Without trying to be argumentative, what exactly makes a given track an audiophile track?

It just a list of tracks that have great SQ, my option - the word “audiophile” was just chosen in lack of better. But if you have a better wording!

I would call it a playlist you like. Someone else may not like it at all. Taste in music varies greatly.

So I have questions, what about tracks used for testing, or are these supposed to be enjoyable as well? Obviously I’m not suggesting a well recorded 12 KHz test tone. I do have tracks I listen to new gear with because they’re well recorded, and I know them well. Some are far from my favourites musically

Both :slight_smile:

I’ve always loved the sound of the vocals on this, I think it’s a great recording:

So far I have been playing Redi Hasa (didn’t know him) and Béla Fleck from your list (whole albums) and I like them much, thank you!
As you wrote suggestions are welcome, here is one:
Hummingbird, last track
A well recorded jazz and bluegrass mix with Helge Lien and Knut Hem on dobro and piano, which I enjoy listening.

This is a playlist I use when in the mood for listening to high quality records.
Maybe you can get some additional ideas for an already pretty interesting playlist.

Hey There!
I like quite a few of the tracks from your Playlist and will add them to my “Reference” list, so thanks!

Of corse are these playlists highly subjective, who wants to listen to a Song that doesnt resonate somehow, regardless of the recording quality?

One question : what is the best way to get these qobuz playlists opened andplayed in roon?

You just “heart” the playlist in your Qobuz PC or Mac Version, and then they will appear in Roon under My Stuff/Playlists. You need to have logged in to Qobuz in Roon.

ok, thats what i was doin. Just thought there might be a better way to get the playlist directly played in roon. anyways the detour over the qobus app is not too bad. :sunglasses:

Just save a local copy in Roon.
