    Effect of Preferred format (e.g. FLAC Hi-Res 24 bits / 96 kHz)

    I wondered how qobuz responds to the Preferred format selection. So, if I have preferred 24/96, but an album is available in 24/192, what happens? Does it mean the album won't show as available, or if an album is available in 24/192, does will it also be available in 24/96, or will it drop down to 16/44.1? Most of my devices will play 24/192, but I have a Transporter, which caps out at 24/96. Just trying to work out the best option where some devices are limited, but qobuz is increasing the amount of 192, so thinking about what's best to do.

    Heureka!

    I think I found my solution. And it seems the proponents for the plugin are right. It works flawlessly now.

    I had my router configured in stealth mode. A ping to streaming-std.qobuz.com gave back an IPv4-address with packet loss of about 25%.
    After switching off stealth mode I sent another ping to streaming-std.qobuz.com which was answered from an IPv6-host at Amazon's cloudfront.net. That's what it should look like!!
    Not to mention there's no packet loss at all!!

    Very relieved greetings from northern Germany,
    happy Jazzlampe

    On the basis that I add albums to favourites via the Qobuz app which allows 24/192 selection but they then appear in LMS even with 24/96 selected as preferred I’d say they definitely aren’t hidden.
    What LMS actually chooses to play though I’m not sure.
    Some testing required
