Is it possible to improve Synology sound quality?
So, after a few days reading manuals and transferring data finally I have completed the set-up of my new Synology DS112J. It is attached to my PS3 for playing movies and to my AVR for music.
One of my main objectives was to replace my iPod as main source for music. However, yesterday I was doing comparison side by side with various tracks and, I am finding the synology to be less musical. The sound from Synology is kind of dry and with less imaging whereas the sound from iPod via USB seem to be more harmonic, warm and musical.
Is there a possibility to improve/adjust the sound quality? Or, is there any possibility to equalize? Maybe by using a different multimedia server (ex. Plex)? I also saw options to allow the transcoding to be done by the Synology and an option to send “high quality sound” for USB speakers… I do not know whether any of that could make any difference.
