IFi Zen Stream with Qobuz

What is the best way to setup the ifi Zen Stream to work Qobuz? I would like to get 24/196 when available and also trying to find out if that’s possible with this setup. Most likely going to use a Denefrips Ares II in conjunction with the Zen Stream. 


In the setup of mConnect (top left corner)  you have to tell it to play to the Zen Stream otherwise it will just play to the control point.  If you have to turn them both off and then back on Zen Stream first and after it is booted up completely then the Apple device.  

@smrex13 I’d suggest getting a Wi-Fi extender from TP- Link, etc. and going hard wired with a good Ethernet cable from that to the Zen Stream.  Not only does that apparently solve the connection issue, it’ll likely sound better as well. 

@jackd Thanks for the info.  I have restarted them a couple of times, but the Zen Stream doesn't show up as an option to choose.  I have the ZS set on the DNLA setting - is that the correct one?  Under the "Play to" button on the mConnect, my only choice is my Macbook/Airplay.  When I click on the "UPnP devices" it seems to do a search but it doesn't find anything.  

@soix Thanks for the suggestion of a wifi extender.  I'll give it a shot this weekend.

Cheers, Scott



Put it back on option one the all in one option and then re-boot it.  Should find it then.  Doesn't seem to like the specialized setting. 

@jackd Thanks for all of your help here. Much appreciated! Have you tried aftermarket DC cables?
