I have to laugh, I clicked on that page, accepted the cookies and the first thing I see is the picture below.

I assumed that it was going to be a terrible review about how this Streamer should be used for a doorstop.

Hmm, looks good. Been in need of something like this that checks all the boxes for old consoles.

Digital dunderhead, don't understand the question.

According to Darko:
all streams spun from the Mini’s TOSLINK socket are rendered bit-perfectly e.g. a 16bit/44.1kHz stream will be output at 16bit/44.1kHz and a 24bit/192kHz stream will be dispatched at 24bit/192kHz. That’s especially good news for Qobuz users delving into hi-res audio as Tidal is still capped at CD quality inside the Wiim app and with Tidal Connect. Of course, if you’re not fussed about hi-res, you won’t be fussed by this limitation.

It's not clear to me how Qobuz is being streamed, other than from the WiiM app directly to the unit, but by what protocol? I guess it doesn't really matter if bitperfect/gapless.

Does your DAC have a sample rate indicator and if so does it display the correct sample rates for the various different album resolutions available on Qobuz (i.e. 96kHz, 192kHz)?

I see this excerpt in that Darko piece you linked to and conclude it is using UPnP for Qobuz:

"as well UPnP from Wiim’s Home smartphone app."

That's a good thing of course, much as some like to poke holes in DLNA/UPnP as being antiquated or half-baked, or too difficult to use yada yada (not my experience). I'm glad you like the WiiM!
