I’m new to Audirvana and loving it! This my las week of the trial and before decide to pay for it I have some questions.
I use Audirvana with Tidal and Qobuz, no local files.
- I play Audirvana from MacBook Air > Airfoil > Apple TV > HomePod Speakers (Stereo paired).
Everything works fine with the set up above. I can even see the album art in my TV! I don’t now if Airfoil is compressing my High Resolution Qobuz or MQA Tidal songs to 16/44 bitrate because of the Airplay limitations. I strongly suspect it does, but not sure. Airfoil is very secretive when asking about what exactly they do with Airplay.
Does somebody knows if Airfoil compress the High Resolution audio?
- Upgrading my system to enjoy my high resolution music fully.
I know that you can play Tidal or Qobuz directly from your Computer/Audirvana to the Devialet Phamton speakers wireless . Unfortunately I can’t afford two Phantom speakers.
I want two self powered speakers, cheaper than the Phantoms, to be paired as stereo that allow me to play from my computer/Audirvana directly without an extra audio device (not streamers in the middle) like the Devialet speakers do.
What would it be my options, if any?
I hope the above makes sense. I’m new on this.
Thanks in advance for your help.
