The ND555 product specifications in https://www.naimaudio.com/site...0Paper%20Final_0.pdf report, among others:
UPnP Server | Yes local USB content
How is this to be interpreted? Does it mean that the ND555 runs a UPnP server on the contents of USB drives? Which server? This would be an interesting novelty because, to the best of my knowledge, Naim streamers can so far replay files from a local USB drive but they do not make these files available to control applications and to networked renderers via a UPnP server.
It does what it says on the tin. Naim's server runs on the new streamers, and serves music files from USB attached storage by UPnP.
In this case the new streamers are also UPnP servers and one does not need any Core or NAS to feed them. Why are then people here discussing the impacts of ethernet cables, switches, servers, direct vs. indirect connections, etc.on the ND555?
As far as I can see, the Nova can’t act as a client to its own UPNP server. If you put a USB stick in the slot, then you play directly from the stick.
