    DSTM/LAstMix ?

    @Michael

    Can you advise which streaming services other than Spotify does DSTM/LastMix support?

    I'm wondering which HD service to go for - Qobuz or Tidal but it must work with DSTM/LastMix?

    Dining Room -> SB Boom

    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones

    Deezer, Qobuz, Tidal, Napster

    As I don't use any of them actively I can't speak for the quality of the
    integration, though...

    Many thanks
    I thought that was the case.
    Does the code have any bias towards one service more than another if it finds multiple streaming services?

    Lossless is preferred over lossy. "3rd party" preferred over those built
    in to LastMix. Which means that if you had Qobuz and TIDAL, Qobuz should
    win. This is assuming that a user who installs an additional plugin
    (Qobuz) really wants to use that plugin.

    Thanks
    I have gone for the TIDAL HiFi one month free trial.
    At present I'm seeing Spotify (lossy) preferred over TIDAL (lossless) but I have been playing continously all day so perhaps a reboot is in order.

    Oh... I think there's an issue with this constellation... My simplistic
    assumption that if you install another plugin, that's the preferred one,
    would prefer Spotty over the built-in Tidal. There currently is no way
    to override this but disabling Spotty while you're testing Tidal.

    It has been a few days since I installed TIDAL.
    I haven't uninstalled Spotty but DSTM/LastMix now seems to be choosing TIDAL whenever it can so I think Michael's original assertion that lossless has higher priority is correct (even if he has forgotten)
    I may sign up for Qobuz to see if that has precedence over TIDAL.
