I tried using the desktop app of Tidal and stream it directly to Volumio, but the sound qualify of Tidal HIFI streamed to Volumio is not so good as Volumio with FLAC.

Hi Pedro, the best way to stream Tidal to Volumio at the moment is Bubble Upnp on Android. I'm using my Samsung tablet to stream Tidal flac (HiFi) to Volumio on my Odroid C2. With the same app I also stream to my Cubietruck which is running openhome mediaplayer and mpd. Both renderer (Odroid C2 and Cubirtruck) are openhome compatible and can play gapless thanks to mpd.

I have a Qobuz plugin (which I wrote last year, referred to by Michelangelo above) up and running on volumio. Good news, it sounds fantastic! The Volumio plugin system makes it pretty easy to integrate and navigate.

I have most Qobuz functionality working with the exception of favourites management. Browsing by genre has been implemented but unfortunately the Qobuz api doesn't really return sensible results for anything other than top level genres. I've added a few hacks to the search (Qobuz plugin only) that allow searching albums or tracks only and also searching within your Qobuz favourites.

Hopefully the plugin can be published soon, would love to get some feedback on it. The hold up relates to an application key/secret which needs to come from Qobuz. They seem pretty slow to respond to any requests!

And a couple more! Note the bit rate - if you have a 'Sublime' subscription you can stream hires music that you have purchased from Qobuz.

Hallo
I have a few days ago also at Qobuz directly asked whether Qobuz is soon available in Volumio. I had after 3 days an answer with the following content, which hopes:

******************************
Hallo,
Thank you for your message and your interest in Qobuz.
The integration into the system Volumio is just in the negotiation. Unfortunately, we can not give you a specific date when you can expect it.

We are at your disposal for further questions and thank you for your patience.
Best regards,
******************************

I think it sounds not bad ... :D
