Haha. No really, Audirvana Plus would be my 2nd choice, if Amarra were out of the question.

I've been out of headphones for a while and all the new audio players is new to me. Does anyone stream via Sonos? On my home rig it sure bested some very nice cd players and digital players.

I read about ammara being great but not streaming. Am I right that this means a direct connection to a computer would have to be made? so on the go a iPod is out of the question right? what are they using for that?

I'm streaming from a Sonos ZP80 through a Schiit Lyr.  Works fine, sounds great... although I don't really have anything to compare it to.  I moved this from my home system because the Bifrost is on backorder and I wanted *something* to feed the Lyr.

Fidelia, first it sounds promising however, the updates are horrible.  Program itself not recommendable.

Now i tried bitperfect, not impressive.  Amarra Hifi. recommandable.

I own a Full Amarra License, a HiFi Amarra License, and an, upgrade from HiFi to Full Amarra license.

I somehow did not equate :shared library" with "streaming" and frankly don't recall seeing either as a limitation in documentation.  I missed it.

 

One full license works fine because the library is used by audio equipment locally.  I can't use the others at all.

I have asked for a refund.

 

I purchased HiFi Nov 21 and the Upgrade January 4th.

Waiting to see what they say.

Yes, near future I should upgrade to full version of Amarra.

Rather than using an iTunes Shared Library, have you tried mounting the remote machine's Music folder on the local machine and bypassing itunes completely?  That should be equivilent to mounting a drive from a NAS.

 

Amarra runs stand-alone doesn't it?

Ya know.... I was just thinking about that.

Great suggestion.  Plus if I use a large buffer it should overcome any delay.  Maybe?

 

Amarra runs fine from a local iTunes library.

I see the matched combos on the Schitt site.

 

Question - could I use a Modi with as Asgard?
 

post #1035 of 6907
You can, here is an impression where the author mixed and matched the two combos http://www.head-fi.org/t/643368/schiit-modi-and-magni-comparison-to-bifrost-and-asgard
