Is there such a thing as an audiophile music player for windows?

    I'm a JRiver fan and have been for about six years. The only thing that I really hate about it is that you have to pay for the upgrades.

    Thanks for the info! I see the post was made today about the ios app, so I'll check it out, again thanks!

    Edit: I decided to download and audition MusicBee and from the little time I've had so far, I have to give this program a big thumbs up. Sounds great and has some neat features. I love the compact player feature. I was also able to select ASIO and ASIO exlusive to the RME ADI 2 DAC. Really neat so far. I haven't had a chance to check out the ios feature yet, that will be later this weekend or next weekend before I can try it out. Thanks to Roseval for pointing this program out to me.

    Yeah MusicBee is pretty good. Though I thought hysolid sounded better and had less of a footprint.

    Yeah, it's better when you realize most of the updates aren't worth paying for.

    Better?? I hope you meant 'worse'. LOL

    I mean budget wise. I noticed most of the new versions didn’t actually have anything that made my experience better, so I would only upgrade when there was an important new feature.

    Foobar with DSD Transcoder to output everything to native DSD256/DSD512 is amazing if your DAC support it.

    Audirvana exists on windows now. Best music player ever!

    use foobar

    Same here. OP, you already have Jriver, just use it, forget useless upgrades, they didn't bring anything worthy as far as audio listening goes for the last few years, if not longer.

    I'm using Foobar with wasapi. But I should change to ASIO for best performance?

    If your DAC supports ASIO, the only thing you can do is try.
    In principle WASAPI and ASIO do the same.
    In practice implementations might en will differ.
    This can result in a different sound.

    However, I have never seen measurements showing any difference between the two.
