Description Of Issue

I’m looking at the new Melody Gardot album, Sunset in the Blue, and it reads 96/24 in the library added from Qobuz, but when I hit play, it shows both in the quality info and on my DAC LCD as 44.1. See screenshot.

Might just be a metadata issue, not sure. I haven’t tried direct from Qobuz yet but can do that and report back.

Great album by the way, superb recording. I don’t think I’m missing much here at 44.1, just thought it was weird.

Same thing for me.

It’s 96 MQA in Tidal and it is really well produced…

There seems indeed to be an issue at Qobuz’s side.

I bought the album and the download plays 96kHz/24-bit (except for last track)

Selecting the high-res streaming version does play in 44kHz/16-bit

Contacting Qobuz support is recommended.
