Help with streamer software

I ordered a PS Audio streamer, the AirLens, due here this week. PS Audio does not have an app for their streamer, and I am not interested in using Roon. I found a full-featured app called JPlay that works very well for streaming Qobuz to my current Lumin streamer.

My problem is that I listen to a lot of internet radio, and that is not supported by JPlay. TuneIn and other radio apps that I am aware of do not stream directly to higher-end devices. I know I can stream to my ipad and bump that over to the streamer but the quality problems are well known.

Does anyone know of a radio app for iOS that will stream directly to a higher-end DNLA / UPnP streamer? Or is there another way to solve this without getting into the Roon world?

Thanks in advance.



You are probably right and I probably will, my curiosity will more than likely win out as usual.  I don't stream that much but with the availability of so much music on Qobuz that may change.  I have been trying to avoid Roon, my Aurender doesn't support it, but that may likely be something to try also.  Oh well, if it doesn't sound any better than the stream from the N20 I can always send it back.  Thanks for the input.


While the AirLens is 'Roon Ready' you really don't need it. JPlay (2wk free trial, $50/year) is an excellent sounding and full featured app for a number of OS, including iOS. That is what I will be using. I'm really quite interested in your take on the comparison with the N20.

I am trying to learn as much as possible about Roon but I am a little confused about how it works. Can I just download the Roon software to my laptop or tablet and stream Qobuz through that, or do I need a Nucleus in order to use it? I just read a note on the PS website that you can stream Qobuz through the Airlens, but they only mention though Roon. If I can do this with just a software download I may do it, but if I have to also get a Nucleus I will probably just pass on the whole thing. Streaming Qobuz is the only reason I am even considering the Airlens. I have to admit, the comparison with the N20 would be interesting.


To use Roon you need a computer of some sort, like a Nucleus. You cannot just download and use the software. And then of course there is the monthly subscription fee. Yes, PS A seems to be relying upon Roon to provide the interface. Give JPlay a try with your N20 to get a feel for it. I am now using it with my Lumin U2 Mini to stream Qobuz. It sounds the same as the Lumin software but seems to be more complete in dealing with Qobuz. This is the software I will be using with the AirLens. My AirLens is due here tomorrow. I can let you know how I like it and how well it works with JPlay. I expect it will work just fine. 

The whole you need Roon in order to stream Qobuz through the Airlens is probably a deal breaker for me.  I have posed this same question to PS but have not heard back from them yet.  I guess I will just have to be happy streaming Qobuz through the N20.  I am pretty happy with the Aurender Conductor APP but I may check out JPlay though.
