Question Are there Alternatives to MusicCast?

Interested in a network/streamer to connect to a NAS drive storing FLAC files.

The Yamaha WXC-50 looks ok but the Musiccast softer is poor for searching files on a NAS.
Are there any other apps that would allow access to a NAS, search and work with the WXC-50 either hard wired of wifi.

Would be used on an a Ipad.


The WXC-50 can be used as a UPnP/DLNA streamer, so you should be able to control it with any standard UPnP/DLNA controller app. For iOS try the mConnect Player app (free Lite version available; HD paid version is specifically for the iPad).

What is your NAS, BTW? It might be able to run the BubbleUPnP Server helper software, which would allow you to also use OpenHome streamer controller apps on the iPad (such as Linn Kazoo & Lumin, both free) with the WXC-50.
