Streamer question

I've looked and looked and can't find the answer to my question.

I use a Bluesound Node to stream both Spotify and Qobuz.  The Bluesound lets me use the web app that I downloaded to my Ipad to play music.

I want to upgrade, but I'm not seeing whether or not that is possible.  Most of the better streamers ($2000 or so) seem to have their own software which I would rather not use.

Anybody know the answer to this?

Thank you!


+1 Innuos streamers are a great value. I can use it with Roon or with the Sense app at the flick of a switch on the Innuos app. They sound every bit as good as my dCS Bartok Apex streamer. It will be a great upgrade.

More clarification here.

If I want to listen to Spotify or Qobuz I access their app on my Ipad.  I do not use the Bluesound software at all.  When I log in to either service it recognizes the Blusound as an output device so I select it. 

I am using and am happy with, and want to continue using the web apps.  I do not want to use either the Bluesound app or any other software.

I used Rigelian with the Bryston BDP3.  As another poster noted, at least back then it only managed local storage.  If I wanted to use Qobuz I had to be in Manic Moose.  This was annoying because one couldn’t easily navigate between stored music and streamed music.  I also found it inadequate for managing local storage, although certainly an improvement over Manic Moose

I have both bluos and Innuos sense apps. Actually the Innuos is just as simple and easy as bluos to connect to qobuz as it has a direct qobuz connection. 

I use sense on my Zenith Mk3 and Wiim on ifi Aurora. No comparison, sense wins by a country mile. Before Sense I used iPeng; when Sense was introduced the jump in user friendliness and SQ wasn‘t small!
