Robust dependable UPnP/DLNA player

I purchased 8player Pro to play music (FLAC files) from my Netgear ReadyNAS drive to my Marantz network player connected to my hi-fi system.
Having tried most of the UPnP/DLNA players available, I was presently surprised at how well the app worked. It finds the servers available and connects easily, shows the renderers available to play on and just works. There are so many players around that are just “flakey”.
8player Pro has proven to be a robust, dependable player.
The user interface is good and intuitive, although there is room for improvement on selecting music for the playback queue and creating a playlist. Hence only 4 stars.
I did have an issue initially with getting the app working properly with my Marantz renderer but the support was excellent and helped me resolve the problem. Full marks for the support, which proves it is a live, improving app.

Needs an equaliser

Great app. Does everything I need except for the provision of a treble boost - my aging eardrums are hearing less high stuff nowadays. Please consider adding an equaliser!

Team reacts well to criticism 👍

Looking for a control app for a Pro-Ject Stream Box DS 2, I found 8Player. Maybe a bit pricey, but very responsive app.
There was a bug with file organisation which I reported. 8Player responded positively and inside a couple of weeks the bug was sorted. 8Player picks up all my streaming devices: Naim, Pro-Ject, RPi, Squeezebox. Now my preferred control app!
