Since a couple of weeks the bitrate of spotify has been reduced from 384 kHz to 192 kHz (i noticed this cause i listen to spotify with a dac). Why is this?

Hey there @Thebartman,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community!

 

So we can look further into this, could you let us know some additional info, for example the device you're seeing this?

 

If you'd like, you can also find more details on the sound quality and how you can adjust it for different devices here.

 

We'll be keeping an eye out for your reply :)

Hello, im using a macbook pro in combination with an ifi nano IDSD dac. This dac is equipped with an LED where you can see the bitrate by the color of the LED. Normaly this LED was white (manual dac says DSD352/384 kHz). But now the LED color is Cyan (192 kHz). So the bitrate (soundquality) has been reduced. Please explain.

Best Regards, Bart
