Roon redux


#181

I thought cheap way to access high res version.

Redbook sounds fine.


#182

You can use it if available, I just would spend any money on anything to do with it.


#183

If it doesn’t have an mqa decoder you need to software decode, so you get 96khz.


#184

The irony being that it’ll happily play your non MQA 192 & 384 files. :rofl:

Even more reason to despise MQA and what it stands for (DRM and control)


#185

I use tidal via Logitech media server so don’t even get to soft decode it.


#186

You must feel like you’re missing out horribly. :rofl:


#187

Have you tried Qobuz through Roon? I am on 30 days free trial at present. No MQA just hi res if that’s what you’re after?

#189

I did try it years ago. It would depend on the range of music. I don’t listen to much classical.


#190

I’ve got Qobuz and TIDAL atm, using the Qobuz trial. I will cancel my TIDAL subscription when the Qobuz trial runs out because MQA and Jay-feckin’-Z. I’ll pay for monthly access to Qobuz instead.


#191

Still not decided that yet but edging that way the more i use it. The music selection available is the deciding thing but all seems good so far. Only upsides so far:sunglasses:!


#192

What happens to tne Tidal albums added to your Roon library ?


#193

It appears that Roon has sorted them out on Quboz also. I had issues with all sorts of random shite from TIDAL turning up in my library for reasons that escape me. Hopefully that will feck off too when I cancel TIDAL.


#194

They just disappear from your library when you remove your account.


#195

Did you enable Tidal collections in Roon, or if you’d liked individual songs in Tidal it will add the whole album it’s associated with.


#196

There are library management systems to transfer playlists and albums, which I used to move the family playlists especially. Good that Roon does it for you.


#197

No. Just oodles of random shit turned up in my library after either a TIDAL or Roon update. TBH some of it has been OK as I’ve listened to bits and pieces of it. Some of it is tedious bollocks though that I would never dream of listening to. It also happened on my phone where another load of shite was downloaded to the phone for offline listening.For instance my phone lists A/B Til Infinity by Egyptrixx under recent activity. I know that I would actively avoid this kind of thing so have no clue where it came from. There are loads of similar things under recent activity that are 1,000,000 miles from anything I would attempt via headphones.


#198

LOL, absolutely nothing to do with beer then.


#199

Qobuz remembered I ahd been on before so had to pay.

Trying monthly

Sadly, I am currently unable to imbibe without putting myself in danger of catastrophic explosions. It may well be down to chronic ineptitude though.
