Good episode, guys.  Interesting topic, good discussion, moved right along.  Thanks.

Henrik mentioned an iOS app used to measure spl and frequency response in a room.  I think he said "AudioTools" - is this the app?

He said if he doesn’t have his laptop, yes that is the app he uses! Otherwise he uses something called REW.

Hope that helps? Big Smile

For now i have a tidal subscription, but when that expires i will switch to qobuz because it has a better catalogue for electronic and jazz imo.

At the moment tidal and qobuz are the only streaming services roon supports btw.

Qobuz and Tidal.
About  to cancel Tidal as they seem to be replacing a lot of their catalog with MQA versions and I am not a fan. 
Controlled through either Roon or Lumin or a combination of both.

Odd that I seem to be the only Apple Music subscriber here. I routinely stream from Apple Music to a) Beoplay A8; b) AEx gen 2 connected to B&O gear downstream; c) ATV 4K connected to B&O gear downstream. iOS and Mac and Airplay 2. What I may sacrifice in ultra-hi-rez I gain in convenience. It just works. (And like Willy it’s been some time since I’ve heard 17khz 😧. I don’t miss what I can’t hear.)

That said, I’d love to have modern, end-to-end B&O system that was equally convenient, or more so. Roon integration sounds like the smart play. A streamer with 2.1 WISA, with an upgrade option to 5.1 or 7.1. Sell me some new WISA speakers, so I can start with a dedicated music system, then upgrade to HT on my own time. This shouldn’t be difficult, but I can’t figure out how with today’s product line-up.

Or...I may just wait for Apple to integrate a next-gen Apple TV with Homepods of various configurations to deliver wireless 7-channel Atmos out of the box. Let’s see who gets there first.

I use Deezer, because of the B&O app.

In the early days of music streaming services I used WiMP/320 (WiMP later became Tidal).

That was before Essence MK2 and co - back then I used the AirPort Express and after that my Playmaker connected to my ML-audiomaster to pipe, what I airplayed into my ML network.

When WiMP started offering lossless streams I changed to that. However I did not notice such an approvement that I wanted to keep it (and pay more).

I did not like the move to Tidal, when that came about....,too much monkey business there.

Therefore I started using Spotify/320 - I had noticed that Spotify was the only service, that offers gapless playback, which - as the album listener I am - I definitely priorizise.

After getting my Essence MK2 shortly after launch, I noticed that Spotify integrated quite well with my then new BV’s (the V1, Avant 55 1st gen).

So I sticked to Spotify and did not change to Deezer - although I might give the losless version of that a try some day.

So - to answer the question:

I use Spotify/320 and I am quite happy with it ;-)

 

P.S. I have quite a lot of CD’s still (some are ripped - some as FLAC and from the ‘early days of lesser insight’ some in MP3/192).

Occasionally I play a CD, but I only buy CD’s for something that is not available on Spotify.

Since my CD4500 and both of my Bluray player can play CD’s (in the NL network), I absolutely see no need for CD support on a ‘new’ audiosystem, should there be any.

Honestly, I see no need for a ‘new’ audiosystem - I might change from Essence MK2 as my main source device to the Core some day (all controlled by several iPads with the Bang & Olufsen app/Spotify app around the house as well as the beoremotes).


As for socalled ‘higres’, I don’t care much - the 16/44, CD-specs are all I need, all that my setup can handle, and certainly good enough for my hearing and listening surroundings (the noice floor there).

And after all, there is very little content, that was recorded highres right from the start. The higher b/kHz is basicly usefull for processing in the mixing and mastering stage.

Offering music today in a highres container is pretty much just a good idea from the record companies to earn more money.

(I care more for wellrecorded music mastered with a high DR level).

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I am amazed not more of you are on Deezer because of B&O, but that kinda shows where the should be heading: more streaming service agnostic Big Smile
