Yes, you can even stream full FLAC to your car. You can run the remote interface on Apple or Android. You can even connect other libraries from across the globe. You can literally do anything with JRiver, most people however only realize about 10% of its potential.

Very interesting. So Interesting. Can I ask two last questions? lol I'll do the rest of the research once I have Jriver up and running on my HTPC.  

 

1) Is it feasable to have windows boot directly into Jriver to avoid having to use a screen? once the computer is up and running, just play with my android/ipod.

2) Don't remember what #2 was lol, can't be too important.

1) Yes, you can set it up to go into any display you want, or just boot up both Jriver and its server. Headless operation is absolutely possible.

 

2) Sorry, don't have an answer for that one :tongue:

 

Feel free to PM me if you have further questions :)

Weird setup, I know... Have just got the HD800, gonna have to save up some more for a better amplification.

Sell the Magni, get the Vali. Setup complete wink.gif
I would say that a 200$ stack driving HD800's is one of the sillier things I've seen, second only to the guy with the big Woo setup driving Beats Solos who sold everything to buy an LCD2 fed by a Clip Zip.

...and a better DAC. I own a Modi. I use it on my desk along with AE A5+ speakers streaming Spotify @ 320mbps. Nothing much to complain about, given the application. In my main system, however, the Modi has all the characteristics of a decently recorded cassette tape: an opaque, blurred, homogeneous presentation. At the risk of offending anyone, I found it unacceptable for high quality sound. As you own cans capable of superior resolution, I'd humbly suggest upgrading both pieces.

People over at the Vali thread have said an über Bifrost feeding a Vali into HD800s is an acceptable end-game setup.

Good place to start on a budget. Far from end-game though. I can't recall anyone stating that in the Vali thread. Particularly for the HD800.

I would have to agree with this.  I think to get the most out of the HD800s you are looking at an easy couple thousand.  I'm sorry but I have heard the Vali and Bifrost combo and some other stuff and it doesn't even touch some of the other setups.  

 

Magni and Modi is a great place to start though.  No one can argue that for $200 it isn't a good setup.

How do those fare from a 5, 10, and 15 ft. listening position? I have been interested in making some of these babies. Not the originals, I know :)
