BibbleUPnP is better. Or try HiFiCast.

The network card on the Bricasti is a renderer/player, not a streamer. You need to be running UPnP/DLNA software on your network for it to talk to. It does look like BubbleUPnP may be your best option as it does have Qobuz integration unlike JRiver.
I know "player" and "streamer" sound like they should be the same and that you should be able to just send a signal to the device. The key is, unless something explicitly says its a streamer it requires a separate server in conjunction. Player, Renderer and Network Bridges generally require servers.
Thanks for the replies. I sold a Cary 700 that did everything for the M3 with a network card. I think I have to set up a nas for different options and getting DSD to the Dac.
I had a Synology server but I couldn’t get the minim server software to do anything.The server then got ruined with malware-I had been using it to store non music data.
I would use a dedicated player/streamer. With the exception of some really awful ones such as Bryston, they tend to work, have significant Internet Radio and streaming, and might have useful features such as Bluetooth, AirPlay, or Chromecast. If they come with dedicated storage they tend to provide ripping software that makes everything easier as well.
You definitely want the Network card installed. Sounds much better in my system than the USB with a few caveats:. The network card has the added benefit of Melco's ethernet filtering and an Uptone EtherRegen w/LPS upstream . SoTM cabling on the Ethernet side and Final Touch Callisto on the USB.
I can run Melco's native app ( Mconnect) only thru USB. So Tidal, Quboz , and local storage( Melco) are played that way.
Running Roon the Melco is acting like a Nas. So Tidal and Qobuz are running thru the Melco > EtherRegen>Bricasti. This setup sound much more transparent and open. Lot of variables involved but my personal opinion is the Network card is the way to go.
