What are you thoughts about BluOS, if you didn’t have roon would it be a good app? Can you queue tracks from different sources into a current playing queue? Does it have features like “Play Next” and “Add to Queue” from streaming sources (Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer etc) as well as Upnp sources?
I’m currently looking at replacing my Cambridge CXNv2 with a new streamer because I’ve started getting dropouts from Qobuz and Tidal Connect, sometimes 3 or 4 times while listening to an album.
My HiFi store very kindly lent me a Arcam ST60 which sounded amazing but the app was just too basic. The Arcam worked perfectly with roon but I’m still not sure I want to be paying for roon forever. Also, I was happy to find the Arcam didn’t drop out during my testing but I couldn’t commit to it because the app was so featureless.
I’m thinking about getting the NAD C 658 or using the C 700 as a preamp. Any thoughts on these streamers?
