Proof of concept/wow

Recommended Posts

It doesn't get much simpler than this. A Toshiba netbook from several years back with a fresh install of Windows 7 Starter, a new Meridian Explorer 2 and a Tidal hifi subscription. CPU usage is minimal with the Tidal desktop app and Windows Task Manager minimized, no burps or stutters even with 192kHz MQA (playing some Miles Davis at 88.2 or 96 when I took the photo) and the mofo even runs on battery! I decided to try this just to see if it would work and it doesn't just work - it sounds bloody amazing!
