I recently signed up for Roon and noticed that the only streaming service availble is TIDAL. Tidal may suit some users, especially those interested in modern Music (e.g. Rap etc.) but as Tidal has a VERY limited catalogue of Classic Music, I strongly suggest that RoonLabs would add Qobus streaming to its, otherwise, excellent application.
Read more about Qobuz here:
I hope that there are more users that would like to see the Qobuz streaming service for serious Music lovers included un Roon.
Keep up the good work!
Qobuz does not want to partner with Roon… there are many threads here about this.
I resubscribe at this moment if they partner with ROON.
Their App is a bad joke.
And they try it to compare with Roon.
A small search, and you will be rewarded with endless discussion, feedback from the Roon team, and clear reasoning why it hasn’t happened.
Many of us want it, but its not going to happen. The more important question now is, ‘will there be any alternatives to Tidal in the future?’
I keep Roon with or without Tidal.
I subscribed to Tidal (again) because of MQA.
We see where that goes.
Qobuz has nothing to offer to me atm.
They will vanish without marketing.
Over time, there has been a lot of discussion over Qobuz. Most info is here:
Over here in Europe – i live in Switzerland – Qobuz-HiFi-Streaming is quite popular (in my neighbourhood way more so than Tidal). I like their catalogue. And the quality is top.
But I don’t like their presentation of their vast selection of classical music at all – and roon could change that forever. Qobuz-integration à la Tidal would be very welcome. In my case that would trigger an immediate lifetime membership (if roon sounds great [= transparent] and works on my macs and my iPad as expected…
That thread however ended with this:
Anyone with news about Qobuz business plans is welcome to post in the new
Qobuz News and Correspondence thread…
This thread was creating the misleading impression that making a request of Roon might advance the prospects of Qobuz integration, and that is not the case. Read further up this thread and you will see how the story has unfolded.
I’ll close this thread now, as there’s really nothing new to discuss.
