Sound quality was compared playing discs directly from Marantz SA-10 versus playing from streamer using HYSOLID and JPLAY FEMTO on Windows 10.
After trying various Linux and Windows playback software, I finally found the best software which brings my streamer to a different level.
Continue playback software evaluation, including fine tuning of SA-10 USB DAC ASIO latency and buffer size which resulted in great sound.
Explored Logitech Media Server (LMS) on Windows 10. LMS installation was easy, but the Squeezelite local player can only play up to DSD 2x.
In my earlier posts, I mentioned Euphony gives the best sound quality. However, Euphony is not free and is not cheap either. For someone who builds their own music streamer/server and keen to know which playback and streaming software should be used, this post has some answers.
