|Initial release||August 29, 2017|
2.5.0 / December 16, 2021
|Operating system||Windows (8.1, 10, 11)|
|Predecessor||Media Go / x-APP|
The software was created to replace Media Go and x-APPLICATION (Japanese: x-アプリ). Unlike those, Music Center for PC only focuses on audio and as a result it has had several features removed, such as CD burning, or non-audio media functionalities like photo or video playback and transfer. It is also not compatible for transfer with phones or consoles, but only with audio devices like Walkman, home stereos and theater systems, active speakers, and others.
Version 1.0 of Music Center for PC is based on x-APPLICATION (and in turn, SonicStage). Version 2.0 was released in late 2018 and had a major overhaul of the user interface developed on Electron. Additionally there is now also support for DSEE HX.
Music Center for PC supports the playback of numerous formats including high-resolution audio, namely: ATRAC (.oma/.aa3), ATRAC Advanced Lossless (.oma/.aa3), WAV (.wav), MP3 (.mp3), AAC (.3gp/.mp4/.m4a), HE-AAC (.3gp/.mp4/.m4a), WMA (.wma), DSD (.dsf/.dff), FLAC (.flac), MQA (.mqa.flac), APE (.ape), ALAC (.mp4/.m4a) and AIFF (.aiff/.aif).
