In Reply to: RE: Qobuz now offers full hi-rez streaming posted by PAR on May 18, 2017 at 18:09:25
And if so, is the new 'player' a resource hog?
Recall with NAXOS offered a 'hi rez' streaming service ClassicsOnlineHD it used a plug-in (OraStream?) that was a bit of a resource hog.
And, of course, the moment I decide to go to LMS and the Raspberry Pi for streaming to my favorite DAC/Headphone Amp, all of the streaming services go Hi Rez which I am guessing will not be supported by LMS and the puny processing power of a Raspberry Pi (just guessing though).
Not yet as I am still in Munich with only a phone to communicate with. I am considering it but I am little cynical about hi-rez to start anyway . I have lived with some form of it since the turn of the century but feel that my real gains have come from just getting redbook to perform better (after all it forms most of my music collection).
I intend to buy and download a hi-rez album or two from Qobuz which wlll allow me to stream them without Sublime+ and then compare to the standard CD stream. That should make my mind up.
As for resources I have an 80Mb/s line and dedicated music computer running the Qobuz app so I hope it will not be an issue. Only a trial will reveal if I am right.
