Yes man, have to go vpn. U get stuck on it. U hear so much more then in tidal. But must connect to laptop or nas otherwise can't play studio quality. Go to the settings and adjust to ensure u get the highest SQ. Guess I will be signing up for studio!

I used VPN to subscribe to Qobuz couple of days back and am quite happy with the selections and high res quality. The Qobuz app is not available for Android in our country but the iOS version can be downloaded. You are correct to say that high res files cannot be streamed but this is the case if you use the app.

In iOS, if you have the mConnect app, Qobuz can be streamed all the way to 24/192. But Tidal masters can be streamed at max of only 24/48. Both Tidal and Qobuz are fully integrated in the app.

In Android, you can use both mConnect and BubbleUPnP to stream Qobuz at full resolution but not Tidal in these two apps but with the latest update from Tidal you can play their master files directly using their own app from any Android phones. But in my opinion a far better app for streaming Tidal or Qobuz is to purchase USB Audio Player Pro. This app bypasses your phone Android driver and uses its own high quality high res drivers. Fully supports Tidal MQA and stream Qobuz at full resolution. But the best part is the the sound quality, certainly worth the money with its feature rich options.

How do you subscribe to Qobuz. It is not available in Singapore.

Do you use VPN to first subscribe? I have no experience with VPN so how do I go about it?

Thanks.

You can use free Winscribe VPN to subscribe and thereafter you can stream without using VPN.

You can consider subscribe a free trial from Qobuz US when it goes out of beta in mid February. It will much cheaper, due to exchange rate. A full Hi-Res will cost USD24.99 which works out SGD34.

FYI, i stop the subscription after free trial. There are two of the same tracks playing when it changes to the next. Highlighted to them the bug, until the platform more stabilise, will KIV first.

I feel the SQ is better but u have to hook up with a computer or lightning cable  to mobile to get the hi res tracks, but the bug is super annoying enough for me to hold back

Hmmm.. I'm not encountering any such bugs with Qobuz. How exactly are you streaming Qobuz?
You'll never get to heaven with a smile on your face from me.
