    Yeah..I'll never buy another Yamaha receiver again😂😂😂
    I'm sure they will catch up on the pay music providers before too long. Hope so for you at least..
    Keep us posted as to progress. Digging our RX A 1060 but we don't do pay radio. The processor is great. Never heard it's power though I imagine it's ok.?

    When I get back in the saddle Mon or Tues next week I'll call as well and act 😡. C'mon Polk.lets get this done!😄🎩

    Im not saying stop buying their products, I just think it is silly they are not supporting products made literally 7 months ago.

    The WXC50 and WXA50 are CURRENT products and will not be receiving the update. Ridiculous really. Aventage 3070, top of the line receiver a year ago... no update... silly

    What are they waiting for? Qobuz to pay them to do it?

    Usually is about the money.

    They are putting quboz on the newer lines, which is all on the same software, can't be that difficult

    In fact, Quobuz was supported on the wxc50 previously and dropped about 2 years ago

    VR3 ,
    Do you have a WXC/A -50 ?
    I have 3 of them and find them outstanding- especially for a couple hundred bucks ...

    I really wish they would support TIDAL’s MQA .....

    I do, they are a fantastic product, not sure why Yamaha is not supporting them. The dac is actually pretty good but not as good as an independent dac of course

    If Yamaha supported quobuz hi Rez in the past , logic would dictate no reason they can’t support tidal MQA ....WTF ?

    Yeah , for the money it can’t be beat ...
    My ears aren’t that good ....

    I am not putting any dampers on the campaign, I just have some thoughts on while almost new equipment is not getting the upgrade. I think the campaign is worth doing, not just for Yamaha, but for Quobuz support.

    It was my understanding that Quobuz is still a trial in the US, meaning they may decide to pull out of the US market. I can see a larger company not rolling out the updates to older players for an app that is not well established if there has already been a firmware change. It may yet happen, but it may either take some time, or they may wait until there is higher demand, or Quobuz is committed to the US. Sometimes it is funding. Some apps pay to get added to equipment, and/or help with firmware updates. A line has to be drawn somewhere. It does not always make sense.

    I don't know the specifics, but a friend uses a streaming app from his iPod and digitally connects to his receiver via USB. The receiver is early 2010, so apps are limited, but with the iPod he has access to other apps. I think if the receiver has Apple or Android support, and app supports it the device will act as a digital conduit to the receiver. That could be an option.
