Any development in Qobuz connection?


#1

I saw that the last post on this topic is two years old and i wonder if anything happened since then. I would love to use Qobuz with my directstream!goofy-heart_gif

The most recent Bridge II update added Qobuz connectivity using the MConnect (or is it MControl?) app.

Thanks!

@Louv my favorite app streaming Qobuz to Bridge ll is BubbleUpnp (Android). Also living in the Netherlands and using Qobuz/Bubble/Bridge II since a long time, always working like a charm.

Installing mconnect was easy, logging into Tidal & Qobuz was easy, and the app found the Bridge without any problem.

help me out, do I need an interface like Roon?

Roon plays my library.

Running a server there is no need for an interface like Roon, mconnectControl will show you server(s) instantly, you can browse and play your local stored files straight from there:

BubbleUpnp will show your server(s) in ‘Local and Cloud’:

For some reason mControl sees one of my NAS, but not the one with music. I will have to investigate.

Also so it looks like the mControl app doesn’t send MQA files to my Bridge. I selected an album 9n the Tidal Masters section and the Bridge shows that an AAC file is playing. Though it is 24 bit rather than 16.

Still useful to to be able to play Qobuz through the Bridge.

Hi,

mconnect control HD installed on an iPad to stream Qobuz in Hi Rez on DS Jr works very well with the latest version of the bridge 3.4.5 and red cloud. I chose the DS especially for this.

there is also bubbleupnp to stream to stream Qobuz hires, probably the best app on Android.

No need for any other server.

I hope now that Psaudio and mconnect will (continue to) integrate Qobuz in all future developments, if not I will have to look for another dac :slight_smile:

Bubble UPnP Server running on a NAS or a computer in the network is another option to use Qobuz. I have been using this setup with Kazoo and my own control point without any glitches. It supports the highest Qobuz resolution (up to 192/24). And I don‘t need to use MConnect with it‘s dreadful user interface. Another advantage is, that the setup does not need any Qobuz support from the Bridge.

And by the way: I cannot recognize anything in the Bridge, that communicates with Qobuz. With the MConnect setup, any internet communication is managed through the MConnect app with local streaming from my iPad to the bridge.

@blackicehurts ; try if 8player can see both your servers to narrow your investigation. Free download & install from the Appstore and you can select Bridge II to stream, even HiRes :wink:

The Bridge doesn’t need any Qobuz support at all, it plays everything (up to specs) you throw at it. The only ‘communication’ is receiving the audiostream. Control points like mconnectControl, BubbleUpnp etc. deliver this stream straight from your router or server to the Bridge without passing your tablet, i-Pad or phone. The control points are the ones in need to support Qobuz.
