    My Switch from Tidal to Qobuz (Roon content as well)

    I am keeping Tidal in addition to Qobuz, mainly because of the Family account and I get a military discount.

    Re: My Switch from Tidal to Qobuz (Roon content as well)

    I just downloaded over 1800 songs from Qobuz to our Aurender (37 minutes - 940 Mbps connection). Aurender and Qobuz are met for one another. Amazing quality on Qobuz/Aurender playback - not as good as my SACDs on the Luxman, but ....

    I didn't find MQA satisfying with Tidal. So, that's one reason why we dropped Tidal. I have ordered a MQA album ("The Raven" by Rebecca Pidgeon) though to test MQA without streaming. We'll see in a week (import CD) or so if it beats SACDS, etc.
    Sincerely,

    Joe

    I was thinking of giving Qobuz a go, my DAC isn't MQA and I'm interested in hearing what the higher rez sounds like from them. They don't quite seem to have their act together, I would like to get the $15.00 but when it asks for my payment info it says I will be charged $21.95 after the trial. I was trying to get clarification on the tiers and was told they oonly have two now, Studio Premier and I think the one where you get the purchase discounts.

    I listen to a lot of Rock and wonder how qobuz is on that.

    I'm also tired of my albums in favorites disappearing from Tidal and how they only show a hand full of new releases a week when there has to be hundreds.

    I suspect I will find none are "just rifht" lol

    Re: My Switch from Tidal to Qobuz (Roon content as well)

    I've been a Qobuz subscriber for three years most of which was at the higher Euro conversion rate with and EU account and to me the better sound quality was worth the extra cost. I switched to a US account after giving them about six months to get things up and running smoothly. I am now locked into at least the next year at $12.99 a month but was paying $25 before that. Even at $21.95 to me it would be worth it so do the free trial and see what you think. On your missing Tidal albums sometimes if you do a new search they will still be there because when the new rights agreements are signed sometimes the catalog numbers get changed. You might not find all of them but you might find some of them.

    My thoughts exactly. Sounds like a hardware issue not a Qobuz issue.

    Its a qubuz deal. These are technical integrators performing software installation and they say Qobuz is full of packets that operated independently that take up space and resources. This is real world feedback. Probably a good dose of tracking crap. Software analyzing your computer. Why else would it be so inexpensive. Where do you think they get their money. HAAAAAA, you thought you had software that only steamed music. Hahaaaaaaaaaaa

    Is your "Server" running the desktop version of Qobuz? As the API version has been running flawlessly on the $500 Aries Mini for over three years.
