MinimServer on Qnap NAS - improved sound

I just installed this software on a TS251+. 

The music sounds better.

Can the UPnP server make such a difference?

@jb0194 - it really depends on a whole host of other things - but YES - it can make a difference.

For example, I use to stream from my MAC using iTunes. Sounded good, but then i discovered Audirvana - the improvements were very noticeable.

Audirvana bypasses the stock Apple code that streamed the digital source. Apparently Apple does something in their code.that messes with the digital content.

Hope that helps - Steve

Makes sense that software has an effect.
