Guys, am I right to assume you are not using the various proxy server solutions for Qobuz with Naim streamers etc because of the outstanding issues of pushed UPnP gapless on the new Naim streaming architectures.. or is it you don’t really want the added hassle / inconvieience of using a proxy server like a NAS or RPi?
Certainly Qobuz works wonderfully well using BubbleUPnP Server on the original Naim streaming platforms... and it transcodes to PCM for that extra UPnP SQ boost.
Although I have some RaspberryPis and have had a dabble it's not been 100% successful - especially with respect to gapless on the newer streamers. I do intend to revisit as I may well use Asset on the RPi which worked well a few weeks ago.
I think this post is largely due to the fact that Qobuz say they've fixed Chromecast bugs in the release info for iOS, so I was hopeful that updating the app on my iPhone X might alleviate the issue with tracks restarting after playing for 2-3 secs which I never experienced with the Atom I had briefly or the Nova until a Qobuz update earlier this year (I have at least one separate thread on that).
The problem persists and is very odd as I do feel my network should be up to the job of streaming HD either from the phone over wifi to a wired streamer, or from the internet - naturally I cannot entirely discount network issues but I think my network is well above average for domestic installations though undeniably not 'cutting edge'.
Not only has the track repeating not been fixed (is it the Nova's software?), but this was stuttering so badly last night I was surprised - I could only do limited testing late without annoying the rest of the family who were tucked up in bed.
I have updated the Google Home app too in case there's a more stable Chromecast implementation for iOS.
So, while I'm more than happy to try the RPi again, it would be nice with a streamer costing £4,000-£20,000 in the examples above, if we could actually use Qobuz as intended by Naim, or I have to conclude that Chromecast is not just up to the job with Naim kit.
As I tend to use my iPhone X when in the car or at work with the Qobuz app, again it would be nice if this just worked seamlessly when I return home in the evening with the same device.
