It turned out that Firefox easily switches the sampling frequency of my SMSL M500 DAC to the content frequency when playing tracks from Qobuz and all this under Linux! (from https://play.qobuz.com)
When I switched to Linux, at first I was upset that there was no Audirvana application for Linux, which perfectly plays music from Qobuz on MacOS and controls the SMSL DAC. Audirvana also has an excellent remote control that works with Android and iOS. It looks like a player and is superb in its functionality. But this is not possible for Linux, and for months the question hung over my head about how it is possible to listen to music from Qobuz efficiently and conveniently and at the same time have the DAC controlled by the source. And vua la! Suddenly, Firefox for Linux takes control of the DAC and plays content without unnecessary resampling (Chrome, for example, cannot do this). And when minimized, the process consumes 4-5% of my weak processor on a compact and low-noise computer from Beelink.
And you don’t need to buy/install any extra programs/players. You open the page in Firefox and enjoy!
I’m just sharing my discovery and joy of recent days!
(although the remote control is sorely missed..)
