If your system is compatible, it will directly be visible among the available audio devices and you will be able select it and start playing your music. This protocol is the the most universally used one, as it it not a proprietary protocol.
It is better known as Universal Plug & Play (UPnP / DLNA) and available on in more than 7 billion devices worldwide.
It is an open and complete standard that guarantees a lossless transmission of data over a computer network (via a Wi-Fi wireless connection, or thru an Ethernet or PLC cable connection). This common language allows devices and programs to communicate together, in the best interest of users who do not have to change their entire system because they change one part of it.
In this configuration, a “media renderer”, which converts and plays music, fetches the files from a “media server” under the control of a “control point”, typically your computer. In order to ensure upstream decoding of the files, Audirvāna plays both the role of control point and ad hoc media server, i.e. it is seen by the renderer as the file provider, which enables it to perform the necessary operations upstream of playback.
In UPnP connection, the latency is higher than in USB. As a result, some real-time adjustments are not possible in this case, such as using the internal digital volume control, or real-time equalization in plugins.
