  1. Any links on where one might purchase the album?
  2. Here is my list: Play music similar to your favorite album/song/artist (similar to Deezer Flow, Spotify Daily recommendation). I rarely listen to complete albums and radio/flow type of feature will allow me to find new music, compared to listening to the same 50+ albums or favorite artists. HiFi Family Plan (This one is huge for me. my kids like listening to music also and they actually have better taste in music than I do 😁, they send me lots of songs via Spotify family) Sort feature in search result Ability to see and search for other Qobuz users public playlist I know Qobuz is working on this but having a consistent catalog across all region. I have found some playlist that are not US based and some of the songs are not available for streaming in US. Not sure if similar case exist in the opposite direct. This one I am still in the process of confirming if the issue is only occurring when using Bluetooth in car or does it also happen with Chromecast at home. If a song is not available for streaming I have to skip the missing song and press play (ios)
  3. That is one major issue that I have with Qobuz, which is currently forcing me to have both Spotify and Deezer to help me identify new music. Just relying on the playlist is not working very well for me. I want to ditch both those services if I can.
  4. Nope, I do not believe you. They are your favorite band 😁
  5. Thanks for this. I have some questions and I will try to catch up with you at Capital Audio Fest in few weeks time.
  6. Revoking keys is one thing but removing API information is kind of strange unless they are replacing the API with new ones and just got the timing wrong.
  7. That is disappointing to hear. Maybe they are moving to NDA/legal contract method before granting access to api.

    HQ Player

    Can you share how are you sending Amazon to HQ TIA
  9. At least for me all the connections are hosted on AWS infrastructure. The URL's in question that are used when using web browser are: play.qobuz.com open.qobuz.com streaming[#].qobuz.com The first two are basically the central servers where authentication is occurring and your profile information seem to be hosted. You can use www.viewdns.info website to find the geo location of the ip addresses and the first two are located in Ireland. The streaming[#].qobuz.com is where the streaming content is hosted. ViewDNS for that url gives you location as Seattle but that is not accurate (most likely they are giving you Amazon's HQ location, since the IP addresses are being used are part of AWS Cloudfront content delivery infrastructure) and based on the URL DNS lookup it seems to be around NYC based on JFK (streaming1 one is somewhere in NJ based on EWR airport name in the DNS lookup). The ping time to streaming URL are around 8ms for me which seems to indicate hosts around NYC area, since I am located in Princeton, NJ area. nslookup play.qobuz.com Name: play.qobuz.com Address 1: ec2-54-229-239-55.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com Address 2: ec2-18-200-231-166.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com nslookup open.qobuz.com Name: open.qobuz.com Address 1: ec2-54-229-239-55.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com Address 2: ec2-18-200-231-166.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com nslookup streaming2.qobuz.com Name: streaming2.qobuz.com Address 1: server-13-225-224-99.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net Address 2: server-13-225-224-115.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net Address 3: server-13-225-224-129.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net Address 4: server-13-225-224-72.jfk51.r.cloudfront.net If Qobuz has issues the most likely culprit is going to be play.qobuz.com URL and the infrastructure around it. Hopefully, as Qobuz presence grows further in America's they will start replicating the play/open.qobuz.com infrastructure in the America's region.
  10. The last time I had checked Qobuz content was delivered via AWS infrastructure. I will check tonight when I am in a computer. And Amazon occasionally does have outages.
  11. Any pointers Chris on how to do that on Win10 system with external dac?
  12. I am hoping someone analysis the stream to make sure that it's not MQA in another format.
