2. Can you control playback with the AVR remote, like pause, play and skip?
3. If I'm streaming something from Tidal to the AVR using the app,
does the stream go through the app/device to the AVR via wifi? If I turn off the app/device does music keep playing?
4. Can Heos access local music? Is a DLNA server required?
Thinking of upgrading my Denon X3300W to a newer model with Heos, mainly to stream Tidal but also play from my local library without needing Roon or JRiver etc. May also want to add remote Heos speakers at some point, but the house is already wired and I'm using Zone 2 on the AVR for multi-room. Heos sounds like it might be a little more flexible. Any help/advice appreciated.
works( AVR remote) for Tidal as well. and with Spotify Premium IIRC.
HEOS is good. I have found it to be quite stable. I'd still give the edge to SONOS for the better UI.
but by many respects HEOS is the music "tool" that you never knew you needed, until you start using it. and the whole house capability is great.
i use it almost every day.
Hope it helps
