Hello, I was skeptical about the sound quality differences by control point app.
But, as practices are more important than logics in audio, I was going to install Upplay on my desktop. But, the installing finished unsuccessfully. The warning says that the new folder for Upplay cannot be made. I know that here is not appropriate place to ask this, but if someone knows that this is common issue, and how to fix is known, please let me know.
By the way, what could be the logic of sound quality differences by control point app? If the app is located one of the PCs of playing JPLAY, I could understand that CPU usage of control app. would make the dfferences. However, I am going to install it, on another desktop PC, which is not used for JPLAY; not Audio PC, nor Control PC. Do you still think it would make a dfference in sounds? I thought that what contorl point app does is to direct which PC to stream what to which PC, based on OpenHome Media protocol.
