  1. Hello! I´m using JRiver Mediacenter as mediaplayer and would like to know if it´s possible to run Jriver (LInux-version) on a digione signature player. If yes, does an step by step guide for installing the necessary software on the digione player exists. Best regards Andreas
  2. Greetings. I run a Win 7 PC as a source to my Audioengine A5+ speakers paired to a Topping D50s DAC to stream FLAC music files. Wondering which option I should select from the given sample and bitrates.
  3. As a dedicated Apple user, which format should I select to download high-resolution music files? I have used other sites where the only option is FLAC. I have converted these files to use on my Mac and iPhone, but hate managing two different sets of the same songs. Often times I am in another location, non-mobile, but not at home when I am listening. I am trying out JRiver’s Media Center, which is a manageable price – streaming is not high on my priority list. If someone invites or wants me to listen to some songs, they are often provided in the FLAC format. Yes, I realize FLAC and AIFF are about the same, but iTunes still doesn’t play FLAC files. Hence, my trial before moving to JRiver. Any thoughts?
  4. This is a pictorial comparison of Windows audio players, including screen views, unique features, and support environment. It is by no means complete but should give you a general idea of what the different audio players look like, some unique features, and a snap of their support forums. The audio players include HQPlayer (mainly the Client), Roon, Audirvana Plus for Windows, and JRiver Media Center. (It is a pdf document.) https://www.dropbox.com/s/kmuo24gztr2v0j7/Comparison.pdf?dl=0
  5. So I bought a Teac UD-301 yesterday. I followed the instructions and installed the driver before connecting it to the PC via USB. I have my internal sound card set as the default device so no Windows sounds go through the Teac device. I have set the audio output in JRiver to the Teac asio driver. Sometimes it plays songs but sometimes it doesn't and sometimes the Teac doesn't even appear in the list of sound devices and I have to turn it off and on again to get it to show. When it does play, it will work for a little bit but changing song, or skipping the track makes the DAC just cut out. I connected it via the optical port from the optical out on my motherboard and had the same issues, so this isn't a problem relating to the USB input. Another thing that's weird, is that when it does work, I notice the output to be extremely loud, as if it's amplifying the signal. I have it connected via XLR straight to powered monitors and even at quarter volume on the Teac it's much much louder than previous DACs I've used with built in pre-amp. I don't even have the gain set to 0db on my speakers. Saying that, the sound is fantastic. Very detailed and I haven't heard the low end sound so good on these speakers. Any comments would be very much welcome. (oh, and I'm using windows 10).
  6. Guys, can I expect an audible sound improvement with this SOTM server over my laptop?
  7. We've just posted early builds of JRiver Media Center 25 for Windows and Mac on our forum. If you purchased JRiver in 2019, you received an MC25 license that works with both. Installation instructions. Thanks for the support.
  8. Hi Guys, Up for sale is my Syrah Server from Playback Design, Optimised for Audio through Hardware and software. Built upon the Jriver Platform and remote control is free to download from Apple or Android App Store. Sounds Excellent, Universal Voltage. Purchased from an Authorised Distributor. Retails: 6500.00 US. Asking Price is 3500.00 US dollars. + Shipping.. Price is negotiable for serious buyers with reasonable offers. Can Ship World Wide via Fedex.

I can load this up with DSD and PCM before shipping out. Buy with confidence, my proven track sales on computer audiophile speaks for it self.
  9. What is a good approach to listening to DSD files (.dsf mainly) with a Chord DAVE? Edited: (my error in setting things up).
  10. Greetings! I have an HTPC running Windows 10 Professional with lossless music stored and I want to activate two different sound outputs simultaneously in a 'bit perfect' way: - one is via USB for an external DAC. - the other is via HDMI for my AV processor. The idea is to use JRiver Media Center for playing my CD's and SACD's. For playing CD's I would use only the external DAC (no need to even turn on the AV processor). For playing SACD's in multi channel I would like to use still the DAC for the front channels but my AV processor for the remaining channels. For this thing to work I would need first to be able to activate both outputs at the same time without echos or any kind of artifacts/distortions. Then I would need to configure the USB DAC for stereo and finally the AV processor via HDMI in 5.1. I've learned that Voicemeter could handle the first part of the job but it is not 'bit perfect'... I don't know if HIFI-Cable and ASIO Bridge would suite my purposes. The only thing I know is that this is 'bit perfect'. Any help would be highly appreciated!
