Hi all, Ive been away for a year or so now, and I thought I would check back in and show you what Ive been doing! Now, ive sold my processor, AV amp, bluray player and will soon sell my current speakers. because there all obsolete now. I have a htpc instead! now im sure many of you will close this thread at this point because you have one yourselves or youve used one and have run into the same issues as me- no room eq, no zone control, glitchy UI, no speaker setup, jumpy video, cant use multiple subs or 7.1, no hd audio or dts-ma, subtitile issues and so on- well its all solved... and then some- JRiver Media Center software it does all these things, and alot more. for £25. I know its not a av amplifier, but it does the job of one bar the power amps. It will even run active speakers !!- yea, filters in the program and output with multiple soundcards. As for sound quality, its way better than any other option out there, assuming a good sound card is used. have a look at a thread here on eq/crossovers Native JRiver 64bit fp convolution engine for Room Correction (FIR filters)? and here on features vs other players (i just started) http://www.avforums.com/forums/home-entertainment-pcs/1569777-jriver-media-player-ultimate.html This company have been quietly doing there thing for 30 years, and just dont ever shout about themselves or advertise! So im doing it for them. (i have no affiliation with them) What you think?
