  • sonicTransporter & HQPlayer 4 Embedded Upsampling UPnP, Tidal, and Qobuz Streams

    I have been testing a Small Green Computer i5 sonicTransporter music server running Singalyst HQPlayer 4 Embedded to upsampling UPnP streams, Tidal streams, and Qobuz streams. The resampled and filtered stream is then sent to my ultraRendu via the NAA protocol. In this configuration HQPlayer 4 Embedded show up as a UPnP renderer making it very easy to send streams to it from your favorite DLNA/UPnP controller and server. Enabling HQPlayer 4 Embedded as an OpenHome renderer with BubbleUPnP Server then also you to stream Tidal and Qobuz via an application like Kazoo. In the next post I'll show you how to configure this feature.
