Qobuz 24bit Sublime+ coming in May

First attempt crashed at end of first track, second time played ok but app not updating playing display

Hmm, unfortunately seems gapless won't work in this manner either.  A real annoyance if the only way to do so is via USB or NAS - perhaps something could be tweaked in software on the Audirvana side.

Will need to test via Airplay from Apple Music - that may work gapless with SQ compromise.  I just hope Airplay 2 might allow HD audio as well as multiroom .

All I can say is that I have been using Audirvana Plus for the last 10 days with my Naim MuSo and I have never detected any dropouts etc, but I get at least 2 per hour using the Naim app.

 

I'm currently trying Audirvana Plus with Qobuz sublime+, and to my ears it sound better than using Google Chromecast Audio that I have been using for more than a year now !. Two  caviates though; one it changes FLAC into Wav (and I am not sure if that matters) the more important one is that it needs my Mac on all the time which is impractical (I am using their Remote+ from the iPAd to control it )

for one My Naim Uniti2 shows the Song name and Bit rate on the screen as if I am plying from NAS , Happy Days

I tried a few things yesterday and thought they may have sounded better than via NAS or USB but need to do a better comparison when it's quieter at home!

Also, out of interest has anyone found Qobuz downloads are much slower than they were a few months ago - seems to take ages to download HD to my iPad.

I don't really like the version 4 app as much as version 3 - it seems more buggy, for example I often have issues with a stream starting via Chromecase and somehow end up with audio over Chromecast and coming from the phone.  Their search seems much worse too as though it's only searching for a few characters not all.

+1 Having discovered that Audirvarna Plus v3.1.4 "just works" with Mu-So. Although the Mu-So doesn't have a screen you can see the current track playing in the Naim App (which is slightly ironic). I've streamed Qobuz at up to 24/192 kHz from an iMac over Wi-Fi (Mu-So is wired).

From the screenshot below, it looks as though Audirvana is upscaling the original FLAC 16/44.1 kHz to 24 bits.

Audrivana to Mu-So
