    Which bit and sampling rate to feed a minidsp?

    I tried to understand this, and looked for answers all over, but couldn't really. I'm lost at the beginning of the learning curve and can't find my way back. I use DDRC24. I stream directly from Qobuz in my notebook, then to the DDRC, then to amp (a hypex nc252), and to jbl arena120 and svs...

    Qobuz or Amazon Music

    Hello ASR, Apologies for asking an opinion based topic on a forum about science. However, 'bit-perfect' is something to take note of here, as it is something that Qobuz supports and amazon HD does not. (Of which I lack fundamental knowledge of - so more informed people can provide insight as to...

    RPi4 or iFi ZEN Stream for Qobuz

    I am looking for a streamer to add to a RME ADI-2 DAC FS. It mainly has to work with Qobuz. Preferably the native Qobuz app. I am leaning towards the iFi ZEN Stream but I am wondering if a RPi4 with USB out can not do the same. Will you hear any difference in sound once connected to the RME DAC...

    Roon on MacBook Air M1 + streaming questions

    So I try to keep it short. Currently I'm using a Cambridge CXN V2 with the Streammagic app in my living room. (Qobuz+ usb stick). We needed a new Laptop anyway. Would I be able to run Roon on the MacBook , add a bunch of CDs into the roon library and access Qobuz while using a iPad air 3 or...

    Opinions on the music-discovery performance of current streaming services (and how to get the most out of them)?

    Sure, we all have a stash of cd rips and high-res content that was repeatedly vetted and benchmarked on various gear... But nothing compares to the thrill of hearing something for the first time that fits so perfectly in the moment. As someone who does ml by day (outside the entertainment...

    Are you moving from Roon+Tidal/Qobuz to a Major HiFi Streaming Service?

    Now that lossless has hit the mainstream, will you be dropping your Roon subscription in favor of one of the major streaming services?

    Sound quality: Spotify Premium vs Qobuz. Convince Spotify very high quality has good enough sound quality.

    Spotify Hifi should be released later this year. I don't know its pricing or if it will be available in my country, but it probably will be the best streaming service for me if it's available here. However, I don't have that choice now so I will be choosing between Spotify Premium and Qobuz. My...

    Qobuz albums vanished from Roon

    The Loudness Wars has invaded the streaming services.

    While I was listening to music on tidal I noticed this one track sounded louder than usually. The track was "every rose has its thorn" by poison. I directly downloaded the songs from Qobuz and Tidal to compare. I will be using the DR Tool with Foobar2000. Yes I do own this specific song. DRM...

    Tidal vs. Deezer vs. Qobuz vs. Spotify vs. Apple Music

    I'm into choosing between Tidal and Deezer and I guess I'll stick with Tidal due to being the only Hi-Fi (CD Quality) service that has a Family Plan. Yes, unfortunately Deezer Hi-Fi has no Family Plan, quite a bad marketing I'd say. Tidal Hi-Fi (16-bit, 1,411 Kbps) - No roll-off up to 20KHz...

    Qobuz vs Tidal App Comparison

    I switched from Tidal to Qobuz since the latter now offers hi-res music for practically the same price as Tidal's 320 AAC plan if you pay annually (not that I can hear the difference between the two formats). https://www.soundandvision.com/content/qobuz-drops-mp3-moves-cheaper-streaming-plan I...

    Streaming metadata - good recordings

    I wish Qobuz or Tidal had a way for users to mark particular recordings as being of high quality, so you could follow listeners you know and look for recordings they had earmarked. Or I'd settle for BubbleUPnP, or another control point to mark streams as high quality and share the same way. I...
