Thanks I am on Synology...Dont seem to have Jriver

I was curious about this, so I did some digging for you… If you want to stick with your Synology, depending on your NAS model, you have one or both of the following options;

- Run the Virtual Machine Manager package under your Synology NAS, and install and run MC for Linux on the VM

Or (if your Synology NAS doesn’t have enough VM grunt)…

- Run the Docker package, and install the containerised version of MC

I’ve not tried the above myself, I’m not into JRMC, and I don’t use my NAS for Audio streaming, but seems others have and it works well enough ;)
You'll never get to heaven with a smile on your face from me.

.....or just get a cheap 2-drive QNAP NAS..like the HS-251 Fanless NAS.

True... Probably the easier choice if he's not into some Linux command-line activity  :P

If you get a NAS to host your player, you are just dancing around.  End of the day, you will keep yourself a full blown server ....slowly, slowly, it will evolve into that.  Power is everything.

Welcome to the Lumin club.

What player software are you using?  You are playing on MP3....you need to stop this.

OK, the older JRiver Media Center has a habit to convert your files to MP3 for playback in the DNLA server.  You need to set that option to "Original".

I just got a Lumin T2, about 30 hours on it now and I am slightly disappointed by the performance.. Or maybe I have set my expectations too high from the online reviews.. find that in my setup even though it has resolution, I losing a fair bit of engagement from music playback. The bass while excellent with the amazing layering, is also getting too much focus.

Just wondering does Lumin require a lot of run in to sound optimal? I currently connecting to my integrated tube amp using the balanced analogue outputs.

The D2 sounded quite engaging out of the box. But that uses Wolfson not the SABRE32 in the higher end models.

Sounded way better with balanced outputs
