Roy, thanks still again.
Can the MR be used with JRiver Media Center?
After finding out that DSD files can run natively with Windows 10 through Parallels Desktop 11 using a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.11.5, I am ready to see if MR can improve on the sound.
I love the the sound of Roon now running with DSD files using above software setup but Roon does not support Asian characters, as yet. Some 10,000 titles of mine are Asian.
JRiver does support and the sound is really close to Roon.
So, I wonder if MR can work with JRiver.
Naturally, I will be trying MR using just the Mac OS to see if my system can play DSD files under Mac.
The microRendu is capable of running in 4 output modes with RoonReady representing only one of those modes (mode #4). People are talking about using JRiver with their microRendu in DLNA output mode (mode #3) although I have not tried it since I no longer use JRiver. Fortunately, DLNA output mode is capable of native DSD playback so you should be in good shape.
