Which upnp server?

I recently bought a Mu-So, generally very pleased with this.   All my music lives on a server Macintosh which is remote from the Mu-So and while the combination of iTunes and Apple's Remote application does work it's cumbersome, so I want to use...

As was said before, asset is reliable and the setup is straightforward. If you have a large collection of classical music, you should have a close look at minimserver which is as reliable as asset, but much more flexible. adca

The evidence here puts Asset and Twonky at opposite ends of the spectrum. Much love for Asset. There is an Asset for OS X; folks here will chime in with their experiences with it. It's much newer than the Windows version.

Using both Asset and Minim on a Mac mini core 2 duo with Lion OSx. CDs ripped as flac and transcoded to wav with both. I prefer Asset with the old Naim app and Minim with the new. Tried Twonky but found it less stable on my system than either Asset or Minim. Vince PS Streaming to a 2011 Uniti.

Well, I like Twonky (hiding behind the couch now...) on my Qnap NAS: serves everything very reliable, mp3/flac to my Uniti (and smartphones, tablets, and the like) and all those pesky video formats to my TV (and again, smartphones, tablets, etc.).

Yes, the Naim tech support guys recommended Asset. I have downloaded Asset but I've had problems with it miss naming albums and artists What specifically are the reasons Twonky is at the 'opposite end of the spectrum'? Many thanks!

Actually I quite like Twonky too, I prefer the UI on the server computer and the naming of artists and albums in the Naim server seems more reliable. and it's also a tiny bit cheaper than Asset Thanks!

Asset is floating to the top of the list, almost as the last server standing. I have it but I do not like it much; albums do go missing, the lists (artist / album) do not make it easy to just select an album and play it without going through a fairly long series of thumb selections. I also have Playback, which is sadly defunct, but it is still better; it finds all the albums, presents them in a more intuitive and attractive manner, and gets you where you want to go with fewer steps. I tried...

The 'sticky' with link from Paul S to an Andrew Everard review gives some nice information, but alas not to the question you are asking dayjay! Im excited about the new app though, looks nice interface. And with Android app too - that will please many. Hopefully it has addressed some of the areas that have been mentioned previously on the forum.

I'm streaming my iMac iTunes library to a mu-so with MinimServer. I like the way it sits unobtrusively in the menu bar. It works well with the Naim app on an iPhone or iPad mini and supports 24-bit FLAC and Apple Lossless as well as the normal iTunes formats. The one thing I had to learn the hard way is that you can't control the mu-so with more than one iDevice at a time :-)

Re: How do I preset BBC radio stations on my muso?

ChrisH ·
Hi Wils, I just had a look in the mu-so Product Manual - see page 11, Section 4.2. It says iRadio preset store functions are only available via the Naim app. But it does say that the first 5 in your presets list are available via the mu-so touch panel. To store a station as a preset, select and start playing the station you wish to preset, and then touch the star icon - this will store it. If you then go back to the Front Menu on the App you will see it in the presets list. Hope this helps.

Re: MuSo Still Randomly switching Input Sources after Update

andarkian ·
The only real problem I had was with the optical input switching off temporarily. That stopped with the new firmware. I use Spotify a lot on the Muso with various iDevices, often switching between them and have found the integration between the products to be very good and absolutely stable. I also actually use the Naim control app a lot more now and that also works effectively. Don't really use the radio but as far as I can tell that's fine also. Sounds like a problem with your specific unit.

Hi, Can you tell me whether you have contacted anyone here at Naim about this issue? It's not one that I remember having passed across my desk... Obviously we can only try to fix issues that we are aware about so if you can contact us on support@naimaudio.com (as per the sticky at the top of each forum) then maybe we can try to find out what the issue is... Cheers Phil Harris

Hi Patrik, I had a similar problem which turned out to be modem related. I was using a virgin media superhub. I downloaded an app called network analyser and that showed that the bonjour communication was being lost I think on my muso. Ask this question in the streaming forum and particularly to Phil Harris in Naim support as he was particularly helpful in solving this for me. I had to purchase a new modem and run my superhub as internet feed only as the superhub was dropping some data...

Spotify or flac files with naim Muso

soub ·
Salut, Je viens d'acheter un Naim Muso. Il fonctionne bien, mais je ai l'impression que le son est meilleur avec Spotify (câble Ethernet) que avec les fichiers flac (VPN) et foobar2000. Je me demande si il semble logique de vous. Je pourrais essayer avec un NAS mais je ne sais pas si cela a une influence sur la qualité sonore. Si vous avez quelques conseils pour effectuer son avec les fichiers FLAC. Merci

How do I preset BBC radio stations on my muso?

Muso - mains lead change.

Hi, some feedback on my experience. A few months ago I posted a question about whether people has tried changing the mains lead to the Muso - to make something that sounded so good even better! The usual Naim upgrade virus! A couple of responses suggested to leave well alone, 'Missing Link' had been tried but at the cost of musicality. Others suggested Nordost Purple Flare. The Nordost suggestion did appeal to me as I am a fan of the sound of Nordost leads - I use their Red Dawn speaker and...

Muso + Spotify Connect - Horrendous Problems!

I've had my MuSo for a few months. I've always had a few minor issues in my partner being able to share the device. She has an Iphone, I have Android devices - I don't know if this has anything to do with it. When I've used it and stopped, she won't be able to see it in her Spotify menu.

Re: Spotify or flac files with naim Muso

I'm not sure what you mean by VPN as opposed to Ethernet. Surely it's possible to connect to a VPN via Ethernet? But regardless, FLAC files certainly should sound at least as good as Spotify. Most people think they sound better. Have you tried playing FLAC files from a USB stick? That should eliminate any network issues and narrow down any sound quality issues to the files themselves.

Hi, thanks for your reply, the NAS drive has upnp built in, which I understand acts as a server for music files. Please can I confirm that standard cd's do not offer hi-res audio ? My cd's are currently ripped in AAC 44.1kHz, 879 KB\s , can I improve on this ?

Re: HD audio ripping from a Mac

Bart ·
Standard cd's don't offer anything over 16/44100. I'm not exactly sure what that AAC value means, as on iTunes on my computer AAC tops out at 320kB/s. Maybe it's a 'lossless AAC?' In any event, if you've ripped with iTunes . . . most people think that other rippers can do better than iTunes as other rippers have (better) error detection.

I've found XLD copes better with less than pristine CD's. I've had iTunes rip them (with error correction etc on) and had ticks and pops on playback whereas XLD has ripped them, taken about 20 minutes in the process though but with perfect results. You only want to rip once so do it properly - use XLD on the Mac.