  11. Hi, I'm trying t get the best from my configuration JRiver Media Center 24 (on a fanless i3, Windows 10) Audiolab M-DAC+ (using the provided IUSBAudio Driver ASIO) Since the M-DAC+ supports up to DSD256, I give it a try, using the options provided by JRiver Media Center 24, and, since then I'm converting on the fly my material from PCM to DSD128 (it seems that my i3 is unable to do more than that without stuttering). SQ is heavily modified with the standard material, in a way identically described all over the world. I asked to my my guitar teacher to compare the different versions, without telling him what to expect, and, when I asked to listen a 16/48 converted to DSD128 he jumped on the seat, saying: "Uh!?!". Me, I'm using DSP Studio to do the conversion. Let me guess that I'm bypassing the Windows Audio engine, since with this configuration I can disable the JRiver Media Center 24 and Windows 10 volume). Is it the better choice? By the way I tried also HQPlayer with identical results. Now it hangs, and I don't know the reason. Perhaps I have modified the wrong parameter among the 100's available (HQPlayer reminds me a Caterpillar, full of leverages. On the opposite there are cars with the automatic gear. Me, I like better my Alfa Romeo with a manual gear, and so my JRiver Media Center 24). Thanks

  13. Hello, following a fantastic article from your site i was able, through bubbleUpnp, to stream my music via Jriver to my chromecast audio device and play it. Now i bought a second chromecast audio for another room in oud house and also installed it so i can use it that way. Time for my question however: using the Google Home app i linked the two chromecast audio' s to be able to use them together (and of course in sync). With an app like Spotify this works like a charm. Although Jriver an JRemote recognize the linked chromecasts as a nee dnla-renderer and i can choose it as a device to stream my music to, nothing more happens....no music..using them seperately they both work however. I am trying this setup because using Jriver ability to link zones doesn't work, at least not in sync. Any thoughts on why my setup doesn't work would be appreciated.
  14. I am having an issue in JRiver 24, 64 bit where I get a pop/click when a song starts playing and when the song is of a different sample rate. I was told I should resample on the fly. So my DAC does 24/192 and my files are 16/44 - 24/192. Should I just set all files to up-sample to 24/192 in JRiver? Is there a sound degradation to this? I am using WASAPI Event and SoX. I have also tries ASIO. BTW, this is only happening in JRiver, not Foobar2000, MusicBee or my brief trial of Audirvana. Thanks.
  15. Any comments on adding iZotope Ozone 8 as a DSP processor for a JRiver-based listening environment? I sometimes use the JRiver DSP EQ and Headphone-crossfeed tools to reduce glare and fatigue when listening to older classic rock and other older Rock and Roll music. Some headphones really need it with this music. The Jriver DSP tools work OK at this, but sometimes the bass clarity is compromised, but I accept this drawback. (I suppose I could just use the Ozone 8 alone for playback and leave Jriver out of the picture for certain ripped CDs or other files. These are .ape files that Jriver creates.) Reducing glare and fatigue in the upper mids and highs (most often on vocals) is the only thing I use EQ and DSP for. Any tips or comments are welcome. Thank you. (I use a Chord DAVE DAC.)
  16. I simply had to post this. As I was waiting for the servers in California to update, I figured I would load up Jriver on my desktop Linux machine I use daily. (I have used...and liked, VLC for many years.) After reading here and paying attention to the videos from Rocky Mt Audio Fest, (Even though the audio form the videos was TERRIBLE) I figured I would try Jriver. After all, free trial and all. I never paid any attention to the audio at my desk. (35+ year old Kenwood KR-810 I bought in 1982, hooked to Minimus 7's and a no name passive sub.) Better than typical computer speakers, but by no means great. Hooked through the old 3.5 in the back of my Lenovo. *cough cough* I listen to the home system, not this one. So Jriver gets done with a Directory with about 1/10 of my music in the digital realm. I hit the Rolling Stones Japanese 24/192 CD files. Holy $&%^!!! I have been missing something with VLC. Never paid attention to the settings I guess. Instantly reached out and grabbed me. I had no idea there was a difference in players. (Nor did I realize how good this little desk system could sound.) How much was that Schiit Audio DAC that plugs into the USB port??? LOL I have to play with this in the living room now. Thanks for sharing the word. I am going to have a hard time falling asleep now. Anyone want to buy a Logitech Duet?

