Deezer supported good value streamer

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am currently using a Powernode 2i all in one for my bedroom setup. Last week I bought an Allo Volt + D amp which really impresses me to the level I am thinking of replacing the Powernode. 

So am currently looking at a DAC/Streamer combo. On the DAC side I am locking on the SMSL M500, but still debating. The streamer part is more difficult. Deezer (which I chose over Qobuz and Tidal due to catalogue being more suited for my listening), does not support Roon nor Audirvana, is not integrated (hifi level) into LMS so no RPI support. This leaves me with less choice. 

 

I looked at thet Nuprime Primo HD which is 159 Euro and supports Deezer, but I don't have any reviews or feedback on it, so looking for other options and recommendations. Preferably not more than 300 Euro/USD.

Makes you wonder how serious Deezer are about their HiFi FLAC streams given that the Deezer Desktop app still can't be used in exclusive mode on Windows. it's been 3 years since the Deezer Desktop app came out with the beta HiFi version which had the obvious omission originally!

 

I was about to suggest using the Deezer Desktop app (as you mentioned Audirvana) with a virtual audio cable & the foobar2000 player as the bit perfect go betweens to a UPnP/DLNA renderer on the RPi - until I double checked, that is.

i was so happy when I realised I could merge my Spotify and Qobuz playlists to one Deezer app but then this lack of understanding that those who are willing to pay for premium sound quality need also better tech support.
