    Setup to apply EQ from TV(streaming apps) to headphones (possibly active/passive 2.0/2.1 speakers in the future as well)

    Hello currently I have a Topping L30II and E30II lite connected to the PC, I use Equalizer APO and the HD650 are phenomenal like this. I have tried gaming using spatial sound from windows and it works flawlessly with Equalizer APO as well. I thought I would be able to watch streaming services...

    Songs longer than 5 Minutes

    Hello, I produce a mix of progressive house and trance. I like to build epic 16 (sometimes even 32) bar chords and make it very plucky with fairly modern drums and basses. I'm just about to finish mixing my first song after producing for 1.5 years now and testing pretty much every genre. I'm...

    Upgrading Within the Bluesound Ecosystem

    Hey all, This is my first post on the forum so please correct me if I'm not following standard protocol or posting in the wrong place. When I was younger, my dad helped me pick out a Rega turntable, Sonos Connect, Rega Brio, and Neat Iota speakers for my bedroom. I've had that setup ever...

    Amplifier options for integrating TV + streaming into an Apple TV setup

    Hi, First time posting but hope the collective knowledge can help me out with my upgrade. My HiFi serves a dual purpose for TV and music, and I’ve been on a journey to find the best/neatest (are these compatible!) solution. Tried AVR and 5.1 (way too many cables for my wife), tried new A/B amps...

    Anyone use DAP as a streamer? (HiBy + Dock)

    The HiBy R6 III + Dock sells for $599. HiBy has a "remote" Android app that you can use to connect to this from your phone via a BT connection and then play on the DAP. Seems like a poor mans alternative to the EverSolo DMP-A6 / HiFi Rose crowd. This DAP runs Android 12 which means all of the...

    Source: Streaming Services - Detailed Measurement Review

    Hi @amirm / Reviewers / Everyone, Hopefully this thread is worth having, if not I fully understand and it can be deleted. I'm wondering, besides from a blind test, can audio sources i.e. streaming services (Tidal, Apple Music, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Spotify, etc or even radio apps like TuneIn...

    Ideas for DIY multiroom streaming (+ main system TV/Movie playback) on a budget

    To set the scene... around 20 years ago I was listening to FLACs ripped from my own CD collection on a Logitech Squeezebox -> Musical Fidelity X-DACV3 -> Audio Alchemy DLC -> Cambridge Audio SA200 -> Mission 752. Our TV was also connected to the DLC so one could have TV/Movie sound on this...

    Mac / PC as multichannel endpoint or DSP from multiple audio inputs?

    Hi - apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find it / didn't know how to phrase a search to find it. Is there any straightforward way (not necessarily easy) to {a} use a single Mac/PC as multiple streaming endpoints (e.g. packing 4-8 Wiims into a Mac Mini) or to {b} use a single...

    Tidal HiFi vs Spotify Premium? Can you hear the difference?

    Hi guys. I am a Tidal user (HiFi only) and contemplating a move to Spotify. The reason is that I don’t like Tidal’s playlist management. It’s very annoying. I was wondering if you could hear the difference between Tidal (CD Quality) and Spotify premium which is 320. These two are my only...

    Tidal HiFi vs HiFi Plus: Can you hear the difference?

    I have been using Tidal HiFi Plus for a while now. I used to listen to MQA all the time, and lately decided not to as I read a few articles against MQA. My new DAC (RME) is not supporting MQA either. This made me think that I might need to downgrade my Tidal account to HiFi only. ($10 vs $20)...

    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...

    Where Do I Go From Here?

    I'm new to "HiFi" so bear with me. I live in an upstairs, carpeted apartment so high quality sound at low volume (without headphones) is my goal. My listening tastes are varied, mostly jazz and classical with some country and classic rock mixed in. My current audio setup is a 20 year old Yamaha...

    How can I check the quality of an audio stream?

    Hi, There are now many offerings of online audio streaming services. Someone gives access to their catalog, someone broadcasts, someone takes money for it, and someone does not. If I pay, then I want to be sure that the service meets the declared quality. For example, now I am a Spotify...

    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...
