I've been using Jplay for roughly 6 years, since I got a discount with a JKenny USB-> SPDIF DDC back in 2012. Those were wonderful times, and simpler times. I've really loved a lot of what happened on the way and I think what we have now in 6.2 is pretty awesome. 

 

But 6.2 is getting a bit long in the tooth. I reached out to Marcin regarding any updates and he told me "it's under development, but it'll only be released when it's ready". And fair enough, Marcin doesn't answer to me and I'm not trying to make him release anything.

 

What I'd like, however, is some communication on the topic. Some kind of update newsletter once in a while. I'm jonesing for a new Jplay. Personally, my system is at its best with DSD512 due to my T+A DAC 8 DSD, so I no longer use Jplay in my main system. However, I still use it on a simple bedroom system where I feed the DAC PCM. But I like Jplay, it's always been "fun" somehow, and I'd love to have a new version to get back into the main system (at DSD512) or in some other way. 

 

I'm reaching out here to hopefully convince Marcin to make up some official newsletter about the topic that he can send out quarterly. Or maybe tease out some info on it, features, or focus here in the comments. Or just hear from any other users here that have news on it or have requests. 

 

I love the Jplay hardware newsletters that come out, but literally every single time I open one I'm hoping that it's an update about a new Jplay version...

Hi Ben, 

 

There will be a newsletter with the official announcement. I'd rather not disclose anything before other than the sound quality is vastly improved :)

 

Regards, 

Marcin

Thank you Marcin

 

My different streamers have great musical results with JPlay 6.2.

 

By the way, i am really impatient to test your new release (in particular the fonction for Qobuz HiRes Streaming  ;) )

Thanks for replying, Marcin. 

 

Can you shed any light on when? Such as this year, next year, etc? There's literally zero info on the new release, and I've really been hanging on here a long time. 

 

I appreciate what you do and would love to hear more or be more involved.

This year for sure, perhaps even still this Summer. It is almost ready.

Thanks a lot, Marcin. I'll keep it on my radar for 2018 then. 

 

Good luck with whatever you've got cooking. I'll be around to have a look at it once you're ready :-)

Looking forward to it Marcin. I'm happy with 6.2 so any improvement on that will be a real bonus.

 

Are you able to indicate anticipated release date yet?

October is here but isn't over yet. My host server is ready: Java, MinimServer, MinimWatch, BubbleUPnP, along with BubbleDS Next & latest Femto USB firmware/tweak, all are here looking forward to welcoming the 2018 JPLAY and JplayStreamer.  Until then, trusty Foobar2000 keeps playing as a solid backup.

It would be awesome if you guys could add the option to use Jplay as a Playback Device that can be selected from the windows sound thingy.

That way it can be used for everything from gaming, to simply watching youtube or other streaming services.

You can already do this via ASIO Bridge: Using JPLAY with any Windows app (via ASIOBridge Virtual HiFi Cable)

Marcin, is JPlay new release compatible with Windows Server 2019? That is very important to know before installing the new OS.
