Question

Listening to music in hi-fi quality from desktop app on external speakers


Hi, may be it’s a stupid question, but I’m new in this.
I have desktop Deezer app on my Mac and set up hi-fi quality in it , but how can I listen it through external audio speakers? Should I somehow set up DLNA to allow external network media player connect to deezer app? Or headphones is the only way?

Hi there Alexey,

No question is stupid 😉
I guess you just have to find a way to connect your external speakers to the Mac and play through the app as normal. Have you had any problems with this?
It never will give good quality I guess. Just table solution to listen some music. But how to play music through hi-fi amplifier and hi-fi quality speakers, that is the question...

I use the sound card line out 3.5mm jack of my PC and connect it via an adapter and good RCA cinch cables to my two mono power amps located behind the speakers connected with very short cables. This works very well for me, but of course you cannot use it if your desktop computer is far away from the stereo gear or in another room.



By the way, DNLA does not work with the Deezer desktop app on Windows, as far as I know. Chromecast theoretically works with Deezer HiFi, but many users are reporting buffering problems with it. Last but not least some HiFi devices have implemented Deezer HiFi already, but not too many. Check the related page about devices, the ones showing a yellow HiFi sticker:

I see, thank you for the info.

You're welcome. It seems I have overlooked Google Home, see this info page. But it doesn't work for Russian users yet, do a search in the Ideas section where you can vote on related threads.
