What is a good Upnp/DLNA software to use with a Synology NAS  streaming through Ultrarendu.
Also having a user friendly iPhone App to manage the playback.

Run Synology’s DLNA server and use mConnect on your mobile device to control it.

Mconnect is compatible with UltraRendu?

From a sound quality perspective, I am preferring Linn Kazoo to Roon (using "Roon Ready" mode).

What way can I setup Linn Kazoo or Lumin App for that matter.

... in order to have MinimServer working at full functionality install MinimServer on you nas and Minimwatch on any computer on the same network

Minimwatch is needed to configure MinimServer

I use Lumïn app as control point and from the attached screenshot you can have an idea of MinimServer  potential ....

Install Minimserver on the synology nas, install minimwatch on a computer and LUMIN App on the iPhone. What else do I need to use UltraRendu as the music renderer.

.... configure  MinimServer 

here you can find my configuration 

 

https://forum.minimserver.com/showthread.php?tid=4391&pid=35258#pid35258

 

then configure your control point 

in Lumïn app you have to configure MinimServer as your music library and UltraRendu as your player

depending on the number of albums/tracks Lumïn will take his time to build his db on your iPhone ... let it work until the end of the process ... I have a huge library and it takes about 15 minutes to load the db

I just connected the Ultrarendu streamer and the led is amber.

Do note I just bought it used online and this is the first time I'am connecting it all.

I rebooted it twice, ensured the micro sd card is inserted , anything I'am doing wrong?

The device is not being detected by Sonicorbiter URL

The Lumin does not show Ultrarendu as a player, its blank.

Does it take a while to discover?

I installed the app and setup Minimserver, the music plays and that's fine but the playback controls on the top of the app seem to have grayed of.

So I can select a song to play but cannot stop or pause a song.

Does this always happen? You could try to close the app, wipe it out, and relaunch it

then select again ultrarendu as a player ... the app asks to select a Lumïn

I've decided to use Roon for a while as there is the 60 days trial.

But yes I had tried reinstalling app also installed it on the iPAD but same issue.

You could try to install on ultrarendu Bubbleupnpserver, you’ll find it in the ultrarendu menu. 
once installed configure it: select ultrarendu in the media renderer  tab, flag it as open home renderer and give it an identical name as Name and Room, but different from the original name.

then open Lumïn app and select this new name 

you can reach the Bubbleupnpserver configuration page typing in the web browser 

your ultrarendu IP address followed by “:58050” ... that’s to say ip-address:58050

Here you can find Bubbleupnpserver web page with the user guide https://www.bubblesoftapps.com/bubbleupnpserver2/

... Bubbleupnpserver gives a more stable OpenHome configuration.

OpenHome “protocol” is needed to let Lumïn app discover the renderer over the network

I use JRiver on my computer to play from my Synology NAS to my rendus.  I control it with Jremote on iPad and either Eos (no longer available at GooglePlay but available as a sideload on the web) or HiFi Cast on Android.  JRiver costs a few bucks (just a fraction of Roon’s price, though) but I really like that it’s stable, will play almost any file without transcoding, and is genuinely terrific for collection and metadata management.  The only downside is that your computer needs to be running at all times to use it.  
 

If you need to bypass the computer because you don’t want your computer on all the time, I like LMS on Synology devices better than Synology’s media server and MinimServer.
