Chromecast implementation seems to vary widely, and when I tried it with Qobuz some time ago it was pretty poor to be honest. I thought perhaps they might have improved it over time, but perhaps not?
There’s always Roon. It costs, but it works.
@ChrisSU I can’t really say, it’s the first time I try it. However it worked for an hour and then it stopped all of a sudden, so I might need to go back to the Naim app. The sound quality seemed identical to me both using the Naim app and Qobuz from my computer (is it only me thinking that?).
I didn’t experience any interruption in music till the very end of my music session. I’ll try again and see how it goes.
Another way is to install Bubble UPnP on your network (I have it on my NAS) and use it to render your NDX2 openhome compliant. Once this is done you should be able control your streamer, including Qobuz, using Linn’s Kazoo app which will run on a Mac and (I presume) a PC. I prefer the Naim app, mostly, but it works, at least for me.
I don’t think NDX2 is openhome compatible, the Atom certainly isn’t. Linn Kazoo cannot control Naim streamers directly but it can control openhome compatible streamers. The point of using Bubble UPnP is to render the NDX2 compatible so you can control it with Kazoo, (and several other tablet-based control points foo). This is exactly what I do with the Atom in my office and it works well.
@jmtennapel@frenchrooster I’m pretty sure an iPad works well (surely much better than my tablet), but I wanted to know if it’s possible to use Qobuz from my PC instead of my tablet.
@jmtennapel Right now I prefer not to use a tablet, despite appreciating it.
I’ve used JRiver without faults, so I wonder if I could do the same with Qobuz, that would be very nice.
I’ll try to experiment again tonight, I hope to get a stable connection between Qobuz and my NDX 2. Maybe it’s Chromecast not working as it should, it does show only sometimes in the Qobuz interface.
The NDX2 buffer is 50Mb which means it can store about 3 minutes of more of 16/44.1 material, obviously less if it’s high-res but it was very much designed to cope with the potential increased latency of online streaming so I don’t think this is your problem.
