Thanks @The Computer Audiophile !

 

Normally announcements come right after it's officially released. 

 

Still not released but we must be close.

I just added this note. The announcement was scheduled to go live Jan 22nd automatically but I was sent links to other posting this. 

 

(Editor’s Note: I see it’s Jan 22nd in some places already and others have published this info, so we went live as well. -CC)

Hehe yes I noticed that too. Wonder if the first person publishing it actually leaked it or if they were allowed to publish?

 

Doesn't matter.

 

Patiently waiting for the update to hit us.

Yeah, nobody is dumping stock based on this news. It’s audio. Fun stuff.

YAY

 

Of course this means I have to make a serious decision of which ROON endpoint I want to use in my office system, and if I want to replace the Aurender in my main system...

 

Sigh.

Any mention of improving SQ? 

 

Well. you're some happy camper...this is just great news with many people happy to welcome it but you want to take this opportunity to snark and disparage the company.

You must be lots of fun.

 

Thanks Chris, great news!

Any news if we in the frozen North (Canada) will have access to Qobuz at the same time?

How do you improve bit-perfect sound quality?

 

There is more to the story than being bit perfect.....

Not the right thread to go into this debate. I belong to a school of thought that believes that SQ depends on many factors other than bit-perfect.

@wdw  ,  There is an easy workaround to get Qobuz in Can through an account from any of the Euro countries, I have a few friends in Canada doing this , ... I don't want to get into any trouble so just Google it :)

Trudat...many thanks..  There is a web of ownership between us, the willing audience, and these Suits....but which should be between us and the artists that offer us their music, so this delay.

I am happy to subscribe to Qobuz using a Canadian IP and give those guys with the high top underwear (opening page of Tidal) and MQA a heave ho.

Wow, can't wait till the weekend -- loooong listening session coming up switching between Tidal and Qobuz versions.  So far the integration is seamless (of course my library got almost twice as big overnight).  Roon has handled this extremely professionally -- not getting out ahead of itself, but getting the timing perfect to coincide with the US beta period for Qobuz. Congats!  Very nicely done!

They may be dumping Tidal stock shortly though...   :)
