I think this thread is evidence that there are issues with Windows apps. It’s a general purpose OS. I don’t get the pushback. 


Yeah... Roon, then everything is taken care of. What’s all this fuss?!

Qobuz Team:

 

Any update or timeline for getting the Curb label and Bob Segar in the US?

 

This was mentioned many pages back.

 

I emailed Curb Records about this, and not surprisingly, received no reply.

 

I'm a fan of Lyle Lovett (on Curb), so was surprised to find that his albums are not on Qobuz in the US.

Still trying on both, it is in their hands completely. I am sure fan interest will make a difference so keep pushing on your end!

I'll send Curb another email from my other email address, so they'll think at least 2 people are pushing, LOL.  😀

Biggest issue with all the streamers is the near total lack of multichannel files.  😡

"The gullibility of audiophiles is what astonishes me the most, even after all these years. How is it possible, how did it ever happen, that they trust fairy-tale purveyors and mystic gurus more than reliable sources of scientific information?"

instead add 4-6 speakers a center channel and a powered subwoofer and viola multichannel !! or get a dvd-a sacd changer cheap on amazon with outlaw audio bass manager ICBM and buy a bunch of them discs to use on the changer PLUS that speaker set up--that way the services/players don't have to waste THEIR $$ on multichannel then watch your CFO go bonkers with all that mess!

@dmackta @David Craff  Hello- I have a request-I found on archives.org on their Grateful Dead subsection a VRB MP3 files of 162 songs entitled "All  Grateful Dead Original Song Debuts ('66-95)" compiled by Eyesoftheworld94. I downloaded them they reside on my hard-drive individually and in a 'zip' file in 'FINDER' as a download-- i have no idea how to transfer them(EASILY) as a playlist to Qobuz(for that matter to TIDAL) or to my ROON playlists or to A+3.5.

Could your engineers download this file and create a playlist offered under the 'Folk/Americana' genre section in the Grateful Dead offerings? This is a free uncopywritten set of dead songs made by individuals at the time so it would not violate any Dead material/copyrights as it is available to anyone(which is the way the Dead operated anyway).

I found this by accident and it sort of completes my collection of the Dead- did it for 'schiits and giggles' just to hear what they sounded like wayback when--- depending on the soundboards those deadheads recorded on some songs are great others pretty poor but they are first time they ever sang them and I don't care if they are only MP3's everything sounds good on Qobuz.

Thank you and Happy Holidays and New Year-thanks for being here in the USA

I though this thread will be a more effective way of posting diagnosis for DLNA issues between Qobuz and various MPD based pi-machines.

 

So, I've turned on the DLNA in Beta in my Mac application, version 5.4.0-b009.

 

My Volumio shows up as a device that I can pick as output device, but playback never happens.

 

In the activity log saved, nothing looks helpful.

But in my Volumio MPD log, things looks a bit more interesting.

Is this helpful information? Though it works pretty well with BubbleUPnP, I think having the wonderful UI from the desktop app is still comparably better.

@dmackta @David Craff can Qobuz hire Damien as a consultant and get DLNA working in the Qobuz desktop app?  DLNA has worked very well in Audirvana for a long time already.

 

Qobuz has a really nice desktop app.  Where is support for DLNA/UPnP endpoints in your list of priorities?


Not them, but I expect it would be after Christmas. 😉 Happy holidays, @rickca!

We have to add some feature before, like secure audio flow

Can you please explain what secure audio flow is?  OK I understand you have development line items with higher priority than DLNA.

Nope all the volume leveling info for our catalog should be delivered to Roon by beginning of next month. And all new releases going forward have it. 

 

I'm finding that Qobuz volume leveling information is quite different (much higher dB) than both Roon local analyzed tracks as well as Tidal with Roon set to use the same LUFS value.  Qobuz can be +6-10dB higher than the others.

 

Qobuz also only seems to have included track leveling not album leveling.  Having disparate vol leveling data in Roon makes the function much less useful.  Roon folks said to contact Qobuz, which I've done but received a response that there is no vol leveling data plus no plans to add it (which is clearly wrong at least for Roon).

 

Can you elaborate if these problems are known and are being worked on or addressed or is this new information?

 

Thank you

I'm no longer able to log in to Qobuz in the Kazoo app (neither the iPad app or the desktop app).

 

I have a US qobuz subscription and a microRendu with latest sonicorbitor running on it.  I'm running the latest version of Kazoo from Linn. It's supposed to work; it used to work.  Here is what happens:

 

When I type my username and password into the qobuz login screen within the Kazoo app on my computer it just spins and "blinks" about ever 3-5 seconds, but never really logs in.  When I try the same on my iPad, it tries to make contact and then returns to a blank login screen repeatedly.  I am sure I am using the correct password, because it works fine for logging directly into qobuz website and qobuz app.

 

It's difficult to know where the issue is: Sonore? Linn? Qobuz, so I'm posting here in case it's a known issue to the kind folks at Qobuz.

 

I have turned to Jesus at Sonore, and he didn't have a solution to suggest.

 

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Downloaded the free MConnect app to my iPhone.

 

Logged in without a hitch.  Playing right now.

 

Any limitations to this app?  Is it at least as good as Kazoo in paid version?

 

Does it do qobuz and local HD, 24 bit, 192 files, etc?

 

Thanks!
