Shindo is wonderful Edun. I think it feels lonely without a Cortese power amp to keep it company though ;-)That was my conclusion , but couldn't resist to asking ..@ brumjam : how's the shindo ? LOL
And therein lies the problem. By the time you've tweaked and changed your computer and tried this engine and that engine and tweaked this, that and the other you are completely bemused and have forgotten that, right at the very beginning, JRiver on your cheap laptop sounded exactly the same.Then go tweak your pc/laptop setup and move eventually when you build up some experience with it to a streaming set up using a fanless high spec pc and the ultrastream engine in Jplay you will end up with an incredibly high quality playback device

I can't see how something that cost $100 is the equivalent of a $1k cable. Maybe I am being a bit simple, but I would think that a $100 computer program was the equivalent of a $100 cable.JPlay is the computer equivalent of the $1k cable – the thing that audiophilia nervosa sufferers feel might just be the final step en route to Nirvana. Even the free Foobar (with WASAPI or ASIO output) sounds every ounce as good, but as most people don't make a fair comparison of the easy way and the hard way, the audiophile mind clearly believes in the superiority of the latter.
