    I got my invitation to apply as a Beta tester for Qobuz today. I filled out the form. Hope to be selected. I assume this means we are closer to a real launch.

    Well signed up for the beta and got a response, Looks like there are too many people of my age group in the beta. LOL,

    SO it notes

    "Have no fear - we are adding additional beta testers every day, and we should get everyone on board by mid-February. As an early invitee, you have first priority on our waiting list."

    Re: Qubuz in the USA is just around the corner.

    Same for me. I responded they should reconsider as they have a few issues that bother me.

    Does anyone else have issues with hang ups. I have a hard time streaming high rez files. I even have problems saving to my offline library where they play without issue. Some songs just hang up saving.

    Files do seem to sound better after going to the offline library. I think. Not 100% sure. I wonder if its un-compressing the FLAC files . I have determined FLAC does not sound as good as WAV on my system.

    Re: Qubuz in the USA is just around the corner.

    Has run smooth as silk for me for over a year and a half with no hangups or stoppages unlike the other service.

    Re: Qubuz in the USA is just around the corner.

    Maybe its my server. It is low power and not designed to upsample. Maybe I am lacking computing power to process the high rez streams.
