Why JRiver?

For the purist
Because the sound engineered into the CD is the sound you will hear when you play the audio. No changes are made to it by JRiver. Nothing will come between you and the recording. The promise we deliver is fidelity and ease of use.

For the person who likes to experiment
If you need to manipulate the sound, you can use JRiver to modify playback. Upmixing, downmixing, bitdepth, speaker control. Because the audio path is fully 64 bit, any adjustments to volume, bitdepth and sample-rate are mathematically lossless.


  • Support for all lossless formats of audio (FLAC, APE, ALAC, WM), AIFF and WAV files (including tagging)
  • Bit-perfect playback (visualized with Audio Path)
  • Industry leading DSD support (ASIO v2.2, DoP, SACD, DFF, DSF, etc.)
  • Rich DSP environment (Room Correction, Bass Management, VST plug-in support, ReplayGain, etc.)
  • Playback from memory
