MMA to HEOS

I'm considering buying Denon HEOS wireless speakers. I would like to use an Android tablet store my files and control the speakers. I've read that the HEOS app is abysmal. Can I use MMA instead of the HEOS app? Can it organize the speakers via wireless, as well as sending the files?
Note: my understanding of setting up networks is pretty slim, so I need a solution that is pretty straight foreward.
Thanks.

Hi,
From what I read in HEOS manual it is closely tied to HEOS app. If MMA do Not see Speaker as Casting device then most likely it is not possible.

I see a rising trend not to include chromecast service into device but rather use own app (guess that way is cheaper) , talk to denon first maybe they will enlighten you on how to setup DLNA and be able to simply cast to speaker.

Thanks Peke,
Don't think II'm going to get much help from Denon. Tried their Live Chat and phoning them. Didn't respond either way. They do have some info on DLNA here: https://denon.custhelp.com/app/answers/ ... -with-heos
Thanks again,
Nick

Hi,
if Their statement "In DLNA terms, HEOS would be referred to as a Digital Media Controller (DMC) and a Digital Media Renderer. (DMR)" then you should be able to see HEOS DMR both in Windows explorer -> Network and under MMW (Right Click on Player -> Choose Player) and in MMA under MMA ... -> Cast To.

If not I guess that they needs to explain to you how to setup and use HEOS as Digital Media Renderer. (DMR)
