Are new to this forum? Don't bother with Tidal or MQA:



You better off listening to FM radio...

The Tidal app on your desktop - does the core decode , USB audio player pro (UAPP) on android does the core decode for a small fee then bit perfect to any usb dongle - use any DAC you want in either set up after that and dont worry about the render upwards of 96khz on 192 tracks.

The Tidal interface is excellent and the MQA stain isn't on every track.

There's something to be said for convenience. I just wouldn't pay a premium for MQA decoding (its days appear numbered).

Green or blue, too your price point (and market access).

FYI - Apple and Amazon recently lowered pricing for streaming with CD resolution (or better).

[QUOTE = "Jim Matthews, post: 788735, membro: 29317"] A interface do Tidal é excelente e a mancha MQA não está em todas as trilhas.

Há algo a ser dito para sua conveniência. Eu simplesmente não pagaria um prêmio pela decodificação MQA (seus dias parecem numerados).

Verde ou azul também é o seu preço (e acesso ao mercado).

Para sua informação - a Apple e a Amazon baixaram recentemente o preço do streaming com resolução de CD (ou melhor).
