British audio specialist Cambridge Audio is to add support of high-res music streaming and download service Qobuz to its network audio streamers. All three models, the Edge NQ, Azur 851N and CXN v2, are now compatible with the format. Qobuz has been integrated into its iOS and Android app, StreamMagic.
All levels of audio resolutions delivered by Qobuz streaming plans are supported, from 320kbps to CD-quality and 24-bit/192kHz. Once the update becomes available, the StreamMagic app will prompt Cambridge Audio EDGE NQ, CXN (V2) and 851N customers to perform an over-the-air update.

Qobuz offers listeners a wide range of music genres as well as exclusive editorial content curated by a team of experts.

In related news, Onkyo has released a firmware update for select network AV components which enables voice control via a connected Alexa device. The following Onkyo network AV receivers have benefitted: TX-RZ840, TX-RZ740, TX-NR797, TX-NR696. The update has also landed on the brand's TX-8390 stereo receiver.
