Streaming from computer to DAC

Postby DayRadebaugh » January 1st, 2020, 6:17 pm

I have an Ayre Acoustics QX-5 Twenty DAC. It is on my Wifi network, connected directly via cable to my router. It is a ROON endpoint, and allows me to access the cloud to play music, either from my digital library or TIDAL. Everything fine, as far as it goes.

Would like to be able to stream whatever is playing on my laptop (Sirius XM, youtube music, whatever) to the DAC. Evidently it has a conversdigital board in it (http://www.conversdigital.com/) advertised to support DLNA, Spotify, Airplay, ROON.

Anyone know of a streaming application for PC/Macbook that will stream whatever is playing on the laptop to the DAC? I tried Stream What You Hear (https://www.streamwhatyouhear.com/) but it was choppy. It appears to me that most DLNA streaming apps are designed to stream a particular media file, rather than whatever is playing on the laptop.

Any help appreciated.

I'll let others chime in because I don't have any answers for you.
