How to stream Tidal in DSD?

Recommended Posts

Roon 1.3 can do it. Set the DSP to upsample to DSD and it will upsample all output to DSD before delivering it to your playback. 


You don't have to have HQP. But, IMO, the upsampling in HQP is a little better. And it doesn't take advanced computer skills, just a bit of time to learn the interface and setup. 


But if you want to keep it simple, just use Roon.


Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Path: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Cayin iDAC6 MKII (tube mode) (XLR)>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: Ropieee (RPi3b+ with touchscreen) + Schiit Modi3E to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
