Qobuz integration again

(James Antognini) #513

Leaving aside the streaming beta’s availability, I found nothing about streaming working through Roon. Instead, there were hardware partners like Linn, Sony and Auralic, plus smartphones/tablets and PCs.

Seems my free trial using CEDA2018 is over. App was asking for password and it didn’t work. Then tried forgot password and claims didn’t even had my email address. When I try to reregister is said I had to be invited to register.

Well at least that means we’re getting close. I had the at least have another free trial so I can try to actual US version of the app.

Thanks for checking in, shadowlight. I appreciate it!

I have my Roon core running at all times and in exclusive mode, but, it’s not playing anything while I’m trying to use Qobuz.

My main issues seem to revolve around actually interacting with the UI (ie. clicks, scrolls, selecting menu items, etc.) It is excruciatingly slow, oftentimes not registering any input at all. Heaven forbid I should actually try to play anything! I’m lucky if I’ve gotten to hear more than three or four songs in a week since my trial began.

It just doesn’t make sense to me. Yes, I’m in the US. Yes, I probably shouldn’t be using it right now. Here’s the thing: For a long time, Qobuz has allowed users across the pond like me to not-so-secretly use their service simply by e-mailing the customer service department. It was maybe about three or so years ago that they stopped providing new accounts in this fashion, though, to my knowledge, anyone who was previously provided an account can still use it.

In terms of a PC, I’ve got a low-voltage Core i5, 16 gb of RAM, an SSD, and a circa 2015 mid-range mobile graphics card, an NVidia 860M. This is my main machine, and, yes, the same PC I am currently using to run my core (I know, I know). I only bring that last bit up because I have had no issues whatsoever running Roon, Tidal, the FIFA games, or anything else. It’s just this blasted Qobuz app!

Is it possible that it is because I’m a US-based user, located in NY, who should not be using it right now and who happened to get slightly lucky by getting a code? Am I being punished somehow? LOL I really don’t know, but, it’s definitely been driving me a bit batty!


I am at a loss on why you are having issues with the UI. It should work. One other thing to check and see if there is an option to restart the application after the upgrade, which might give you the UI issues.

I am based in NJ and no issues so far playing via one of the codes provided.

If you have an account on Computeraudiophile there is an issues thread where two members of Qobuz team actively participate.

funny thing is everytime I try to sign up for the trial it tells me “closed beta in your country” and won’t take my payment but it keeps pushing the date of the trial expiration back another 30 days lol. Today the free month takes me to 07/2019!

If they don’t invite me soon I’ll have 2 years of free service lol!

Thanks for checking back in, Shadow. I really have no idea what else to try here. I’ll go check out the thread on CA and see what they have to say. Thanks for the recommendation, and I’ll keep you posted!


Does that mean they’ve pushed the launch date to 06/19?!
