    Not allowed by Spotify. Same reason as not allowed for inclusion into Roon.

    Please internet upgrade the Lumin to Firmware 14.1 Thanks for the list, I believe most of them should work now. For a few stations, the firmware is now able to select a higher bit rate for much better SQ. Audiophile Baroque is offline,...

    The functionality is there only because of OpenHome compliance. In practice, I suppose most people use the Idle Sleep feature.

    A few months ago I investigated this issue. DSD512 cannot be done via DoP for Luxman (or most of usual DSD512 DAC). You have to use native DSD for DSD512. However, that's only possible with Windows or a Linux kernel that supports Luxman D-10X....

    I don't think there is music recorded (instead of upsampled / upmodulated) in DSD512 other than those meant for testing. However, it should be possible to use Roon to upsample everything to DSD512 if you like the SQ this way, provided that the CPU...
