I just wanted to add, that after finding this thread, I have tested nearly all of the options offering transcoding and available on OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and for my small movie library, I can say without hesitation that PS3 Media Server is the. Many different media servers support DLNA, including the immensely popular Plex media server—so you can set up the Plex media server on your computer and use DLNA on another device to access your media, if you want. Plex’s own media player offers more features, but your Plex library can also be accessed from any media player that supports DLNA. DLNA, stands for 'Digital Living Network Alliance', is an industry-wide standard for sharing data over a home network. Depending on the DLNA-compatible devices you own, you might be able to stream films from your laptop to your TV, play an MP3 stored on your phone over your hi-fi system, or print a photo from your tablet on your home printer.

UPnP is an alternative name for DNLA, both suck.
There are some DNLA server programs for the Mac but see my comment above. The Roberts manual for the 93i has the following to say on page 37.
Here is a short selection of alternative UPnP server programs, although many others are available:
Dlna Server Mac Download Windows 10
The Music Player on the sound system can playback audio files in MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV formats. WMA Lossless files can also be played when using Windows Media Player as the UPnP server. Note that the playback of files encoded using WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional, and of files which have DRM protection is not supported by the sound system.

- TVersity (Windows) *
- Twonky Media Server (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux) *

* = free of charge or trial versions with limited functionality are available at the time of writing. ** = other platforms in development.
When using a UPnP server, the search and selection criteria are determined by the server software, not by the sound system, but typically include searching by Artist, Album and Genre. Many server applications also allow you to access your files according to the folders within which they are stored as well as other criteria. Windows Media Player is less flexible than some other UPnP servers in this regard, but is generally easier to set up.
Please refer to the documentation for your chosen server program for full details of its configuration and usage. Some Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices and some routers include UPnP/DLNA server software.
The manual is available here http://www.robertsradio.co.uk/assets/User_guides/Internet_Radios_PDFs/Stream93i. pdf
As a general comment, not all UPnP/DNLA software supports a function called 'transcoding' which means the automatic conversion of a music file to a format compatible with the desired device, so as the RobertsStream 93i does not support Apple Lossless if you try using that and your device does not support that format it may not work. I refer you again to my first comment. 😉 You should therefore have you music in either MP3 or AAC format for best changes of success.
