Has anyone looked at:http://www.computeraudiophile.com/blogs/mitchco/jriver-vs-jplay-test-results-156/Alex
You might be interested in this as well....folks from Jriver, DBPoweramp developers and others have lots to say about this "product"...http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=92856The only reason I post this is some have complained about the cost of other players etc...JPlay costs $99 euros...approx $130 for a 256k bytes of code?If it works for you fine...just hate to see people well.....Alex
Well....The parts in BOLD ITALICS in your post I like the best:"I'd been reading about Jplay for a while and finally decided to give it a whirl. This little program is the real deal. It's like the anti-XXHighend; just choose from a couple of playback options and hit the space bar. No zillion of options and dials and buttons to tinker with. Heck, no GUI at all. It's real ace in the hole is the Hibernate Mode. Playback in hibernate mode is close to magical. The lack of volume control options (they do offer -6db increments as of the latest version) and mp3 playback not so much. Since my output is straight to amp, this makes jplay impractical. But for everyone else you HAVE to try it out. The lack of mp3 playback made me think of trying put something I haven't done for a long time -"If people want to spend $99 euro's on 256kb of code that makes "your" musical experience "magical" ...well sir theres a bridge to be sold here ......Seems like facts and hard evidence are not needed here...this is sad.I hope some of the more open minded people reading this will take the time to read the thread on computeraudiophile and see the facts presented and make their owndecision about this product vs excepting someones 'magical' experiences blindly....Also take the time to read what the developers of Jriver, DBPoweramp and others have to say about JPlay AND see how JPlay responds to them!!!There is no way I would spend a cent after reading JPlays response.If getting at lease one person to take a look at what major vendors of other products state about this 'vaporware' then I have done my service to my fellow audiophiles.Buyer Beware!!Alex
Seems like facts and hard evidence are not needed here...this is sad.
One thing that I did notice was the JPLAY plug-in output is louder than JRiver, thus there is a perception that JPLAY is better. It took awhile to try to compensate for the volume differences, and in the end, I did not notice improvements from JPLAY.
The only reason I post this is some have complained about the cost of other players etc...JPlay costs $99 euros...approx $130 for a 256k bytes of code?
