Note

  • To listen to music on x-app, register the x-app music in the library of Media Go then play back via Media Go. For details, refer to the help guide of Media Go.
  • The home audio system can play MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, and DSD format files (only AAC files with the extension “.m4a,” “.mp4,” or “.3gp” are playable). Even if the bit rate and file format are supported, the playback of all files is not guaranteed. There may be a specification change.
  • Files with DRM (Digital Rights Management) copyright protection cannot be played on the home audio system. To check if a WMA file is protected by DRM, right-click the file on the PC. If there is a [License] tab, the file is DRM-copyrighted.
  • When you listen to music via a home network, it may take some time to start, since each DLNA-compatible device has to recognize the component currently used.
  • Some content may not be playable with DLNA certified products.
