AO vs. Tidal

Recommended Posts

I am running AO 1.40 and I have Tidal HiFi downloaded on my server. When I listen to a track on my server it sounds way better than when I pick the same track on Tidal. There are not many changes to be made on Tidal but are there any settings I can change in AO to make Tidal sound better???

Hello

 

in my opinion streamed sound just does sound worse that local stored sound, even if TIDAL is lossless. Use AO with as many options to get the best result, but there will most likely be a difference between locally stored and streamed sound.

Thanks! One can only hope for the day that happens. I dream of a time you can get GREAT sound from Tidal or some other service...

Well... It's been a year and 9 months. Are we any closer to achieving great sound from Tidal? Is MQA a significant improvement? I'm still running AO 1.4 and JRiver MC21 will upgrading these improve sound quality? THANKS!
