As a fan of discrete surround audio (mostly bought online from iTrax in California or ripped to my hard drive from my DVD-A and Blu-ray disks), I use the DLNA player built into my Oppo BDP-93, since the DLNA players built into even the newest Yamaha Aventages play them only in stereo - the Oppos can play 5.1 FLACs in their full glory.
Yes, the network file browser in the 93 is crude, but I can't use tag-based players because I use "junction" folders to cross-index albums under multiple musicians' names, which tag-based players see as multiple copies of each track - so they play every virtual copy of a track before advancing to the next track in the album: 1,1,1,2,2,2, etc.
So I set up a nested index folder:
A - G
H - M.
etc. with each letter getting its own subfolder, and when scrolling through a letter gets tedious, I'll subdivide a letter into further subfolders encyclopedia-style: Sa - Sm, Sn - Sz
This way, I can drill down to find an album under an artist or composer fairly quickly.
The index should not contain any actual music files, which should live in a separate library tree. No links in the index should point directly to anywhere else in the index. (If they do, rearranging the index structure will break links.)
Once this is set up, you can then use foobar2000 with its foo_upnp plugin to create a second UPnP server to syndicate your index folder over the internet to other such setups using the BubbleUPnP servier (all of these are Windows freeware). For $5, you can buy a license for a copy of BubbleUPnP to run on your Android phone or tablet, and listen on the go. You can set the relay to Android to play in full resolution stereo when on WiFi and to send as an MP3 when using the phone company's data connection.
Plus, foobar and the BubbleUPnP Android client each has a search function, something I'd dearly like to have on the Oppo!
