DAC Apps/Software

For me the usability/user friendliness of a DAC's streaming software is as important as the sound.  I'd be curious to hear people's experiences with various manufacturer's apps to see which are the most user friendly, bug free, etc...

Get an Aurender streamer with or without a built-in DAC. There is then no need for additional software or other complications.

Streaming at 192 Khz is not necessarily better whether you are streaming Tidal or Qobuz because there are lots of recordings that were never mastered in 192 Khz but the streaming services upsample them, so you're not getting an absolutely true sound. Others will dispute this. An Aurender with a built-in DAC will give you full MQA unfolding to 192 Khz.