  18. If anyone is interested: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/howto-vsts-loudness-virtual-zones-exclusive-mode-system-notifications-other-apps-sounds-all-together-oh-and-dirac-is-there-too-8/41949 Basically, it is leveraging the amazing EqualizerAPO while providing a workaround for it's one glaring weakness (going through the OS Mixer) using VoiceMeeter. EqualizerAPO developed specific support for VoiceMeeter API so in that case, it is not reliant on the Windows APO framework and will allow us to use WDM Exclusive Mode end-to-end. Example chain: Roon --[WDM Exclusive Mode]--> VoiceMeeter VAIO with EqualizerAPO --[WDM Exclusive Mode]--> Dirac DAP System output --> VoiceMeeter AUX VAIO with EqualizerAPO (set as default audio device) --> Dirac DAP Would prefer to use Dirac as VST under EqualizerAPO and simplify the chain but I don't have access to the Dirac plugins beta. Waiting for the new version. *In the past I used JRiver WDM driver for similar purposes but it had a really audible SQ degradation, cracks, pops, and generally unstable in my system to the point of being unusable. Anyway, I like EqualizerAPO better as a software DSP, at least functionality wise. And it's free
  19. This is JRiver doing 24 zones all perfectly synced. No master clock and 10 different DACs. Although, the SIR2 convolution engine is taxing the CPU, the i7 is still steady at not more than 31%. 48 channels in perfect sync.
  20. Since my old Rega CD Player died, I decided to switch off CD rom and move to software. I did this step in the past for the video\movies, now it is time for the music. I listen almost to classic music and expecially chamber music. I tried several solutions and still not found the best one, for example: - Windows desktop + JRiver - Windows touch + JRiver - Windows + Foobar - JPlay in different environment - Linux + MPD - etc.... Every solution tried anyway is based on a NAS storing music files and a USB DAC. I must admit that I wish "something" that does not force me to use kayboard and mouse to listen to music. I must admit that Jriver running on a Windows tiouchscreen tablet in theatre view is LOVELY. Ubuntu Linux + MPD is a good idea, but is not so flexible like JRiver and so on... Both MPD and JRiver, correctly configured and tuned, are very nice but... from your experience, are there real advanteges running Ubuntu+MPD over Win+Jriver and\or Foobar , from a sound quality point of view ? Regards.
  21. Hi all, Brand new member here but I have been a "budget audiophile" for 20+ years. Starting in 2004 I began ripping my CD's to FLAC and since 2005 I have been wirelessly streaming music to my Cambridge integrated amp/speakers and separate headphone setup. My platform up until two weeks ago has been a pair of Squeezebox Classics and Logitech Media Server running on a Windows 7 computer. Two weeks ago one of my Squeezebox players died. I considered getting another one from the used market but decided that maybe it was time to move on. So, I am into the trial period of JRiver (which I like so far). I also picked up a WDTV Play on sale just to try it out and it works OK when feeding a signal through optical to my DAC and headphone amp. My other Squeezebox is still connected to the Cambridge amp. I am using BubbleUpnp to control things and it works fine with the WDTV but not so well with the remaining Squeezebox. The setup works fine with Jriver's Gizmo Android app but there is apparently some BubbleUpnp conflict that I haven't been able to correct. I'd like to stay with BubbleUpnp as the controller because it has the ability to stream Spotify from my rooted Nexus tablet. So, I guess I'm looking for a budget friendly replacement for my remaining Squeezebox that could possibly stream gapless (the WDTV doesn't). Here are my questions that I'm hoping to get some feedback/input on: 1. Is there a way to correct the apparent incompatibility problem with BubbleUpnp and Squeezebox/LMS? If so that would allow me to keep what I have, at least for now. 2. If there isn't a fix, is there another UPnP android app that can get me access to Spotify that I'm not aware of? 3. What are some possible streaming boxes, other than WDTV that can handle FLAC (gapless a plus) and have optical out to a DAC. I'm willing to pay more than the $50 I did for the WDTV but I'd like to keep it under $300 if possible. I don't need any DAC capabilities, just an optical out. I'm not opposed to DIY if it's not too involved. I know my budget is pretty tight but I thought I'd pose the question anyway. Thanks in advance for the help!
