What the f$cK is up with Qobuz?


Recommended Posts

I clicked on a track and found it uninteresting. Next thing I know it's being commented on by my friends on Facebook! I find this totally unacceptable and am appalled that Qobuz is using this information. Probably my fault for accepting this. I don't recall ever granting this permission. As many of you know, I was among the first to give light to Qobuz on this forum. I am so pissed off that I may cancel my subscription and never darken their virtual doorstep again. Cazzo!!!!!!

Guessing that you signed up there using your FB account. When you do that at a site you give them permission to post on your Facebook account. For that reason I never use my Facebook login that way.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Because of the many privacy issues or, more accurately, the lack of privacy, I won't use Facebook at all. I don't feel the least bit like I'm missing anything. If that makes me a Luddite, I'm happy being one.

BTW. I don't remember the exact location, but you can cancel the permissions for Qobuz from within your Facebook

Was it a Bieber track?

Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not." — Nelson Pass

..or perhaps "Bangerz" by Miley Cyrus?

 

Actually I did listen to Bangerz on MOG a few weeks ago. Yep, I just admitted it!

Qobuz responded to my rant in just a few hours. They were polite, helpful and genuinely apologetic. The response was from a real person who signed their name. I'm very pleased. Kudos to their team and no it wasn't Bieber, Miley, Jacintha, or Jazz at the Pornshop.

I don't have a Facebook account, but if I had one, I would not use the Facebook sign-in function for other websites, even if it seems convenient. Better keep accounts seperated. And be careful about what you "like".

 

Certo. I signed in with FB when I was on my wife's computer due to not remembering my own password for Qobuz. I've learned my lesson.

Bonjour,

 

Nous comprenons votre agacement.

 

Les réseaux sociaux ont ceci de particulier qu'ils peu vent se montrer invasif lorsque l'on ne maîtrise pas les réglages.

Cette fonctionnalité est paramétrable en effet.

Nous allons vous expliquer.

En allant dans votre compte Paramtètres personnels Services Externe, vous pouvez décocher la fonction.

Ce qui a été fait.

Authentication – Music downloads and streaming

 

Nous vous prions de bien vouloir nous excuser la gêne occasionnée.

En vous remerciant de votre compréhension et de votre fidélité.

Nous vous souhaitons de bonnes écoutes en compagnie de Qobuz.

Google translation:

Hello,

 

We understand your annoyance.

 

Social networks are unique in that they show a little invasive when not familiar settings.

This is configurable in effect. We'll explain. By going to your account Paramtètres Personal External, you can uncheck the function at Authentication – Music downloads and streaming

 

Please accept our apologies inconvenience.

Thank you for your understanding and your loyalty.

We wish you good tracks alongside Qobuz.

It's a helpful answer, although the tone tends to be a bit too condescending ("lorsque l'on ne maîtrise pas les réglages." = "if one does not master the settings"). Nerds ...

You might argue that this function should have been deactivated as default and only activated on demand.

 

But anyhow, I agree with what's been said above, don't use Facebook to log into anything, given their patchy record for privacy concerns.

 

It looks like FB is slowly becoming aware of these concerns triggering the following reaction:
