What computer software audio player?
What software player is good for windows PC?
I'm feeding my Mc8900 with flacs stored on my PC.
Groove is easy, but it doesn't sound as good as Jriver.
I'm wondering what AAers use.

Roon here also

Roon is expensive but it's by far the best streaming/local library consolidation and player solution. It's fantastic!

Roon has its fans, I know, but others of us will make the case for JRiver. I use both because I find Roon seductively appealing but often annoying while I can control JRiver and bend it to my will. It is a personal thing.

JRiver with JRemote and media server. Win10 pro running on i7 SurfacePro 3 with 8 GB of ram. Files stored on another Win10 machine elsewhere in the house.

For the fans of Roon, does the player sound better than Jriver? Or does it just have better features?
I'm not into multi room playing.
I'm no fan of Jriver and was going to uninstall it after my free trial. On the last day I A/B'd the Jriver against groove and Jriver sounds better, more natural. Groove sounds good too, the highs just seem agitating.

JRiver Media Center 25 on all three of my Windows 10-based systems (one desktop, two laptops). The music files are stored on an external hard drive connected to each computer.

Hands down.

And the recent software update version 1.6, Build 416 just made it better; just some of the improved functionality and features:
  1. Artists photos rotate if track has more than one performer
  2. Liner notes, additional images and PDF link added
  3. Better images in some cases
  4. Navigation and Zone tabs close when opening Now Playing screen
  5. Un-identified non-library composition’s name/part names are displayed
  6. Fixed bug displaying internet radio images, and disabled L/R keys
  7. Better handling of unavailable content
