All, I am new to the community with a few days left on (what I feel is too short of a) trial period. I posted a suggestions list, now I have some questions about Qobuz integration and best practices.
I started a few test playlists, choosing in each case the highest quality versions of songs (which was never my personal copies from iTunes library that live on my NUC). I did not however add them to my library for the tests, not sure which direction I was going, what the rules were for trial (Doing trial of Qobuz at moment), etc. So:
- Is it best practice to download to NUC in each case? I know that Qobuz has their own store, but if I have subscription to their service, and download the songs, will it go to my NUC and play that way? I assume this would be best since the NUC and Roon are so robust vs. streaming from cloud.
- I was streaming a playlist of Qobuz songs yesterday to my Denon device in the garage (Ethernet connection). The songs kept stopping after one or two and I would have to walk into house and hit play again via iPad controller. This is strange to me as I have been playing throughout the house and it has never stopped playing before on any other devices. I also play from Apple Music/iTunes out there and it plays continuously.
- Lastly, I was building a jazz playlist to match one I have built previously on iTunes, and for some reason Roon was not able to locate an album “Miles Davis, Kind of Blue” which is definitely included in Qobuz library if you go to web version and look it up. So I am not sure why it failed to locate this, unless there are some limitations from various labels or with the trial itself.
