    Haven’t tried Qobuz yet, must give them a go.
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    I liked Qobuz when I trialled it - it also works well with LMS.
    I'm only using Tidal at the moment because of the free 3 month trial.

    I’m a Roon fanboy nowadays, and it’s the Tidal/ Qobuz integration that got me hooked on it.
    Make playlists, fav albums etc no different to your own locally stored music files.

    Controlled from a tablet from your favourite listening chair, it’s a wee bit fab.
    I have hifi n stuff.

    Yeah, thanks again Chris, that will be my first port of call - I've done a bit of reading on it, looks good. I'm supposed to be moving shortly, so will probably hold fire on anything until I've decided what kit is going to go where in the new house.

    There is a minor downside to using LMS - the Tidal and Qobuz apps do not have active integration with the content providers.
    The fix is you need to log in via the web interface on your computer and add or remove stuff - artists, albums playlists, whatever.
    Once added you can access the new content via LMS using the relevant app.

    I'm old school and play albums, so I'm still trying to work out wtf a playlist is for

    Latest rumour is that Amazon may launch a high rez (probably 24/96) service this year sometime. If they manage to offer this at a reasonable cost this could be a knock out blow for players such as Tidal etc.
    Source: Tidal/Roon
    DAC: Metrum HEX, Chevron Paradox

    Pre: LDR
    Amp: Radford Revival STA25 V,
    Sugden Masterclass 2018 spec
    Speakers: Tannoy Berkeley & Eaton, Kudos Cardea

    Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

    Recently cancelled Tidal after doing comparisons and Qobuz won out every time, to my ears, at every bitrate even 16/44.

    Qobuz 24/192 version of Allman Brothers at the Filmore is terrific, best live record experience I've heard.
    I found the reverse when I did that test a couple of years ago now. Maybe more... maybe something has changed.

    The TIDAL mobile app is excellent. The Windows app much less so.

    But the more recent tailored to your tastes TIDAL playlists are surprisingly really friggin' good I have found. Or when an album ends it carries on playing similar stuff and that's great too.

    If you want the best from Queerbuz it looks expensive.

    Tbh i dont think sound wise there is much between them when i ran them side by side in audirvana.
    Audirvana is a joke on Windows. It just doesn't work it's so full of bugs.

    That's a warning - in no way pay for Windows Audirvana without trying the demo and you will see what I mean.
