I am really impressed by Deezer Hifi, but the lack of lossless streaming through Airplay is a real dealbreaker for me (and don't understand the lack in a Hifi setting). Do you have this feature scheduled in the near future? If so, then I will stick, otherwise I have to leave. Hope to hear from you soon!

Best regards,

Hey @marilyne DELL'amico 

I've replied to you on another topic.

Not at the moment. Not even AirPlay 2 enables streaming FLAC for a third Music provider like us. You can cast to other devices from your iPhone in FLAC via Chromecast, for example (and we're preparing a new integration).

For example, FLAC on the new Homepod is only available with Airplay 2 for Apple Music. Thank you for your support and understanding :thumbsup_tone2:

So now we can use Deezer hifi from an iPhone and send the sound via airplay to a compatible device, in lossless streaming ? Thanks to confirm.

Hi there @Gokhan 

Thank you for your patience, your reply fell off our grid. Apologies for that.

We're introducing HiFi to our mobile apps (in test at the moment). So very soon you'll be able to stream to other devices as well. The native Samsung app won't offer this yet, but if you stream using your phone (we're currently working on this), you'll have a solution. We'll keep you posted :thumbsup_tone2:

At the moment by airplaying to the TV with your phone you may lose some quality, yes.

Hello there,
Everything works fine for me, but please help me understand the Hi Fi availability with my setup;
My setup is;
Samsung QLED TV (2018)
connected to my professional RME DAC via tos link(optical) cable
and my DAC to my amplifier. Meaning, Digital to Analog conversion is not on Samsung TV side.

What is not clear to me is;
1- Am I listening hi fi / lossless when using the Deezer app on Samsung QLED TV (2018)? If yes, it means the app is downloading the music at high resolution when possible, and sending it to DAC directly and digitally without any conversion, right?

2- I also sometimes use my mobile (iPhone) to select the songs and airplay it to Samsung TV. In this case, am I loosing sound quality either during airplay ( sending digital data from phone to tV) or during processing of data in TV? )

Thanks in Advance

Hi @btentusscher, we don't have this information here, but I can definitely to confirm that our devs are working on bringing our HiFi subscription to many more devices. Feel free to join and vote for this Got and Idea topic 😉
