Hi everyone,


  Does the new JPlay FEMTO support WS2019 core daul-PC for wireless WIFI control with an Android Samsung tablet for just FEMTO, not other streaming services?


Thanks for any helpful responses.

Looking forward to re-assembling my dual-PC setup but just want to understand the caveats with GUI or core install.

I understand Audirvana will not install in core mode.

Core mode sounded WAYYYY better when I was using WS2016 core for both Control and Audio PC so I think that is the way I will go with WS2019, and maybe use a different device to stream from Tidal or Quobuz.

Hi Randy,


My understanding is that WS2019 Core Mode does not support wireless LAN. If I'm wrong, hopefully other folk will jump in with better information.


WS2019 Desktop/GUI Mode does support wireless LAN and I'm using Bubble UPnP on an Android phone as a remote control point for a dual PC system. In Desktop/GUI mode you have to use the server manager to install WLAN support and then make sure the WLAN Autoconfig service is running (if not start it). Desktop/GUI mode can be optimized to achieve sound quality very close to that of core mode. The trade off is that you get the convenience of Desktop/GUI mode but slightly (emphasize slightly) reduced sound quality. In my signature there is a link to an optimization guide that you may find useful.





Control Point: Huawei Mate 20 with 128Gb storage and 6Gb RAM running Bubble UPnP, or Dell Inspiron 15R SE laptop (Windows Server 2019 - Standard Edtion Desktop) with Intel Core i7-3612QM (2.1 GHz), 1Tb 5400 rpm SATA HDD and 16Gb Kingston DDR3 1600 MHz RAM running Upplay 1.4.10 or Audionet-RCP 3.5.0
Control and Audio-PCs: Asus Mini PC PN60 with Intel Core i5 8250U (1.6 GHz), 250Gb Kingston A2000 M2 NVMe SSD (Control-PC) or 480Gb Kingston A1000 M2 NVMe SSD (Audio-PC) and 8Gb DDR4 2400 MHz RAM (both PCs). Both PCs run Windows Server 2019 (Standard Edtion Desktop) in highly optimised GUI mode with command prompt shell for initial setup after which both PCs run headless (no monitor, keyboard or mouse)
Optimization: Fidelizer Pro 8.6, Process Lasso Server Edition, MinorityClean 178, Audiophile Optimizer 3.0, a modified Computer Audio Design DSK script to terminate various Windows Services, manual termination of selected Services and Background Processes. All optimization steps described in my Guide for Optimizing WS2019 in a Dual or Single PC JPLAY Femto-Based System (updated 13 / 03 / 2021): (https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing)

Renderer: JPLAY FEMTO 7.0D UPnP Renderer (Alternative version), Server: JPLAY 7.0D femtoServer, File Manager: Q-Dir, Library Manager: JRiver MC 27.0.15
JPLAY Settings: Playing via: KS; Engine: ULTRAstream; Bitstream: Native; Bitperfect Volume: OFF; DAC Link: 500; XtreamSize: 1000; Throttle: ON; Hibernate Mode: ON
Equipment Configuration: Control Point Phone / Laptop > WiFi > Control-PC > 1m SUPRA Cat 8 Ethernet Cable > Audio-PC > 3m Chord C-USB Cable > Luxman DA-06 > 1.5m Chord Chameleon Plus XLR cables > Luxman L-505uxII  > DIY speaker cables (Tycab PVC doubly insulated 11 AWG OFC wire, TechFlex braid, Neotech Banana/Spade connectors) > Bryston PX-1 external crossovers > DIY speaker cables (as before) > Bryston Model T Signature Speakers
Music Storage: Main Library: 6Tb Seagate HDD/Hub+6Tb Seagate HDD (all connections via 0.5m Avencore Premium USB 3.0 cables); Backup: 2 x 6Tb Seagate HDDs (x2)

I confirm, Windows Server 2019 Core doesn't support wireless LAN.
