  1. you need to run a UPnP server, correct? trying to get away from two servers. No, using the standard UPnP/DLNA supporting microRendu to stream from Qobuz with the BubbleUPnP Android controller app or the BubbleUPnP Server helper application (it wasn't clear which - either or both could be used with the microRendu), does not require a UPnP/DLNA (media) server. The BubbleUPnP Android controller app provides access to Qobuz (as well as some other online streaming music services) for standard UPnP/DLNA, OpenHome & Google Cast (eg Chromecast Audio) supporting streamers. It does not require the BubbleUPnP Server to provide this access. The BubbleUPnP Server helper software (installable on Windows, Mac & Linux computers, as well as some NASs & interestingly can even be installed on the microRendu itself) provides access to Qobuz & TIDAL for standard UPnP/DLNA and Google Cast supporting streamers, using OpenHome Streaming Services via its Create an (emulated) OpenHome Renderer function. Requires you to also use an OpenHome controller with OpenHome Streaming Services support, eg, Linn Kazoo app, Lumin app, BubbleUPnP Android app, Bubble DS Next app, etc. Incidentally, just in case you're wondering, the BubbleUPnP Server is not a UPnP/DLNA media server.
  2. According to BillG on the RP Listener forum, the RP iOS & Android apps use a proprietary mechanism in order to access and play the FLAC source files directly from their online server, rather than connect to a true FLAC internet radio stream. Apparently they intend providing software for Linux hosted devices (such as the Raspberry Pi) in order to do the same processing of the RP FLAC files. However, you are going to have to wait until next year for that. http://www.radioparadise.com/rp_2.php#name=Forum&file=showtopic&topic_id=24790
  3. Only one of the most popular threads in these forums, though small wonder you couldn't recall it given its title and it being in the Music Servers section! Reason enough to take with a pinch of salt, perhaps? A novel way to massively improve the SQ of computer audio streaming
  4. The lack of excitement is probably due to no link to the actual FLAC stream. It only seems to be available indirectly via their app. BTW, free FLAC streaming in hi-res 16/192kHz and with absolutely no interruptions is also available via similar eclectic radio station - JB Radio2. They too have decided not to provide a link to the FLAC stream on their website, but you can easily find it on their icecast server's status page:
  5. In what way are Bluesound streamers with built-in DAC the "best choice" for streaming from Qobuz compared to similar (ie, also with built-in DAC) on the list from the likes of Arcam, Auralic, Linn, Lumin, Teac, etc?
  6. Control Tidal remotely

    What exactly do you mean by "normalize"? Also, by 'jcn3 method', do you mean using the BubbleUPnP Server's Create an OpenHome Renderer function (to provide TIDAL & Qobuz access via OpenHome Streaming Services) for any standard UPnP/DLNA renderer on the network? Remember, only you have mentioned using foobar2000 (presumably with the foo_upnp plugin) as a standard UPnP/DLNA renderer. Yes, you are streaming lossless FLAC. The foobar2000 remote access is a totally separate BubbleUPnP Server function and has nothing to do with BubbleUPnP Server's Create an OpenHome Renderer function. Additionally, the foo_upnp plugin provides three distinct UPnP components for foobar2000: a UPnP renderer, a UPnP controller (aka control point) & a UPnP media server. You are proposing to use foobar2000 only as a UPnP renderer. BubbleUPnP Server's foobar2000 remote access function only interacts with foobar2000's UPnP Browser window which is part of the foo_upnp plugin's UPnP controller.
  7. There are output boards that you can add to the Raspberry Pi for optical, eg the HiFiBerry Digi+: https://www.hifiberry.com/products/digiplus/ BTW, an alternative to using standard UPnP/DLNA supporting players like Moode, which require you to also use the BubbleUPnP Server software for OpenHome Streaming Services (TIDAL & Qobuz), would be to use openhome.org's OpenHome Player on the RPi, which has built-in OpenHome Streaming Services support: OpenHome Player for Raspberry Pi
  8. You mentioning "500 titles" sounded very familiar so I've just done a quick search on your profile and sure enough you've said it before in one of your previous threads that I also posted in - you even mention that using the BubbleUPnP (Server) app on your NAS overcomes the 500 TIDAL title limit via LMS issue! https://www.computeraudiophile.com/forums/topic/35173-alternative-to-lms-with-tidal/?do=findComment&comment=715045 So, given that you are using the BubbleUPnP Server to create an OpenHome Renderer for the Picore player as a UPnP/DLNA player (provided by the UPnP/DLNA Media Interface LMS plugin), the first thing to check is to see if the Picore (UPnP/DLNA) Player is still visible on the BubbleUPnP Server's Media Renderers page and whether its settings still indicate that it has an OpenHome Renderer created for it.
  9. TIDAL access via the Linn Kazoo app requires even more specialised OpenHome compatibilty - OpenHome Streaming Services, which is optional so not all OpenHome players will support it, let alone Squeezebox type players! Do you remember installing and configuring the BubbleUPnP Server helper software on the Synology NAS? That can get standard UPnP/DLNA players to support OpenHome, including OpenHome Streaming Services (for TIDAL & Qobuz access). If so, the only mystery then is how you got the Squeezebox supporting Picore player to appear as a standard UPnP/DLNA player so that it could work with the BubbleUPnP Server. It's possible the UPnP/DLNA Media Interface plugin (by Andy Grundman), when installed & enabled on LMS, has that function.
  10. The Linn Kazoo app is only intended to control OpenHome (aka UPnP with Linn extensions) supporting players, which is incompatible with the Squeezebox streaming technology used by the Picore player. How did you get the Picore player to support OpenHome in the first place, ie, when it was working with the Linn Kazoo app?
  11. Qobuz remote

    The OpenHome Player, as mentioned in your similar TIDAL thread for exactly the same reasons!
  12. Control Tidal remotely

    It has nothing to do with the official TIDAL Desktop app (hence the reason why it doesn't take advantage of the TIDAL app's built-in MQA Core decoder). The OpenHome Player natively connects to TIDAL's online servers in order to stream and play the audio file tracks directly. Incidentally, it's the same as the foobar2000 (with the foo_UPnP plugin for the UPnP renderer) plus BubbleUPnP Server method, but of course less complicated, as it supports OpenHome Streaming Services natively so no requirement for the BubbleUPnP Server's created OpenHome Renderer. Agreed, it's unfortunate that the OpenHome Player can currently only output via the Windows audio mixer.
  13. Is Foobar "appropriate" for me ?

    Ok, then may be the Windows firewall is blocking foobar2000.
  14. Is Foobar "appropriate" for me ?

    If you have installed the foo_out_upnp (UPnP MediaRenderer output) plugin properly, you should automatically get the Arcam Solo Music streamer as a selectable device in foobar2000's Output settings. Does the Arcam Solo Music appear on the Windows 10 PC's list of devices in the Windows media streaming options? If not, then your Windows 10 PC itself cannot see the Arcam Solo Music for some reason.
  15. I don't think anyone on this thread talked about struggling to "set up Foobar2000 with MinimServer" - you've sort of hijacked it! This thread is specifically about using foobar2000 as a helper application to solve the issue with DLNA players, such as the old Oppo 93, which by definition cannot be (directly) controlled by standard UPnP/DLNA control points, such as the BubbleUPnP Android app. A quick search on your profile shows you've already created your own thread (in the software section) regarding your problem: Is Foobar "appropriate" for me ? So, it'll be more appropriate for me to respond to your particular issue there.
