UPnP control point survey
#31
(05-May-2018, 13:40)ogs Wrote: @ssfas  my experience is a bit different than yours it seems. The CI has made an overall improvement due to (most likely) better clocking. I still have better sound quality via the Mutec re-clocker than direct. Similar to @Confused, but he also uses the REF10 clock from Mutec in his setup.
I am going to try UPnP soon just to know how it performs. One never knows....

The benefit from Mutec may be due to using jittery computer sources. I have never used a computer source. My preference has been either uPnP (which now works perfectly with beta 14 up to 192/24) or via a usb streamer.
250 Pro CI; Aries Mini+1tb SSD; Asus access point; 2 x MCRU PSU; PS Audio P3; Sky Q via optical; Denon DVD via coax; Claro dual turntable (Koetsu stereo + Ortofon Mono); Harbeth SHL5plus 40th Anniversary; REL S/2; Audience speaker cables. Qobuz Sublime (me), Spotify and Airplay (the kids). The wife just asks and I obey.

No, I do not think so. The Mutec is re-clocking the data stream itself. Your reference to the Intona USB device is not relevant here as USB is packet data (as is ethernet) and can not be re-clocked the same way. My signature details which devices I use.

Ironic that between the great clamouring for UPnP from early Devialet often from owners who upgraded from Linn and Naim that by the time it was added most people had adopted an alternative...

You will see from my revised signature that I don't use computers or anything in the least bit computery as I don't understand them. Hence I don't know what half your stuff is. I used usb streaming for years. Now that uPnP is working properly, I mainly stream Qobuz using bubble uPnP, I have an Asus access point connected by ethernet and powered by an external PSU fed from a PS Audio P3 regenerator. Really very simple and sounds lovely. The Aries Mini is now used only as a server. 

My family use the system as much as I do, my wife and I were watching BBC Young Musician of the Year this evening, the sound off the Sky Q box is excellent.
