    I signed up to Qobuz a while ago. Their bog-standard 'entry' (i.e lowest !) streaming quality is MP3's set at 320kbps. From there, they offer HD streams of FLAC files going up to 24bit 192kHz ...

    Of late, I've basically abandoned music and listened to news and discussion outputs. Oh, and here's a real treat to hold in one's imagination: the 'persuasive' sound of Jeremy Corbyn walking around in circles, as the most convincing means he has of persuading our Lefties that he's fit to continue on as Labour leader ....
    You're preaching to the choir brother... ... I'm an old audiophile from way, way back. You want to avoid using bluetooth for music also, because it's inception was intended for wireless voice, not music. It won't relay the increased bit rates of HD and Ultra HD music.
