    That's good news to know that if tidal goes, there may be alternatives.

    Although Roon stands on it's own too.

    I downloaded the app but it says I can only play samples because it’s not available in my country?!?
  3. Mediahound
    Maybe it's not yet available in the USA, just planned.

    I've been testing out upsampling in roon to 768khz and found out that i prefer to leave it off and send pure 44.1khz to the ADI2 so that can do its own thing instead. It sounds a bit softer upsampled and i started to turn up the volume more to try to compensate. Softening of the treble and losing a bit of impact was all i noticed. Any one else have a similar experience?

    Does anyone know if you can run a Nucleus directly into a DAC not roon ready? No device drivers are needed?
  7. koven Contributor
    Yes, via USB directly to DAC works.

    Thank you.

    Is the plus version worth the $1100 price difference? All I see different is the upgrade from an i-3 dual core to an i-7 dual core and 4 gigs of RAM. Seems awfully expensive upgrade.

    Depends if you plan to use DSD upsampling. i3 may be fine up to DSD64 but could struggle beyond that.

    Anyone the free Qobuz trial?
  11. bfreedma
    I am - the integration with Roon works as expected. Unfortunately, the Qobuz library just doesn't line up well with my preferences, so will be dropping it and sticking with Tidal.

    Thank you for your input.
    I've been hesitant to try the free Qobuz trial as I don't want to cause any bad reaction to my Roon + Tidal library.
    I'm very happy with both right now, so I think I'll stay right where I am.

    Glad to help.

    I don’t think there is much/any chance that the Qobuz trial would impact your existing library, so if you’re curious, give it a go. The setup is the same as Tidal - just enter your account and password. As long as you don’t mark anything from Qobuz as the preferred version of content, it should leave no footprint.

    Maybe I'll give it a try...maybe.

    Which music did you find missing in Qobuz?
