    Hello Kaz,

    Do you have any particular examples of songs or albums that cannot be played from Qobuz to Bluesound?

    Please note that Bluesound can only stream songs that Qobuz offers for streaming. Some Albums and Tracks from Qobuz are "Purchase Only", and cannot be streamed from Qobuz.

    I have the same problem.
    E.g.
    On my native qobuz client I can find the album: Vivaldi La Stravaganza, Rachel Podger. I can find it on my tablet, but I can only stream fragment, because the right owners don't allow full streaming. However, if I use the qobuz client in my Bluesound Note app I cannot find this album! I cannot find any album of Rachel Podger, whereas in the Qobuz client I can find 20 albums.

    Hello Paul,

    Our Bluesound Firmware cannot show or play any Qobuz tracks that the rightsholder has prevented from streaming.

    I have the same problem as Kaz. Also am streaming Qobuz and can't access the available records. For example, tried to find Weihnachtsoratorium of J.S. Bach. I can access at least 15 different records on the Qobuz app, but can't find anything using Bluesound!!! Try to search for "Weihnachtsoratorium" and you will find nothing! Horrible search engine.

    Dear Bluesound,

    I understand your answers but still wonder why Qobuz would have music that is not allowed to be streamed? It is a streaming engine. Also,

    the number of albums and songs that are not available is substantial, see for instance previous comment, isen't it time bluesound starts to do something about it or communicate more clear about the substantial limitation it is has streaming Qobuz?

    Please do note that many customers choose bluesound to profit optimally from the Qobuz quality!

    For convenience and search engine and display quality there are very good alternatives!

    Sorry to be so critical but I want to remain using bluesound.

     

    Kind regards Kaz

    Hello Kaz,

    On top of providing a Streaming Service, Qobuz also acts as a store for High Quality music.

    Many of the songs they show on Qobuz are only for direct sale.

    On top of this, many streaming services have their songs available for streaming for only a select period of time. The rightsholders can provide the song for streaming for a limited time, or they may be able to withdraw their tracks under certain conditions.

    Feel free to get back to us with any further requests or questions.
