My music server, and Laptop and IPad controlling the laptop is in my music room. I would like to have access to the music on the server in the living room for background listening.

How can I accomplish this and still use my IPad to control the laptop and Synology NAC upstairs. There is ethernet access at both locations
.
The living room has no DAC capabilities at this time. I realize that would be needed in the path before it entered the prepro and then amps.
Is there more to this that I don't understand? The company I have used to set my server system up said I would not be able to have it work this way.
They are going to look into it a bit more and get back to me.

Do I need another laptop in the living room with JRiver on it also then to a DAC?
