10's of thousands of audiophile users use various Squeezebox/LMS solutions to stream high files files/Tidal/Qubuz to hifi systems.
Deezer is already available as a Squeezebox plugin but sadly, hifi quality is not yet enabled.
I switched from Tidal Hifi back to Deezer as I assumed that hifi quality would be available on my Squeezebox solution, but sadly that was not the case.

When will Deezer Hifi become available on Squeezebox?

Hi, I can assure you that they're working on it 🙂. Please keep an eye on our devices list and hopefully soon we will be able to update it and offer HiFi on Squeezebox ;)
I passed your feedback to our devs! Thanks for it!

That is great to know!
I REALLY look forward to get high quality sound again 😀
Hi - I am one of the many thousands of LMS / Squeezebox users.

Last message in this thread is 2 months old - no further update.

Can you please advise when HiFi service is planned to be available? Is it available as a beta version?

Thanks,

Hi Stephen, we have no updates on this at the moment, but we'll keep everyone updated once we do.
5 months later... Any news on this?
Also interested in HIFI support on Squeezebox, as well as few of my friends...
Looking forward to it! ☺
Try ickstream, it works fine for me (flac)

I have a Deezer Hifi subscription and used it on my squeezeboxes (I have multiple of them around the house) with the ickStream plugin. All was working fine... until ickStream discontinued their service on May 31st 2019.

So, where there was a workaround to the fact that deezer didn't support their Hifi service in their squeezebox app, the workaround doesn't exist any more. Now is the time Deewer realy needs to update their Squeezebox app to keep their Hifi customers on squeezebox.

For myself, i will stop my Deezer Hifi subscription if i can't use it again on my squeezebox in the near future. I'm likely I will leave Deezer altogether since i do want CD quality sound and some competitors do properly support squeezebox.

Deezer? any update on the support of Hifi on squeezebox?

Thanks,
Manuel

Hi Rudi. How many more votes do you need to seriously consider this? Ickstream is now dead as of end of Q1 2019 and many users were using Ickstream to accomplish this. I know Tidal does do Hifi with Logitech Media Server/Squeezebox. I've asked people to vote but the forums for squeezebox/LMS really only get used when someone has an issue -- these types of things are a set it and leave it type of service, thus I know there are many who would like this functionality.
