Digital / Re: Deezer's lossless "Hi Fi" service just launched
« Last post by ScottulusMaximus on Today at 09:08:07 AM »
Unfortunately, your presumption is incorrect. High quality is still MP3-based and therefore not lossless/Hi Fi.

To activate Deezer Hi Fi you have to go here https://www.deezer.com/en/offers/hifi and buy the service (it will show up as Deezer Hi Fi on your phone instead of Premium or Family). You also have to download the desktop application found here: https://www.deezer.com/en/devices. I don't think the lossless service is activated for mobile just yet.

Dunno then, I'm getting lossless on the Family Plan no problem. Can't exactly remember what I signed up for tho....

Both Premium and Family say 'High Quality", which I presume means HiFi

Nope that's always been 320kbps, but I can't go back to 320 now  ;D would have to get a another lossless account if they won't create a family one and my HiFi option disappears  :yawn:

General Discussion / Re: Interconnect and speaker cable coiled up.
« Last post by pwatts on Today at 08:45:37 AM »
I have.to agree. Neither interconnects nor speaker cabling should suffer any adverse effects from coiling, except when pushed to bizarre extents when other factors will dominate too anyway. Big spacing between the conductors may start increasing it, but on moderate lengths this should be benign.

A regular 3m run of speaker cable where one speaker is closer to the amp will have no difference if the one cable has a few turns in it to nearly hide it away.

This beta app is so much better than the buggy crap I got off the Microsoft store that hasn't had an update in ages, I see the publisher is Deezer SA, so who knows how outdated the version is. It was driving me nuts, often I would select a downloaded track to play and it would skip to another track as if it wasn't downloaded. No such issues with the beta app even having to download lossless for the first time. The back navigation actually works and I can pause with the space bar  :giggle:. The download option isn't available but it does cache everything I listen to so you can still listen to those offline, I set the smart cache to 10GB

Hmm I don't know about that, so I'm only paying R89 a month for HiFi, premium only starts at R59, I'm thinking it's a trial or bug

Personally, I am a big fan of Jamo speakers and even have a pair of C97's in stock here in Cape Town that I use as demonstration speakers.
They make brilliant speakers and have matched some of their smaller bookshelf speakers to work well with floor standers for a surround sound setup. So from that point of view, yes they will do great job at being a good quality home theatre setup.

If you are up for it, I would be happy to meet with you and introduce you to the different ranges that they have available so that you can be more aware of what is on offer from them?
