Since the 4010 does not decode flac files, I was looking for a way to stream flac from my PC to my Denon AVR. I use JRiver Media Player 15 via my laptop which is connected by HDMI to my 46" plasma. So, I use the PC/display to operate JRiver via wireless KB & Mouse (JRiver remote is available). What is really cool is my Musical Fidelity V-Link, Asychronous 24/96 via USB to SPDIF Coax/Toslink to my Denon AVR, has very little or no jitter! This translates to Audiophile 24/96 through my receiver using AL24 processing. I have several 24/96 "HDTrack" albums, and I started ripping some CD's to flac. I had put off PC streaming, glad I did, the V-Link just became available. Playing CD's from my PC to my AVR, now sounds as good or better that a CD played from my 4010. Just an FYI, especially good with an AVR with AL24, and some of the higher end Denon BB DAC's out there! The V-Link basically acts as an external sound card/SPDIF out, a good one at that.
