@4367 I turn off things I dont use on the D1/2 very often. while I predominantly run Roon to stream to my 3 Lumin’s my wife prefers Spotify from her desktop and this works perfectly.
The nice thing about the Lumin’s is that you can just start a stream from another source and it will kill the other one playing with no drama… thats a huge plus in my house as I can just override what my left playing without having to find the source and stop it.
T2 is a big step up compared to D2. If you can, it will make you happy.
MQA you should decide for with your own ears and not based on some peoples writing.
I use Tidal because they serve my music taste more extensive, combined with the cd quality they stream. Last time I checked Spoify and Deezer did not have this. Last time I checked Tidal has more titles than them too.
Could have changed, if so please say so.
I started streaming with Spotify and Deezer, but switched to Qobuz for the streaming quality. Moved to Tidal for more content in my likes. Like metal and rock.
If you continue to use Roon, please leave the Roon Ready setting enabled. If you decide you won’t be using Roon any longer, then disable it.
As for Custom Resampling, it should be disabled if you use Roon, since Roon has its own DSP engine. However, if you want to tune the sound of Spotify, you could try resampling 44.1kHz to DSD64 and see if you like it better or worse.
I also recommend turning off Lumin Streaming (AirPlay) unless you need it for other purposes like Deezer app. Last time I checked Spotify app has a tendency to use AirPlay instead of Spotify Connect if you have been using AirPlay just before it.
Yes the T2 is on my radar.
On deezer website, 16 bit 1411 kbps. Cd quality. Lossless
I just found they music deezer would play from their Radio engine, “Flow” was very agreeable to me.
Yes I do have do more experiments with Tidal. I’m just a tad confused on Mqa at the moment.
I’m on a trial of Roon, and it took me quite a few days to really flesh it out and understand what its value proposition is and how that can be beneficial to me.
So at the start, the theory was quite simple. Get Roon, Subscribe to Tidal and Mqa for the Lumin. At this very moment, I might only keep the Lumin. Or I might buy Roon and just use my local music with it.
I can’t be the only Lumin user, who likes Roon and doesn’t want Tidal (at this point). I’m sure I’m in the minority though.
I don’t think it matters much which steaming service you want to use in consideration of getting ROON. For me the user friendliness + metadata (although not perfect) ROON offers is more to my likes than the Lumin app. + the DSD upsample option which is more limited in my Lumin. Ow and speaker set up.
Made me consider to get rid of my cd player and digitize those who are not offered at streaming service. But have to admit…the sound of my T2 without Roon is pretty good and am not sure if I had invested in Roon if I had the T2 first. Although I admit is does seem a small upgrade I enjoy.
I use tidal as Qobuz is not available where I live. Given the choice I might end up with both but my wife uses uses Spotify and I can access that too as family member allows. Tidal I use through roon only as I’m a lifetime member many years now.