  22. Hi All, I have for some time now been considering designing a DAC that is capable of only one sample rate playback - so as to optimize the circuitry for this particular sample rate. Yet, to make this feasible in practice I will have to use my computer to perform the sample rate conversion from any and all of the sources that I would like to play. And this may include tidal, CD, youtube, the National Danish Radio, etc ... I have previously asked Miska (the HQPlayer developer) if it would be possible to stream music from these sources using HQPlayer as the "sound data handler" towards the USB-to-DAC converter, and his reply was affirmative - this is doable. I wonder, though: - how simple/easy it is to set up a "streaming system" on the computer, i.e. is it also simple/easy to add new music sources (e.g. tidal)? I much prefer it to be simple so that I can enjoy the music instead of having to focus on the technical aspects. - what it requires in terms of software (preferably only a software & USB-to-DAC solution) besides HQPlayer ... (Roon, JRiver, something else)? Again simplicity and an intuitive use is key. - How stable it is ... That is does such a setup often experience interrupts, drop-outs, or some other "issue" that interferes with music listening? Besides the single sample rate DAC another option is a DAC that is capable of sample rate switching - like what a normal DAC does ... I just happen to be intrigued by the single sample-rate DAC - and before deciding which path to take - would like to hear if someone here has experience with such a setup from the perspective of reasonable simplicity & stability in practical use ... Cheers & thanks for any insights Jesper
  23. I'm a long-time audiophile in the process of converting my system to a computer-based source. I'm planning on using a CAPS v3 Carbon and JRiver. I know that there is an open debate on whether there is a sound quality difference between WAV, FLAC and AIFF, but I'm inclined to rip all my music to WAV "to be on the safe side." I am concerned, however, with not having the metadata embedded in the WAV files. I have a very large library of classical music, so I will be using at least a couple custom fields. And, I would like to have album artwork displayed. Am I likely to encounter any practical, usability or other tagging limitations using JRiver with WAV?
  24. Hi, I waited with Win 10 - 64 Pro Creators Update, and yesterday decided let's update, and in Microsoft usual way more problems generated than solved, I can start JRiver 22 and playback on the PC is working fine, but as soon I switch to S/PDIF converter (M2Tech HiFace EVO) blues screen appears, with stop code, and what failed: vadspdif64.sys. Up to this update worked fine with different versions of JRiver. I would like to know if somebody is having same issues? JRiver 22.0.108 Windows Edition 10 Pro / Version 1703 / Build 15063.483
  25. I can't believe the amount of pages on this site on the Auralic Aries and its software and continual updates. I do like to read about computer audio, but this seems insurmountable. My questions are basic: Will I be able to play all audio from my laptop wirelessly through this streamer? That is, can I play system sounds, J.River Media Center, internet videos and iTunes without audio lagging behind video? Will it be as simple as now when a USB connection lets my Benchmark DAC1 PRE play anything without any fuzz? Will I need major changes and/or additional investments to make the Auralic Aries work? The details of my system: I have a Windows 7 laptop connected to a Benchmark DAC1 PRE via USB. The reason I intend to change this reliable and simple setup is that I plan to go digital all the way to my loudspeakers. Soon, my new Genelec 8351A digital studio monitors will arrive. They accept analogue input, but analogue signals are converted to digital inside the speaker in order to make use of digital filtering and an elaborate digital room correction system. It seems “anti-audiophile” to let my signal be converted back and forth two times between analogue and digital. Genelec 8351As only accept digital input in the form of AES/EBU, which my Benchmark DAC can’t provide. (I don’t play esoteric hi-def files, I do like to have a volume control outside my PC so as not to accidentally blast my system – and ear drums – if there is a computer mishap. I’d love to get rid of that USB connection and go wireless, I don’t have an iPad, and my phone is Android.) Auralic Aries seems to be the way to go in my situation. But am I missing something in the 100s of pages on this product? Thank you, in advance
