Deezer and other inept streaming squeezebox bumbling


#21

I keep it going because the kids prefer the playlist features on Napster to those on Tidal. But I use Tidal because of the lossless option and Roon integration.

So yeah, I spend £30/month on streaming :man_facepalming:

Shame the Nagra hasn’t got a digital input.


#23

Yes, very much this :frowning_face:

All DACs sound the same: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELE-EL-D01-MIN-IUSB-HIFI-DAC-SOUND-Audio-CARD-PCM2704-BOARD-ELNA-Capacitor-bla/262545313416?hash=item3d20eb8e88:g:Wp8AAOSwRgJXlrIW

£10.77 And the seller’s called “Hamworker” - it’s a good omen I tell you :ok_hand:


#25

It’s got to be worth a punt.


#26

It’ll succeed or fail depending how well it isolates the audio circuits from power supply noise. At the price it’s not a huge gamble.


#27

Hmmmm, it seems that the ‘Deezer Hifi’ option won’t work on the SB apparently, it only works at 320kb.

I wonder if I get full fat FLAC with Tidal? Hmmmmm…


#28

I think you do, although I can’t test it


#29

I’ll sign up for the free month, and see how it goes…


#30

Tidal is still catching up with Spotify library, not sure if Sinitta’s latest is on there yet :smile:


#31

Bit of a deal breaker that…

Lms and ickstream certainly uses the flac source, I assume that can be sent to the the squeeze box.
