Smartphone recommendation
« on: September 19, 2022, 11:13:12 am »

Iím presently accessing my JRiver server for audio playback via the JRemote app running on my iPhone. It is quick and works well, but I want to replace it.

My initial thinking was to purchase a streamer that would access the JRiver library, or its NAS backup, via DLNA. However, that is proving way too slow compared to JRemote access.

Now Iím thinking of purchasing a used smartphone just for this singular purpose, and because it will be dedicated to this singular purpose I donít believe thereís a requirement that it be another iPhone. Ideally, it wouldnít be more expensive than it absolutely needed to be, and the only feature I can think of is that it would be nice if it could be charged wirelessly.

Please advise, and thanks in advanceÖ.

JRemote only works on the Apple IOS operating system so you will need to buy another IPhone (or IPad) if you want to keep using JRemote.

Alternatively you could buy a smart phone that uses the Android operating system and purchase the JRemote2 app (a version of JRemote specifically designed for Android phones).

It was the latter that Iím after, and considering either the LG G8 ThinQ or the Pixel 3 XL, both of which I can find in 9/10 condition for $200Ö but firstÖ

I received a Topping M50 streamer yesterday, and today Iíll be configuring it for DLNA access to either the JRiver media server or my library backup on a NAS running MinimServer. As much as Iíd like to use JRiver server, it doesnít seem to be responding as well or quickly, but I will be testing both.

Look for my experience in the Interact DLNA forumÖ
