Just a little question... - lyapounov - 30-07-2022 13:12

Hi Simon,

just a simple question: when using the Lumin app, and browsing Qobuz, the app indicates using the famous yellow-black icon when music is HD.

Is it something that could be feasible when browsing my library using minimserver ?

Thx !

There are two settings that can help:
- using tagFormat = Album.displayFormat {$album^$#AudioFormat$#AudioData^ [^]}
- using indexTags = #AudioData
These settings bring you to (see attached screenshots)

Another option is to use #AudioQuality instead of #AudioData. This shows CD, HD, HD+, DXD, etc.

Thx to both of you for your answers.

Therefore I guess there is no way to display an icon.

BTW Stefano, I see some DSD which you own. What are your best DSD, both in terms of interpretation, and sound recording ?

Cheers

A UPnP server can send artwork images to the control point. All other visual effects are controlled by the control point.

MinimServer sends audio data (bit depth, sample rate) to the control point as part of the XML metadata, so any control point could read this metadata and display an appropriate icon.

My DSD albums can be divided into two categories:
1) the only editions available for those recordings
2) remastered editions of albums with different original resolution
For category 1) no comparison can be made.
For category 2) instead the comparison is possible but there are two variables: DSD format and remastering.
It is therefore very difficult to attribute the quality, always very high, to one or the other variable. It is my opinion that a lot of the quality is due to the remastering rather than the format.
So I can only tell you that a remastered DSD edition always has excellent quality.
