    Default Deezer question

    Hi all.

    Just a little question. Can I download tracks from Deezer?

    It says it downloads tracks to your PC but I can't find where the tracks are placed so I can play them via my Pi/RPI HDD.

    Are they only for playback in Deezer?

    Thanks

    Yup you need to use deezer.. you can find them or change the storage location though. In app, settings, them tap app then disc storage change i think. There are programs that will record them for you etc so you can have them yourself.

    Thanks Grant.

    I can't seem to find the file location option at all... wonder if it's recently changed?

    I don't know if this has already been mentioned somewhere, but Deezer is currently offering 3 months for 99p.

    signed up for the 3 months.. cancelled tidal before they charged me. still got my spotify tho.

    dunno what the sound rate is but it sounds very good on headphones, and they seem to have a decent selection. Not so sure about the app layout yet.

    Bit rate is 320kbps; sounds pretty good to me via Airplay and Moode Player.

    its louder than spotify and about same level as tidal. sometimes think they do this to help it sound better for iphones etc, but can make it a little rough in places. still, Ive 3 months to play with it, all for 99p.. nice find John

    Been doing some A,B,C's with spotify premium and tidal hifi as I still have all 3, and this time running through the hifi. Deezer fails the test as its the worst of the 3 by a fair bit alas. A tad rough, or bright maybe is a better point to make for me. surprised its so obvious here and no so much on headphones. as i felt, its set up more for phone use i think

    Grant, you could always try some of the eq settings to try and tame the brightness. I had a listen last night and thought the same, going to have a play with eq next time I listen. Still a bargain for 99p
