    Re: Tidal versus Quobuz

    I'm still using Tital and Qobuz daily. Lately I've been playing with upsampling from both to 32bit 192kHz if possible with the i7 transporter. My main complaint about Tital at least as far as their web site is concerned is I always feel like I'm walked into the wrong neighborhood when I jump into it. Qobuz has such a good classical selection that I find it hard to give up on Qobuz. And the HiRez sound it very good. On my system I can't say MQA is leaps and bounds better than my simple upsampling so far. I have Amazon Prime but until I can run it on Room or with the Lumin I'm just not going to look into it.

    You may use AirPlay to play Amazon Music on an iOS device to Lumin. This is why we released Firmware 11.7 to improve AirPlay.

    Since you like MQA sound, do you happen to like SDLY2 filter of your K-01X?

    Although I never tested this scenario, I guess this should be normal depending on your region and cellular service coverage and your smartphone, since cellular data service is far from perfect. Try downgrading the audio quality in the corresponding app when you are in a vehicle. Or try Spotify instead.

    Peter, I only use the K-01x to play CD's & SACD's but I do believe I use the SDLY2 filter setting. For streaming and hi-res downloads I have my Aurender N10 feeding my Berkeley MQA DAC.

    Thanks for the information Peter. I may look into that.

    Re: Tidal versus Quobuz

    Is anyone successfully streaming Qobuz UPnP from a Mac (10.14)? I'm about ready to look beyond this D2. Audirvana won't run well either, it runs a little. Qobuz not at all. The only Mac desktop software I find that will stream at all (UPnP) is Linn Kazoo. Put another way, Linn fires up 100% every time, nothing else will.

    Re: Tidal versus Quobuz

    Every time I get on this sub forum I feel like I'm a dinosaur in the twilight zone. I have so much to learn and so much ground to make up. I know this is all basic computer 101 for people who were born in the '80s or later. Heck, I don't know a megabyte from a UPnP. All I know is what my ears like. And I know how to tickle them in an analog way. But when it comes to computer logic, basic and intermediate computer operations, digital, and streaming, I'm lost. I'd love to learn more about it. But I don't even know where to start. The terminology alone is daunting. Sometimes I feel like I'm staring up at Mt. Everest. Me thinks I was born about 30 years too early.
