My Windows 10 app on my laptop still freezes--in fact, it won't play at all today. When I stream, I get frequent, sometimes constant dropouts and clicks, plus it isn't gapless. (I've uninstalled/reinstalled--nothing helps.) Something needs to give or I will likely cancel when it's time to renew later this month.

No issues for me using Qobuz through Roon and mconnect Control.

Works fine on my Win 10 desktop, but I have the same problem with my i7 8 GB RAM laptop. Cold boots, reboots, and uninstalls and re-installs don't resolve it, and the app is further challenged by the laptop's connection to an external DAC, only intermittently able to access the latter's ASIO driver even when the internal Realtek soundcard is disabled. (I don't have the same problem with the similarly-configured desktop and identical DAC.)

I also find the user interface bloated and a bit clunky.

Bottom line: I canceled this morning.

I just installed Audirvana Plus on a trial basis. It has eliminated the gapless problem as well as the dropouts--they were caused by the WASAPI version of the DAC driver. Switching to the ASIO version, which A+ allows, eliminated them. I'll have to decide if it's worth $99, but it's looking and sounding pretty good!
