Arcam Solo Qobuz noise problem

I recently signed up to both Qubuz and Tidal to try them out. I have signed up to both top plans. When I stream from Tidal to my Solo it shows on the display eg FLAC 1500kbps and the sound is fine. However when I use Qobuz and a hi res song it shows eg FLAC 4600kbps but there is lot of background crackles. I have swapped the speakers over and the problem still exists. I have tried streaming from both my IPhone XS and my wife’s Samsung and the noise is the same.
If I play them though the phones speakers there is no problem.
Can anyone advise me what the problem might be ?

Try using a lower sample rate for Qobuz and see if that fixes the issue.
