I have a dedicated 2-PC installation with JPLAY FEMTO / WS2003/ AO running well at 1000Hz DAC Link. I use Arcam MusicLife remote app (works ok but can’t get library images).

I am interested in the Qobuz Hi-Res streaming service but don’t understand if/how it will work with JPLAY FEMTO. I see the JPLAY manual mentions Roon/Qobuz but I don’t see how it works.

With my limited knowledge it would be very helpful to hear from anyone who has Qobuz Hi-Res working with JPLAY FEMTO and the steps needed to achieve this.

Qobuz with JPLAY FEMTO is possible via:

a) Bubble UPnP on Android

B) mConnect on iOS

1/ I have BubbleUPnP on Android
2/ I've subscribed to Qbus
3/ I'm running JPLAY FEMTO on dualPC

Yet I don't know how to play Qbus streamed music with JPLAY FEMTO on my stereo setup. Please teach me.

P.S. Got it. Able to play up to CD quality, not sure how to get hi-res. Pay more?

Got that too. For $5 over CD quality, you get hi-res.

I'd always been playing from local disks, so this is my very first time streaming experience. Very nice!

Playing via JPLAY FEMTO up to 24/192 now, sounding pretty darn good without the burden of storage. Hats off again and again to Marcin and JPLAY Team.

Yes, you need a Sublime plan for hi-rez Qobuz streams

Good to hear  you got it working

@alain. When making this comparison, where do you store downloaded files - on the AudioPC or on a NAS?

How do they compare to local files? My guess is almost the same.

Sorry, I was in travel...

Files are on NAS. The differences are big: clarity, space ...

Good to hear.  Apparently you've taken good care of LAN and music servers.

Hello,this is my first post and I'm new to JPLAY (using the trial version) and excited to test it out.  Do I need 3rd party software to playback for Qoboz and from my NAS?  When I read about Bubble it says for Android, but I'm using a Windows 10 PC and no Android devices.

 

I see JPLAYmini was installed with JPLAY Femto, but it is just a notepad type player and want something a little sleeker to use, I also have an old license  for JRiver, but it is at least 3 or 4 versions old at this time and have not insalled it yet (this is a new PC build) and I would like to try something else at this point, but if it will work with JPlay Femto clock I can use that ... but is there a better alternative?

 

I read the manual, but I don't feel it covers this well, so my 3 questions are:

 

1. Do I need 3rd party software to playback for Qoboz and from my NAS? 

 

2. When I read about Bubble it says for Android, but I'm using a Windows 10 PC and no Android devices can Bubble still be used or is there a better option for Windows?

 

3. During the installation I input the wrong folder of where my music is stored, how can I direct JPLAY to the correct folder as I did not see that in the JPLAYsettings options?

 

My setup is:

 

Windows 10 PC (USB out to) > McIntosh D100 DAC (USB in) > McIntosh C220 Preamp (RCA out) > Decware Taboo MK II Amplifier (RCA in) > Omega Super 7 Loudspeakers.  I'm using a WD MyCloud NAS for music and video storage and Samsung 65" HDTV used as a monitor.

 

Thanks  in advance for yout time!

 

p.s. I may try Roon in the future, but I want to buy JPLAY first if I like it and can't afford both at one time.

Hello and  welcome, 

 

1. A remote app is required and for Qobuz only these 2 work: Bubble UPnP (Android) & mconnect (iOS). It is possible to use Qobuz with Kazoo on Windows, but it's a bit complicated. The procedure is explained in ths article: https://www.hifizine...e-raspberry-pi/

 

3. The easiest way is to reinstall JPLAY

 

Regards, 

Marcin
