Re: Mconnect PlayerHD v Cadence

I had that problem on my iPad, which is quite old, but no issues at all on my iPhone.

Re: Qobuz on Cyrus

Yes you can stream all the hi rez files. As I mentioned previously, I suggest mconnect as interface, it works great on an iPhone.

Re: Qobuz on Cyrus

I have done some testing with mconnectHD on my iPad but I found it stops playing when I’m switching apps. Now I downloaded the app for the iPhone, and I found this to be even better than the one for the iPad. The iPad one has too much info one screen, the iPhone version is very slick and easy to nav...

Re: Qobuz v Tidal

Joe, thanks for the comment, that’s a relief!

Hifihelp: so far I have added 45 hir res cds on my favorites files, so for me there is enough hi res on Qobuz. I guess it depends on your taste of music, so far it fits mine very well and I have no regret to have bought the subscription.

Re: Qobuz v Tidal

I just ended my Tidal subscription, because Cyrus cannot convert their hi rez MQA format. I had my stream x2 upgraded, cost me nothing and so far it is perfectly stable. Listen for hours, no single drop in data. Qobuz simply allows to stream in hi rez, of course you have to invest in the one year su...

Re: Qobuz!

Hi Clive,
As I mentioned in my other post, it’s working perfectly, but I have the Hi Rez yearly subscription.
Qobuz is also workinfine on my iPhone and iPad so I have no complaints.
Thanks

Re: Qobuz on Cyrus

Just got my upgraded Stream X2 and connected it. As I mentioned in my separate post on the Soundkey, I treated myself to the Qobuz Hi Rez subscription, so I logged in and could see my purchased albums immediately. Also the hi rez files stream perfectly. The new Cadence app shows the bit rates and sa...

Qobuz hi rez and soundkey

Just bought the Qobuz hi rez subscription (and cancelled Tidal). I installed the Qobuz app on the iPhone and iPad, and connected my Soundkey- Sennheiser and guess what: I can listen in hi rez format while streaming! Just make sure that streaming in settings is correct, the app will automatically det...

Re: Cyrus - Micro DAC on Kickstarter...

I just compared the direct sound from the iPhone head phone jack to the Soundkey. The difference is so obvious, it will be the same with listening to MP3 files. Of course the end result may not be the same level, but the difference between the 2 connections should be easy to distinguish.

Re: Preamp Recommendations

I changed from Cyrus 8, which I used as dac/pre to dac xp+ long time ago, it’s a no-brainer.
DAC xp sig will be even better.

Re: Cyrus - Micro DAC on Kickstarter...

Just received my Soundkey, ordered at Hi Fi Studio Number One in Utrecht. Connected it to the IPhone camera kit, connected my Sennheiser, put on Tidal (HiFi subscription); WAUW :P What a difference with the iPhone sound! The iPhone sounds very dull and muffled compared to the Soundkey. I don’t under...

Re: Christmas present for SWMBO

Why didn’t I think of this before? Just installed Cadence on my wife’s smartphone and showed her how it works.
The radio on the Stream X2 sounds so much better than the Radio via the digital TV set top box, now it’s easy for her to use it.

No money spend AND a happy wife! 8)

Re: Christmas present for SWMBO

Every time I buy something for my stereo, my wife says “no more for the next 10 years!”. So I was in big trouble this year when I bought the Stream X2 second hand. Luckily, she could hear the difference in the internet radio compared to the digital radio of our satellite tv/radio. However, I must sa...
