deezer elite without sonos/ Tidal compare

Postby ricko01 » Sun Dec 27, 2015 2:04 am

If I wanted to try Deezer Elite via LMS.. will it work if I dont have a Sonos (ie can I get it activated)?

I assume, like tidal, I can manage my music selections via a PC and not via Sonos?

Also any comments on Tidal verses Deezer in terms of quality and selection?

Thanks,

Peter

Rather than wait for a reply, I signed up for elite (they have a xmas special at the moment) and got logged into deezer via ickstream

Got streaming running but it would stop/start a lot... however I am running some network backups at the moment.

Tidal streams ok with the backups running so I hope Deezer doesnt cause any streaming issues under normal load.

Couldnt check if I am getting the elite quality due to the streaming issues but will do later.

Deezer has some artists that Tidal doesnt but I the Tidal interface is better.

Deezer Elite isn't officially supported other than through Sonos.
That said Deezer Elite has been working fine in beta through ickStream.

One thing that can help if you experience buffering with Deezer Elite, is to proxy through LMS (lms, settings, player, audio, Mp3 streaming (does also for lossless), proxied streaming)

We have set that by default for Tidal and Qobuz (in lms, settings, advanced, ickStream), but not for Deezer Elite yet. We'll add it within the next week or so..
