Cyrus Stream x2- Apple music

Postby Odjohnson » Mon Aug 19, 2019 4:13 pm

Hi all, forgive if this has been answered already, but thinking of getting one of these. My streaming services is Apple lossless.

Was wandering if I could could stream that through the X2, I know it is possible for Tidal and Now Quboz, but seen nothing that definitively says that it will stream Apple Music.

Can come one answer this before I take the plunge please.

Nope, sorry.
If you're buying second hand be aware that it needs the latest firmware to run Tidal and Qobuz and most dealers charge for it.

i think the comment is to do with connecting an apple device via front usb, not running apple music internally

Thanks for the reply guys. The question is about whether it is possible to play Apple Music internally in the same way as Quboz & Tidal

I currently play by Bluetoothing the signal from an IPAD through Audioengine B1 receiver with an optical out going into pre Dac qx.

Just wandering if there was a better way, it is close to CD quality but keep thinking there is a better way.
