  1. I have checked with Qobuz, and as long as I myself do not change of plan, I am entitled to renew at the same conditions, -same type at the same price (well, I assume at a certain moment in time prices will go up due to inflation or whatever). Dirk
  2. I have an older type of subscription that is not offered anymore. I can of course switch to the new Sublime+ plan, but I am in doubt to do so. I already like the Redbook quality, and with the money saved I can buy a number of albums I really want to have in highrez Dirk
  3. Can’t help with those 🙂 Since integration of Qobuz and Roon, I am enjoying now Roon streaming in the same setup as my own local library. although my Roon subscription limits streaming to 44,1kHz (except for purchased albums) I am extremely pleased with SQ. And this over the most crappy 100Mbps ethernet lan, that unfortunately I cannot pull new cable for (old cat5 category, due distance 1Ghz ethernet not sustainable) But as it is sounding great, I am not bothered with it (unless technical problems would arise in the future) Dirk
  4. I think this absolutely fine. And since you have it, start using it. If you feel something missing, you can always upgrade later. Dirk
  5. I have been in regular contact with T+A myself , and I have been testing 4 different firmwares on my T+A 8 DSD dac during the last 4 months. Pinkfaun, manufacturer of my streamer, is also producing Dac's. They use Amanero also, and they have not yet achieved/received a DSD512 capable linux firmware. I have never been in contact with Amanero . If you can indicate me either a new Amanero USB module with cooresponding Linux firmware, or just new firmware that allows flawless DSD512 with Linux, I am eager to find out about it Dirk

    Reading digital liner notes

    I use an ipad to control Roon. I also read liner notes on this ipad. Any pdf file placed in the album folder, is accessible in album/track view in Roon, so I do not need to do anything extra myself Dirk
  7. Please be aware that today there is not one single Dac with an Amanero USB input module is capable of playing DSD512 flawlessy with Linux.
  8. If Qobuz US has the same rights on her catalog, compared with Europe, you can except to see 7 albums Dirk

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    Nothing to do with Qobuz US as such, but just wanting to express my BIG thanks for the integration between Qobuz and Roon. Your streaming SQ is really, and I really mean REALLY excellent, even at Redbook quality. integration with Roon, being able to bring albums in my library and have all the benefits - just think about lyrics as one example - and also on audioquality - I am finally able to benefit from HQplayer upsampling/filtering. I have a lifetime Roon subscription, I will keep subscribing with Qobuz all my life. Dirk P.S. Let this not prevent you to further improvements and innovations 🙂

    Is 100 Mbit/s Ethernet enough for audio?

    Yes it will do DSD512, but I believe 1Gb routers are the standard today. I would go for 1Gb if I were you. Dirk

    Europen Jazz On Qobuz

    Qobuz subscribers are welcome to suggest additions to their catalog. Sometimes this works, other times not but worth to try anyway Dirk

    HQ Player

    When you uninstalled, did you check in the appropriate WindowS Prgrams folders all HQplayer content is deleted. I have had kind of similar problems in linux, where a specific HQplayer file needed manual removal, in order to get new install of HQplayer running correctly. of course Windows is not Linux. But does not hurt to check if you need to re-install again. Dirk

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    You can have 3 devices associated and playing at the same time. You can eventually try to clear the list of assosciated devices in Qobuz - My account - My settings - My devices . Devices will (re-)associate when you start playing . see also Qobuz - Help - Help Center (left down the page) Dirk

    HQ Player

    Thanks Miska, very insightfull. Dirk

    HQ Player

    Problem is most certainly in your dac (or micro rendu). I personally would go for a more standard samplerate, 44.1 × 256, as I am not aware of any device running 48x250. I find it curious that Miska has foreseen this rate. Dirk
