Flac Quality

Having used Origin for a couple of weeks now, it is clear that the sound quality is inferior to playback via a different UPNP server. I am playing flac files via Ethernet streaming to a Linn DSM.
When streaming via UPNP I have the option to stream directly in flac or to disable flac compression, with the latter sounding better.
Does anyone know how Origin serves flac files over Ethernet, and are there any options to change it?

You can do both, have Audirvana decompress the files or send the file and have the decompression happen on the endpoint. There is a switch in the settings.

Can’t see anywhere to do this in the options?

Thanks. Thought that might be it but I couldn’t get it to work. Rebooted the server and it’s now working fine!
