Native experience, bluetooth and AirPlay

For a native experience with our own applications for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, Bluetooth is the transmission standard, and without doubt the most universal option. However, the sound quality is limited to MP3, without CD Quality or Hi-Res compatibility. By contrast, Apple’s AirPlay allows you to enjoy streaming in CD Quality.

GoogleCast, a technology integrated in our mobile applications, allows music streaming up to 24-bit / 96 kHz Hi-Res quality on iOS and Android. GoogleCast compatible devices are mainly the Chromecast Audio key. The brands HIFI, LG, SONY, Philips, B&O, B&O Play, JBL, Harman Kardon, Raumfeld, Polk, Grundig and Brookstone are all compatible with GoogleCast.

Qobuz is also accessible through other manufacturers, in that it is ‘hosted’ in their iOS or Android applications. The user experience is no longer native, but attempts, as closely as possible, to mirror the experience of our own applications. This is the case with Sonos, Harman Kardon OMNI, Popcorn Hour and Cocktail Audio. Note that these integrations are currently limited to True CD Quality.


Partner integrations

Finally, to take advantage of Hi-Res streaming via a subscription to Qobuz Sublime, our partners Yamaha MusicCast, Bluesound, NAD, Linn, Devialet, Auralic, SamsungLumin, Teac, Esoteric, Mark Levinson, T+A, Musaic and ElectroCompaniet.

BubbleUPnP is not, strictly speaking, a manufacturer, but its Android application uniquely permits the user to stream Qobuz in Hi-Res, and does so for any UPnP/DLNA on the market.
