I found info on your website that HEOS devices do not support Deezer Hifi, but only Premium.

However, as I have a Deezer Hifi plan, can I stream music in HiFi mode to the Marantz receiver directly from Deezer application?

Issue solved. Bought Google Chromecast third generation and connected it to stereo receiver. HiFi works fine once it gets going. 🙂 Not the fastest experience when skipping tracks, but it’s ok. It works in HiFi quality fine and it uses internal Marantz DAC which is what I wanted.

Hi there @AlenV1983 

Sorry to hear that. The good thing is that we're working on a device discovery feature that may help you in the future so that you can cast to it directly from the Deezer app and in HiFi quality. Thank you for your support and for your patience!

I have a Deezer Hifi account and would not like to downgrade to Premium. So if I stream the music from Deezer in HiFi mode via Airplay (not through HEOS) to Marantz will I get the Hifi quality or not?

Hi there @Aca 

Thanks for reaching out. At the moment I can tell you that, if you stream using Airplay, you'll lose some of the FLAC quality of HiFi. We're working on a new integration, but it's soon to have a timeline to confirm when. So in the meantime, I suggest you to connect your Marantz to perhaps a PC/Mac to ensure you make the most of your HiFi subscription :wink:

Thanks on the explanation Rudi!

How about when streaming Deezer Hifi through Bluetooth? Is there a loss in quality? 

I am seaking for a workaround solution up to the moment HEOS starts supporting Deezer Hifi. I hope you are going to update the app soon, as Eastern European countries are only supported by Deezer for music streaming.

Cheers!

Hi @Aca 

Thank you for your patience, and no loss has been reported when casting that way :thumbsup_tone2: but better news, the HEOS app should now support HiFi streaming too :smiley:

Hey @rtnm @Silvestrus  how do you stream to your Marantz? Does it have Chromecast built-in?

Hi @Rudi ,

We use official HEOS app on the phone which serves as remote. We don't stream anything from the phone to device. We just send command through HEOS application and then HEOS built in receiver plays music by fetching stream by itself. 

We also have notice on TV screen about stream quality. Tidal shows FLAC quality while Deezer shows MP3 320 kbps altiugh Hifi option works fine on phone or PC for example.

I switched from family account to Hifi subscription today because of your notice that HEOS supoorts Hifi subscription now. Unfortunately, that is not case at the moment for me and others as far as I can see.

There is noticable difference between Hifi quality and standard premium. I don't want to change my equipment to get Hifi music streaming service. I hope that you will come up with solution soon.

If I could assist you with screenshots or anything else in order to get Hifi on HEOS, please let me know.

Thanks for your support and effort. I appreciate.

Hello @Silvestrus,  very sorry for the inconvenience. Could you share with me where you saw that HEOS supports Deezer HiFi? 

Have a great day!

Hi @Silvestrus, that’s pretty cool, I’m really glad for you :slight_smile: Thanks a lot for letting us know!

Have a very nice week

 

Hi all,

can I just try to make a summary? Of course I have a Deezer HiFi account.

  1. Playing through HEOS on my Marantz: MP3 (you can see this in the Info details when playing from HEOS app)  >» Plenty of usres are complaining about this.
  2. Playing on my Android phone: FLAC (HiFi icon on the cover album)
  3. Streaming to Chromecast: MP3 (the HiFi icon on cover album disappears)
  4. Android TV: not sure, as there’s not HiFi icon on the album cover and no other way to tell.

Sorry but I’m switching back to TIDAL at the end of the month...

Thanks for copying your reply in this topic here too @Giovanni Stoto - your feedback is duly noted :thumbsup_tone2:

When will we know if that this feature will be available, or at least be told when we would know?

 

Right now the Heos app doesn't have the ability to access all the features that the regular Deezer app has such as discovery playlists, auto track selection etc. 

 

The user experience is actually quite poor compared to the original app.

 

Thanks

This is not solved. Buying something else to have this working is not solved. your issue might be solved but the issue still exist. It is only showing 320kbps if using HEOS via Marantz

Hi @Andre.du.Preez and all,

Thank you for your patience.

The good news is that we're making good progress on this. Our devs are working directly with their counterparts in HEOS who are working a way to enable HiFi via their app. Stay tuned :wink:

 We look forward to Deezer Hifi through Heos. I have the same problem. I have a Marantz NR 1508 receiver, and I have Deezer in Heos. HIFI doesn't work !!!

Hello @Nicusor Dumitru, sorry that your language is not yet supported on the Community. Thank you for the feedback, I understand your expectations, I hope we’ll meet them soon enough! We’re working on it.

Any updates on this? I just purchased a Marantz SR7012 and it's killing me that I can't play FLAC quality, only 320kbps.
