DLA123 posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and StreamingThe home I just moved into is already wired for stereo sound in 6 different rooms, and I have the corresponding speaker wire coming out to one centralized location (each of the 6 zones having separate stereo wire). I want to: 1) Locate the source of my music at that centralized location. 2) Control audio playback in the 6 zones via a mobile app. 3) Have independent playback in each zone, and play multiple zones at once (either same audio or different) 4) Do the above with the minimal amount of new equipment/cost Current Setup/Equipment: I currently have just a 2-channel hifi stereo setup for playing lossless music files, described below: External HDD hosting music files> Windows 7 PC running JRiver> MusicHall DAC> Rega Mira Amp> 2 Rega Speakers I use JRiver Media center as my front-end and would prefer to do all of the above in JRiver, but would be fine with using different software/app to control/host playback of the music to the 6 zones. Can anyone here provide me with some insight/suggestions? I have called a few home stereo consultants and retailers such as crutchfield/best buy but all they do is push the sonos stuff, which is really not a great fit for me. Thanks in advance for any help!
ertatta posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog Conversionso getting to audition the emotiva a couple days ago with 24/96 samples really has me fired up and has renewed my passion for home audio. was about to pick one up on ebay the other day when the idea of using my Mackie 400F firewire recording interface popped in my head. sure enough, playing back these 24/96 samples was even more revealing that the emotiva. it also has s/pidf coax in that i'm running my escient into. so, i'm curious to know if anyone(recording engineer or hobbyist) has used a recording interface for this purpose(as a DAC)? i am on a very tight budget, but am looking to get the most out of what i currently have! macbook pro & escient fireball E2-300 > mackie onyx 400F > parasound halo A23 > mirage m-3si
