There are a number of well-regarded music players that can stream audio to the miniDSP SHD Series over your local area network (LAN). In this app note, we will show you how to use BubbleUPnP for Android. You can download it for free, and upgrade it by purchasing a low-cost license.

To begin, in the Volumio interface (e.g. http://minidsp-shd), check that UPnP is enabled. Go to Settings, then My Music, and scroll down to Functionalities Control. If UPNP Renderer is not on, turn it on as shown here:

Enable UPnP on miniDSP SHD

Set the SHD to LAN input:

Select LAN input on miniDSP SHD

On your Android device, install BubbleUPnP from the Play Store. Go to the Now Playing screen of BubbleUPnP and tap on the icon indicated by the red arrow here:

Select miniDSP SHD for UPnP playback

On the overlay, select the miniDSP SHD:

Select miniDSP SHD for UPnP playback

You can now select the source of music by tapping on the dropdown menu at the top left of the screen:

Select source of music playback

If you have a DLNA/UPnP music server on your network, tap on "Select library..." and select it. For this app note, however, we decided to use Qobuz as an example. Tap on "Local and Cloud" and then Qobuz. Log in to your Qobuz account at the prompt:

Log in to Qobuz

You can now navigate through Qobuz:

Navigate Qobuz

Browse to find music that you like:

Navigate Qobuz

Tap on an album and press the triangular play button. Then tap on Now Playing where you can control playback in real time:

Navigate Qobuz

That's it for this app note! Have fun, and please let us know how you go in our forum.
