Thread: Jplay : Wow

  1. #1

    Jplay : Wow

    This is my first post on WBS, but I could not contain my enthusiasm.
    This weekend I downloaded both JRiver and JPLAY. JPLAY can now plug into JRiver (17 edition). You can do both for free to try them. I was previously using Media Monkey with Windows 7.
    All I can say is wow! I usually listen to vinyl with a smattering of digital. I can listen to vinyl for hours without listening fatigue, but I usually get itchy after 30 minutes of digital.
    With JRiver/JPLAY, I am able to listen for hours without any digital fatigue!!
    The sound is more natural, no edge, bigger space between instruments, larger soundstage, etc, etc, etc.
    Give it a try for free.
    I purchased both: JRiver $49.95. and JPLAY 99 euros.

    I've been in Rich's room: Custom and dedicated room; Magico's, Spectral, dCS stack. It is pretty amazing. The server he is referring to (but using Media Monkey previously) is the one that got me to sell my older server and switch to his. When we compared that configuration to his then existing transport (dCS), the server was the clear winner.

    If this is that much better, I can see why he said "wow".

    I will sure be giving it a try. (A $50 product? Is that even allowed to be discussed here )

    But it's really the ~$150 product (JPlay) which is likely the winner here

    I am not a computer geek, but I do believe in the high quality of server based audio. The "readers digest" explanation is that JPLAY allows your PC computer to deliver the highest quality digital signal to your DAC. It gets Windows 7 out of the way and prevents Windows from corrupting the signal. If you use a PC for computer audio, it is pretty simple to download the software and get up and running in just a few minutes. Also, the guy who invented it is really helpful if you have any problems.

    Yes, it is a plug in for JRiver and a few others. It can, however, be used by itself , but the user interface is not as cool as JRiver.
    I emailed the developer and asked him to take a look at this thread.
