Thanks for the replies!
So, I started off over 10 years ago with Slim Server (now LMS) and a Slim Devices Transporter and Squeezebox players. I ripped my entire CD collection to WAV plus CUE file, and more recently have started to add higher resolution downloads (up to 192 kHz/24 bit) to my collection.
One of the Squeezeboxes died recently, so I started to investigate other UPnP media server options to replace LMS but could not find another server which supports CUE files. I have literally thousands of ripped CDs so a server which supports CUE files is a necessity for me.
I retired all of the Slim Devices players and purchased an Onkyo TX-8270 as a temporary solution. It works with LMS using the UPnP/DLNA bridge plugin, but can be a little flakey… I haven’t been able to get it to play anything over 96 kHz/24-bit.
Anyway, my plan is to trade in the Transporter for a DirectStream DAC. I realize that the DirectStream is a UPnP capable player, I just have not found anyone who is using it with LMS…
PS. I’m sure it will sound way better than the Onkyo
