signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop with integrated HRA Streaming by HIGHRESAUDIO

For years, the software company signalyst has been developing HQPlayer 4, a platform for the playback of audio data at a high quality level and on various systems. With the latest version of the signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop, streaming from the German provider HIGHRESAUDIO is now also available.

signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop is probably a solution that is still considered a bit of an insider’s tip when it comes to playing back hi-res audio data directly from the PC or Mac. It is an immensely flexible solution from the software forge signalyst and Jussi Laako.

The signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop software alone impresses with its immensely flexible options for playing back audio data, including hi-res audio content in a wide variety of formats. The high-quality audio player offers several selectable high-quality upsampling and downsampling algorithms as well as selectable dither, noise shaping and modulator algorithms, to mention just a few important key data.

Broad support for different platforms

It is noteworthy, for example, that the software company not only offers the signalyst HQPlayer 4 Desktop, a consumer solution for the operating systems Microsoft Windows, Linux and Apple macOS, but also the signalyst HQPlayer 4 Pro, also for the operating systems Microsoft Windows, Linux and Apple macOS, which is not only designed as audio player software, but also as a recorder and converter.

In addition, the signalyst HQPlayer 4 Embedded solution is also available, designed for the development of Linux-based music playback devices and digital audio processors.

So it is a broad field that signalyst serves, and it is a little surprising that the solution, as described above, has not really caught on with the general public and is therefore considered a kind of insider tip, but it is less surprising that those who use the software appreciate it as an extremely flexible, versatile and high-quality solution.

Integration in Roon

Many users of the Roon software from Roon Labs LLC. will be familiar with signalyst HQ Player 4, at least to the extent that it is directly supported by the media management and multi-room audio streaming solution.

Now with integration of HRA Streaming from HIGHRESAUDIO

What is new is that the version of the signalyst HQ Player 4 that has just been introduced now has a direct integration of HRA Streaming from the German online provider HIGHRESAUDIO. This allows direct access to HIGHRESAUDIO content in the best quality.

HIGHRESAUDIO is a high-resolution music download and streaming service. The German company exclusively offers high-resolution 24-bit Studio Masters in FLAC, ALAC, DXD, DSD and MQA formats.

Integration of HRA Streaming in Roon

An important point is that for signalyst HQPlayer 4 there is also an integration in Roon, so the now implemented HRA Streaming is an option for the direct integration of HRA Streaming from HIGHRESAUDIO in Roon.

Getting to the point

It is not always the direct route that can be taken to set up and design a hi-fi chain, especially in the IT environment, in such a way that all content can be accessed as desired. This applies, for example, to streaming offers that are available in one solution but not yet implemented in another. With signalyst HQPlayer 4 from the software company signalyst, an integration of HRA Streaming from HIGHRESAUDIO is now available, which in turn also allows the integration of HRA Streaming in Roon from Roon Labs LLC.
