    Recommendation for Tidal connect streamer with HDMI output

    Well the story is simple. I am pretty happy with my Denon AVR. Unfortunately, it does not have Tidal connect. Heos app is a useless crap.

    Anyone know of a Raspberry Pi player that has bookmarking?

    I have a lot of audio dramas and audiobooks, the problem is most players don’t have a bookmarking feature so it’s difficult to resume from where I left off.
