    White noise when qobuz plugin is set to hi res

    Hi,
    I am new to the forum and hoping for some help.
    I have trawled through the forum threads but cant find an answer, I hope I am posting in the right area.

    I have been using an old Vortexbox/LMS streaming to a pi3 with picoreplayer and Allo Katana with great success.
    I recently purchased a used (but new this year) Audiostore Nova with LMS I managed to configure everything and got up and running pretty quickly.
    The issue I have is with the LMS Qobuz plugin...when I set the "Preferred format" option to anything higher than "Flac 16 bits / 44.1 khz I get nothing but white noise. When I play hi res files from my local storage using LMS they play fine.
    I have the highest tier Qobuz subscription, I can play hi res files fine on the PC app and Mobile phone app.

    I dont know if my problem is with LMS, the Qobuz plugin, picoreplayer or the Allo Katana. All I know is it used to work fine and now does not.
    Any help or pointers would be much appreciated.

    I've recently had feedback from another Qobuz/pCP/Allo user reporting
    the same issue. He told me that using max2play it did work. Would be
    interesting to understand what difference there is between the two.

    Thanks for that Info, I will investigate max2play further. On first look they dont seem to support the Katana DAC.
    It is strange that when I switch from my new Nova unit back to the older Vortexbox everything works fine, I guess that suggests there is a setting within the Nova that is not quite right.
