    Asset uPnP Audio quality settings

    Using Asset on Qnap NAS.
    Marvelously working server for network streaming. And GAPLESS!!! The only ones which serving it right through my AV receiver Pioneer SC-LX801 are Asset uPnP and Plex. Asset is winner by a mile because of its user friendliness and much better sorting options.
    Just wondering if there will be anything done for audio quality settings/upscaling.
    Or are audio files always played through in original specs?
    Can't find anything on this, so yeah it's a mystery to me...

    Thanx again for this wonderful package!

    Kind regards, Luc

    You can set to transcode the audio to wave, and at the same time upscale to 24 bit if so wished.

    Really? According to the manual, the upscaling is only used as part of applying ReplayGain tags:

    Apply ReplayGain ReplayGain is a method of measuring loudness of audio tracks and altering the overall loudness, enabling tracks from different albums to have the same volume levels (modern popular albums are much louder than an album from the 1980's). ReplayGain requires that the audio tracks have an embedded ReplayGain ID Tag (dBpoweramp is able to add this tag to files, install dBpoweramp and the ReplayGain utility codec from Codec Central on dbpoweramp.com, then run the program 'Batch Converter', select the main audio folder (normally Music) and select Convert >> choose the encoder the [ReplayGain]. This method only scans the files and adds ReplayGain values, the audio is left untouched).
    Only tracks which are streamed (in a format other than 'as is') would have replaygain applied. If the player supports 24 bit audio then enable this option as it allows ReplayGain adjustments without any loss of bit depth when playing 16 bit tracks, also set the Active and Inactive pre-amp to -3 dB.

    If you do not have replaygain tags then no volume changes are made.

    Ahh, so you can tick the boxes and if no tags are present it will still upsample? Good to know, but perhaps the manual could say that? It seems a bit of a fudge - would it not be possible to be able to tick the 24-bit box and not the ReplayGain one?
