Microsoft Surface RT - Page 2

post #16 of 24

Would the Surface RT or Pro work with an Arcam rPac?

 

I would mainly be using Deezer Premium Plus, so 320 kb/s audio.  I also have a collection of Apple Lossless files on my network, that I would love to be able to stream.

 

Is a Surface the way to go?

Dunno about the surface, but the pro definitely can, since the pro is basically a full featured pc, so it will read the dac like any other pc will

Has anyone found a proper app for playing music?

post #19 of 24

I have a surface 2, and the output is better than the original RT.I use Nokia mix app on it. My only gripe is that there is no gapless playback, or being able to use remote mic/ff buttons either android or apple variety common on some headphones nowadays.

I still go for my ipod shuffle when I travel.

Nokia mix radio. Just type in nokia in the search at the app store.

Thanks. I think I found it but its only mix radio now published by Microsoft mobile .

Still it's not what I'm looking for. I was hoping for maybe some simplified version of Jriver but but still more complex than what I've seen so far . Unfortunately  there  isn't much incentive for developers to write apps for this platform .

That's a shame because this behaves exactly like windows at list when it comes to install drivers automatically. I've attached a ss with the drivers from a Lehmann black cube usb dac/amp  .

Media Monkey works okay on Windows RT - plays a wide range of formats incl. FLAC. Don't know about gapless. See http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/mediamonkey/e8fd6da5-dc9d-4daa-9daa-a10d046b53ea

Thanks Babel , I have installed the app. It's UI  looks simple and clean but I still have no way to set the  output  like WASAPI/ASIO/KERNEL STREAMING.
