Matrix Audio X-Sabre Pro (MQA) --> B & M Prime 6

bedroom: pi3/DigiOne (RoPieee) --> S.M.S.L M500 --> KRK Rokit 5 or AKG 712 Pro

JPLAY can not play to external network renderers.
