dBpoweramp Renaissance - Ultra Light Resource Player

dBpoweramp Renaissance is a revitalization of dAP (dBpoweramp Audio Player), re-built from the ground up with specific unique goals.

dBpoweramp Renaissance is 100% Free

Designed to be the most efficient (in terms of memory footprint and resources used) audio player ever designed, featuring:
  • Built in UPnP Renderer: Renaissance enables your PC as a UPnP playback device, it can stream audio from a NAS / web for a distributed system where multiple playback devices can scattered around the home and playback from a single audio store, controlled by hand-held remotes, such as the iPod touch. (Renaissance appears as a UPnP Renderer, with Linn DS extensions)
  • Gapless playback: sample perfect decoding of mp3, Ogg and without saying any lossless format.
  • Bit perfect playback using WASAPI to bypass Windows mixer.
  • ReplayGain (not currently through UPnP)


See: dBpoweramp Renaissance - dbpoweramp

µPlayer will run on Windows 7 / Vista / XP (also on Linux under Wine, or Apple MACs with Crossover MAC)

By default uPlayer can decode: Apple Lossless, FLAC, mp3, m4a, Wavpack, Wave, Ogg, Monkeys Audio, Musepack, AIFF


As a UPnP player, requires:
  • UPnP Renderer: dBpoweramp Renaissance provides this, install on your PC, or a light-weight computer, such as ATOM, or ION based system, have a few scattered around the home,
  • UPnP Server: Asset UPnP is ideal, catalogs and serves your audio, auto updating changes to the library: Asset UPnP DLNA
  • UPnP Control: Many choices here, on the PC: Asset Control, on the iPod Touch: 'PlugPlayer'.

To Run, simply open Windows explorer and browse to:

C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp

and run uPlayer.exe (not uPlayer-upnp.exe), now your computer is a UPnP renderer and can play audio tracks through the default sound card. If you have Windows 7 (or Vista SP1) and want bit perfect playback run as:

"C:\Program iles\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\uPlayer.exe" --zone="WASAPI:-1:dBpoweramp Renaissance"

Advanced usage

uPlayer is designed to be controlled from other applications, either by the command line or through a COM object:

Default Yes this is very good

I can only chime in and say that anyone that wants to try the media server option ---> to share audio from a server to all in the LAN method. This is very good and works very well with the upnp server Asset (or maybe the good Twonky server)
Read the links Jason refers to.
I'm new to this but very amased about how well it works to stream your media around the house with the above tools.
(OK. Twonky also serves video and photo but you then must use WMP to show other than audio. Or the IE interface.)
The DBpoweramp company are more into only audio.
Cheers// Ove
