    Tidal - Master High resolution

    Hi

    Tidal has introduced "MQA high res 24/96" streaming in master quality. Will it be possible to get this working with Squeezeboxes(Transporter,Touch) ??

    It is possible to listen to 24/96 versions from Tidal. Sample rate does not change and stays on 44.1 . Don't know if it is 24 bit ??
    Fact is that the High Res some versions sounds better. Pink Floyd "The Division Bell" for example. Maybe because of a better master version.
    "A rush of blood to the head" with Coldplay is another example. There are 3 versions and one of them sounds much better. Much quieter mastered.

    The best we can hope for is 24/96 max, which would be software decoded (unfolded 1 step) by the TIDAL app in MySqueezebox.com OR a similar software modification of LMS/ickStream.

    Decoding to any higher sample rates, out to 384, requires a MQA-certified DAC.

    No one seems to want to step forward with information regarding who wrote the TIDAL app at MySqueezebox.com. So patience is called for.
