  1. Ironically, even though the Stylus Player cannot be used as a UPnP/DLNA streamer, the Stylus Server can be used as a private UPnP/DLNA media server as it has a built-in UPnP/DLNA control point that identifies any UPnP/DLNA streamers on the network allowing Stylus Server's music library to be played by them using UPnP streaming. So, Euphony Stylus on the Mac could be used with the OP's Marantz PM7000N for UPnP streaming over the network.
  2. You also appear to be confusing Synology's media server with its network shared drives - neither Roon nor Euphony Stylus can use UPnP/DLNA media servers (but of course they can add audio file paths on the NAS into their respective music libraries via network shares).
  3. ??? The answer is yes - JRiver & Audirvana software as network player controllers do not support OpenHome, only standard UPnP/DLNA and Peter Lie / wklie (Lumin Firmware Lead) says they should work with the Lumin Players!
  4. The UPnP/DLNA Bridge 3rd party Logitech Media Server plugin allows standard UPnP/DLNA streamers to be used as if they were (Logitech/Slim) Squeezebox type network players, so that they can stream audio supplied by both the Logitech Media Server on the local network and Logitech's mysqueezebox.com online (media) server, all under control of a squeezebox controller; iPeng is a Squeezebox player controller app (iOS only). So, given that Lumin players are not limited to being used as OpenHome streamers and can also be used as standard UPnP/DLNA streamers with standard UPnP/DLNA control points (as contained in JRiver & latest Audirvana), the UPnP/DLNA Bridge 3rd party LMS plugin should also work.
  5. Are you certain about this? The specification on the Innuos website mentions that the ZENith SE Mk.II supports streaming and playing of AIFF files (as well as other audio file formats including WAV & FLAC). So how would it be able to play AIFF files & have AIFF files streamed from its built-in UPnP/DLNA media server if they weren't stored as such? The WAV and (zero compression) FLAC format storage option restriction appears to be just for its CD ripping function: http://innuos.com/en/catalog/go/zenith-se-mk2-std See also: http://www.innuos.com/en/go/manual-managing-server-ripping-overview http://www.innuos.com/en/go/manual-managing-server-import-requirements - Note, absolutely no mention of the imported files being converted to WAV or FLAC.
  6. I don't believe it is much if anything to do with being directly accessed or controlled over the internet and more about the possibility of rogue UPnP control points on the same network subscribing to the streamer's UPnP events with callback delivery URLs not on the same network that could well be attack targets on the internet. So the UPnP Device Architecture spec change explicitly gets the streamer to actively check subscriber UPnP event URLs and reject any as appropriate.
  7. Wow, that was a bit drastic! Presumably you didn't have that many hi-res files to convert. A UPnP/DLNA media server's transcoder would not touch the original stored hi-res file tracks in any way, BTW, as the resampling is done one the fly on the network audio stream.
  8. What is your NAS's make & model? If you are using a (UPnP/DLNA) media server on the NAS to supply Volumio with the FLAC files over the network, it might have a setting to transcode the hi-res files to 16-bit/44.1kHz (CD-res). Alternatively, you may be able to install the BubbleUPnP Server helper application on the NAS to do similar.
  9. Who needs the 'extra' 8 bits, when C is actually upsampling, with a questionable minimum phase filter, as close as possible to the so called 'original' sample rate within the capabiliies of the DAC? 🙂 Also, the 'lossless' claim is not lost on elements of the hi-fi press that blindly repeat marketing statements: https://www.whathifi.com/advice/mp3-aac-wav-flac-all-the-audio-file-formats-explained
  10. Bob Stuart's multifold showing diagrams explain the belief. The first one slyly indicates that MQA has 'lossless' content in at least one of the 'unfolds', BTW: http://bobtalks.co.uk/blog/science-mqa/mqa-playback/
  11. Seems like the lockdown has got you inspired, watching all of those daytime auction programmes. 😄 Yep, ideal for the typical 'Bargain Hunt' contestant to part with £2000 for (thank goodness the Beeb doesn't provide them with that much)!
  12. The wording for this setting doesn't appear to make sense - both the Lumin & Linn Kazoo apps are OpenHome controllers and are not standard UPnP/DLNA controllers. It looks suspiciously like the lumincompat parameter setting for the upmpdcli OpenHome & standard UPnP/DLNA supporting streamer built into the Sonore 'Rendu devices. If that is the case, it should clearly be named Lumin app Compatibilty Mode with an appropriate accurate description.
  13. Case in point - what UPnP/DLNA streamer manufacturers have checked and (where required) updated their devices to comply with the recently updated OCF UPnP Device Architecture 2.0 specification, to avoid the CallStranger vulnerability?
  14. The upmpdcli UPnP renderer front end client for MPD (as used by Sonore devices amongst many others) would be one such - freely available & straight forward to test with.
