How to activate the Expert mode?

You need the 2.2 version (beta test) and it is an option in the settings of the Moment.

To be a beta tester you have to contact your vendor or request it on this forum hoping from someone from B&O to see your request.

New Beta build out.

What I notice is that if you have a Deezer HIFI account (as I have), and a lossless file is played from Deezer, you see an indication of "Deezer flac" on the now playing screen.

How did you manage to get the HIFI account on Deezer? Is it available in Sweden?

It took some clicking around to get to the right place at Deezer web. Will see if I can link that page.

  • Go into Deezer in your webbrowser.
  • Go to your account page.
  • Go to "manage my subscription"
  • See if you get the option to upgrade your subscription.

 

I remember I had to cllick around, but unsure how. I anyway have Deezer Elite status (Not namechanged yet)

Think I managed to upgrade through this link: http://dzr.fm/sonos

The above link works for the update, thanks. I’ll go for the one year subscription , enough to decide at no extra cost than using it .... hoepefully the Moment  will still be alive in 12 months

And yes the latest JB beta update handles displaying Hifi when detected, hopefully based on the track stream quality and not the subscription .....

It supposed to indicate track quality.

I found some Deezer tracks where "flac" was not shown. Note: Lossless is not distributed to other multiroom sources.

Don´t know, but in the Deezer HIFI thread I think there was talk about coming upgrade for the other devices.

It's remarkable and disappointing.

No (beta) software updates here since and before the latest official release. I'm wondering whether the members among us,  who do receive betasoftware, are still in contact are with Lyle.

Are you? What;s the point of releasing betasoftware without providing or asking for any feedback?

I don't get it.

Got corrected info. Moment DO provide FLAC lossless also to multiroom devices. You can also play Deezer Elite/HIFI over Chromecast to B&O Chromecast enabled devices.

Does the new betasoftware support Spotify Connect?

Any other audio-device (Core, Essence, A6, M5, etc) supports Spotify Connect, except for the BS Moment.

Dear Hiort,

I have a Deezer elite account - but I can not see the indication Deezer flac. Could you please tell me on which Beta-version is currently running on your system. I am 2.2.0.3722-2.2.12485.193548632 and no new update available.

Or could you write down some tracks (titles) to test the feature.

Thank you in advance

Cheers Beroli

Dear Hiort,

since my previous question is pending moderation, may I ask, on which beta version you are right now on SH and JB?

I have a deezer elite account and still running a beta on my BS-Moment

Could you recommend some tracks for testing?

Cheers Beroli

Well, I can cast from my Deezer app on my iPhone to e.g M5 but its not possible to know for sure that it is lossless.

I would say I do. Could be placebo Smile

I play over BL3;s with a BL11.

Sound is very clear and detailed.

Can you join your M5 to the Moment while the Moment is streaming a Deezer FLAC track?

Time for B&O to come with a final version soon!

Fix DLNA issues and Deezer HIFI that would be great!

I have send Deezer an request by mail and get an activation link by mail for subscribing Deezer HIFI. So on the Deezer site and account settings there where no information how to get an HIFI subscription.
