  1. Are you looking for a DIY project or a consumer product? What is your budget?
  2. Removing UPnP will obviously NOT add to the security of the streams. I really hope this is a BS marketing answer rather than technical perceptive.
  3. In what way? It takes 10 seconds to route Qobuz audio from the browser to any interface.
  4. What is that got to do with UPnP? What do you mean by "protecting the files"?
  5. I don't see UPnP / DLNA endpoint support with the Marantz so BubbleUPnP will likely not help. According to Marantz's web site and guide (https://www.us.marantz.com/-/media/Files/DocumentMaster/MarantzNA/US/Marantz_HiFi_PM7000N_Product_Information_Sheet.pdf) max resolution via network is 24/192. You will have to use the HEOS app if you want full functionality. The app can also access UPnP libraries like MinimServer, etc...
  6. BubbleUPnP has a cool feature that allows you to hide albums that only offer snippets and are not really stream-able.
  7. Is there a way to stream Amazon HD music to DLNA end points?
  8. Indeed. Not clear what was the criteria in this point.
  9. For 14k I expect this to support more than one network protocol.
  10. So, if I want to stream Qobuz with the Tambaqui, I have to buy a computer, install roon on it and pay monthly fee to roon on top of my Qobuz fee. Does not make sense to me.
  11. @brother love Why don't you add OpenHome capability to your Atom computer and then use a phone / tablet to access Qobuz? no need for fancy hardware and the various apps work just fine.
  12. Maybe you will learn something new. Perhaps you will gain new perspective? Who knows...
  13. If you need to add AES output to a Pi, you should look at these: http://www.pi2design.com/pi2aes.html http://www.pi2design.com/502dac.html
  14. The issue is not with the UPnP / DLNA protocol per se but with the implementation. Most high end audio manufactures do not have software developers in-house to deal with mobile, desktop and web based development. Take for example company X. They make excellent power amps and pre amps but have never developed a streamer or even an app but now, due to market demand, they want to offer a streamer. They can invest money into the project, hire software developers, R&D people, etc... this is very costly and time consuming. Or they can they outsource to a third party that has built a low powered
  15. I currently use Synology 1513+ with MinimServer / MinimStreamer installed serving 11355 albums in FLAC. I use RaspberryPi with MPD / UpMPDcli as the OpenHome streamer which is connected to a Hegel H590 via coax. BubbleUPnP is used on my phone (Pixel2) and Tablet (Amazon Fire). Qobuz is my streaming service of choice. ELAC FS 409 are the speakers.
  16. Let's look at this from a different perspective and a bit more rational, if you may. The fact that you reboot your NAS daily speak volumes about the efficiency of the software. If you really want to geek out into this, run a performance monitor tool to see what's going on in the background. (Hint... it's not pretty). Lavish GUI aside, you need to look into a software's ability to scale and scale well and Roon's ability at this is lacking.
  17. It does not matter. Roon can mine bitcoins in the background as far as I am concerned. The fact is that Roon is extremely memory / CPU intensive application.
  18. The comparison was (among other things): 1. Initial scan time of the library 2. Memory consumption at the end of the scan 3. CPU utilization during incremental scans 4. CPU utilization during playing a track 5. Service readiness since start up 6. Memory consumption over time The above are identical to many applications that index music libraries.
  19. I don't use JRMC but I have bench-marked Roon Vs. MinimServer on a Syology 1513+ NAS. In every aspect, like CPU, Memory, I/O, etc.. Roon failed miserably.
  20. Rebooting your NAS is not a solution. Roon is a memory / CPU hog regardless of the platform. This needs to be addressed by the Roon developers.
  21. For me, it's not about what you get, it's about what you do not.
