    Qobuz Lossless Streaming Service Thread

    Thanks for the reminder. I thinks I was grandfathered in at a lower monthly rate for a while, and forgot all about it.

    Qobuz Lossless Streaming Service Thread

    I'm not seeing this on my monthly Studio streaming payment, and I'm in the same US state. Could be only for downloads, but I can't imagine why. I also use PayPal for Tidal, to avoid a foreign transaction fee that showed up on my regular credit card years ago.

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    I'm still subscribing to Tidal and Qobuz, endlessly comparing. I've no interest in the other on-demand music streaming services. Have to admit though, I mostly just listen to four CD-quality FLAC streams from internet radio station Radio Paradise. They support MQA only for BlueOS at this time...

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Version 2.32.0.12 here. After I toggle Exclusive Mode on, the other two grey out and can't be changed. The solution for me was to first toggle Force Volume on, then toggle Exclusive Mode on. I don't use Passthrough because I've switched back to a Schiit DAC, so I left that toggled off.

    Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital Impression Thread

    Interesting. All I can suggest is to make sure Tidal has exclusive control of the sound in that same settings panel. Can't help beyond that.

    Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital Impression Thread

    The speaker icon at the lower right should be grayed out. If not, from the user menu at the upper left go to "Settings" > "Streaming", under "Sound" next to "Sound Output" click "(More settings)", and select "Force Volume".

    PONO - Neil Youngs portable hi-res music player

    All I can suggest is that you also ask in two more places: Audiophile Style has given refuge to the last remnants of the Pono forums here, and before that some of those folks also started a Facebook Group here.

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Type an "@" sign in front of "Davy Wentzler" and he's tagged like this: @thepiper92 After reporting your model and problem here, if he requests a log, then in the app open the side menu (the "hamburger menu"), and near the bottom of the list you'll find "Send log to developers".

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    That's not happening on my phone, but you can prevent your screen from turning off in UAPP settings > User interface > Always keep screen on.

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    It says some people can hear the difference and some people can't. And among those who can, some can only describe it in emotional terms. It doesn't mention MQA at all. They used actual 24/192 Hi Res files, like the kind one can stream or buy on Qobuz. (The tree falls in the forest thing was a...

    Qobuz Lossless Streaming Service Thread

    Technically that's a macron not an umlaut, but either way seems very unnecessary, at least for English speakers. "Audio nirvana", we get it. Maybe the pronunciation is more confusing in French? The developer is French. (On the other hand, Americans often say "Zendaya" wrong the other way round...

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    Not a direct comparison to Tidal, but the owner of another forum tested Apple Music on an iPhone and a Mac Mini, and got some disappointing results: Apple Music's Lossless and Hi-Res Mess

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    And here's an academic study that shows some people can't hear any difference, while others can. Among those who can, many are able to describe it only in emotional terms. http://www.doc.gold.ac.uk/~mas03dm/papers/SoundQuality_WilliamsonSouthMullensiefen_ICMPC2014.pdf I can hear it well, but...

    Tidal Lossless Streaming

    When I play software decoded MQA though non-MQA Schiit DACs it sounds good to me, often the same as equivalent hi-res streaming from Qobuz.
