Alternative to JRMC?


Recommended Posts

I have been using JRMC to catalogue and play music, primarily in 44.1 FLAC, but ranging up to 128 DSF files, suing one central W-10 system and one remote listening area serviced by a NUC ID.  My needs are repeated and uncomplicated -- basically playing music files exactly as they are recorded; Streaming unimportant at present; current library size: approx. 1 TB on NAS drive. 

 

My question:  Are there software alternatives with simpler user interfaces (fewer technical options) that yield the same (or better) sound quality?

My preference is for a NON-subscription system, but am willing to try alternatives!

 

Thanks for your guidance.

There are endless options. 

 

Given your current setup, you may want to try Audirvana because it could be a drop-in replacement or supplement to JRMC. The NUC could be used as a DLNA endpoint that Audirvana can send audio to.

Matias and C/A,

 

THANK YOU  for the fast responses.  Can you give me an idea of the advantages/disadvantages of each, compared to jrmc(?).  I assume sound quality is the same for all three of these systems?

Thanks again.

Hi Guys -- Of course I have seen and read about these systems, but would like some feedback from any of you who have had direct or indirect experience with any of them.

All of them have free trials. Just download them and try one at a time and see which one is your favorite and buy the license.
