My Oppo Sonica Dac works perfectly with any other software I have tried. Any help highly appreciated

Hello @daponte which software did you tried that works for your DAC? Have you also contacted Oppo for this issue?

Hello @Damien3, thanks for replying

As a player similar to Audirvana, fundamentally I used without problems foobar2000 (with the installed components “UPnP MediaRenderer Output” and “UPnP / DLNA Renderer, Server, Control Point”). Also with JRiver.

It has also worked for me through UPNP Server + Control Point with: MinimServer, foobar 2000 (as server only), Linn Kazoo, Sonica App, Lumin App, mconnect Player.

Unfortunately Oppo has abandoned this line of devices and has stopped publishing firmware updates for my device. My only hope for a solution for what seems like an incompatibility of Audirvana via UPNP is through an update of Audirvana, since the current firmware of the device does not present any problem for other UPNP software

Thanks for your interest
