Jriver is very good but the op doesn't mention video. JRiver won't play native DSD or SACD ISO files. It uses foobar2000 to do that. I think Audirvana does.Both can be optimized for playback from RAM. Some computer audiophiles feel Audirvana sounds better. You can argue the point with others on
Yeah, I have that one.
The problem though is that they render the sound in 64bit and output in 32 bit even though the file sin in 16 or 24 bit.
(And what don't we know that this player does?)
(PLEASE let's not talk about the bit-deapth phenomenon. I want a simple/ straight music player.)
I can like jRiver in some sense aswell, but now I'm searching for something else.
I want a player that DOES NOT render the sound in any way (or as little as possible).
My reasons are my own.
