  1. Looking for some advice... I have personally gone "all in" on building a hi-res system over the last few months. I am running a ROON Nucleus+ to various endpoint DACs around our house. Sources are local ALAC, Qobuz, Tidal, etc... What about my friends? I imagine many of you have similar experiences, but I have become an evangelist for hi-res digital music among my friends. Many of my "music friends" are still using Spotify > SONOS. They are interested and curious. But they are NOT going to commit to building out a ROON system. At least not yet. I have several of these friends/family who have tested Tidal/Qobuz on Sonos and say they can't tell a difference. Of course I explain that better hardware is required, and they asking me for recommendations to build a system capable reproducing full quality, for one room. Simplicity and affordability are key. Important: They are not "all in." They are still a little guarded and skeptical. They are still questioning whether Qobuz > Quality DAC > Power/Speakers will really be so much better than Spotify > SONOS. They want to test. They want to wade into it gradually. SO,...what I'm looking for: A streaming DAC, compatible with HiRes (and maybe MQA) which does not require some 3rd party control software like JRiver or Roon. In the perfect scenario, they open Tidal/Qobuz iOS app on iPhone, and choose this streaming DAC as an output. The streaming DAC would be an "endpoint" for the Tidal/Qobuz iOS app and require no additional software. I have suggested: https://www.bluesound.com/products/node/ ...paired with... https://www.elac.com/product/navis-arb-61/?r=us But my understanding is that this will require them to use both BlueSound app and streaming service app. Is there a better way? Suggestions?
  2. Extra Ordinary MQA Easter Egg Introduction With Easter just around the corner, iFi audio has delivered an eagerly anticipated upgrade option as a very special Easter gift. iFi first introduced MQA into its product mix with the nano iDSD Black Label in November 2017. Since then, iFi customers across the globe have been asking when this option would be available in other iFi products. The good news is that the latest improvements to the nano Black Label firmware version 5.30, ‘Cookies & Cream’, does just that. Mqa for all This latest firmware flavour not only adds the latest scoop to the nano iDSD Black Label sundae but it also dishes out MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) audio to the full range* of iFi audio products going back to 2013! This ‘legacy’ update means that you can now download the MQA upgrade (PC and Mac) straight from the Support section of iFi’s website at no extra cost. Mqa optimised Firmware version 5.30 will optimise your device for MQA and can handle up to DSD256 and PCM384. Enjoy the MQA magic like never before. And Finally… None of the above would have been possible without the MQA software engineers who worked tirelessly alongside the iFi software team to make this unique opportunity happen. Thank you. Go to https://ifi-audio.com/audio_blog/mqa-firmware/ to enjoy your upgrade. This firmware provides MQA rendering as this is the ideal solution for portable products and those with power considerations. This means the workload is shared between the host (the computer) and the client (the DAC). The listener will still enjoy full MQA experience. For more information on MQA, go to http://www.mqa.co.uk/customer/how-it-works Legacy *The only exception is the original iDAC.
  3. Dear all, I'm running HQPlayer in combination with Roon and Tidal on Windows Server 2016. (Total set-up: ASUS ROG I7 / WS2016 / FP / AO / Roon Server / Tidal / HQP / Singxer SU-1 / Gustard X-20 Pro). Since the latest Roon update (1.6 build 401) playback stops after the first track. The status bar in Roon is not moving at all and stays on the start position. With previous releases I've never had this issue. From several tests I learned that the set-up does work properly when HQP is installed on Windows 10 but not when it is installed on Windows Server 2016. Are other users running these programs on Windows Server 2016 experiencing the same problems? Looking forward to your reponses, Benno
  4. Transport: Allo USBridge DAC: Schiit Yggdrasil OS: Volumio (newest available at the time of writing) Source file: Tidal playing via Volumio's native integration Every once in a while a dropout occurs. Music either stops completely (it shows as playing in Volumio GUI but there's only silence or there are a second long pauses). Issue occurs at random however I've noticed that on some tracks it occurs 100% of the time. Example track: link. Issue did not occur on RaspberryPi (also running Volumio) which is why I'm reporting it here. I'm okay with linux/ssh so if you need me to collect any logs just tell me where to look (there were no obvious errors in journalctl) Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1947]: volumio : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/ifconfig eth0 Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1947]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0) Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1947]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1949]: volumio : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1949]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0) Feb 01 19:15:11 volumio sudo[1949]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioGetBrowseSources Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioGetState Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::getState Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: appearance , getUiSettings Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1957]: volumio : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1957]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0) Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1957]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: wizard , getShowWizard Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: system , getShowWizard Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: multiroom , getMultiroom Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1964]: volumio : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1964]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0) Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio volumio[743]: info: Listing playlists Feb 01 19:15:12 volumio sudo[1964]: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root Feb 01 19:15:13 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioGetQueue Feb 01 19:15:13 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::getQueue Feb 01 19:15:13 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::getQueue Feb 01 19:15:14 volumio volumio[743]: info: No input data Feb 01 19:15:14 volumio volumio[743]: info: No input data Feb 01 19:15:15 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: streaming_services , handleBrowseUri Feb 01 19:15:21 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: streaming_services , handleBrowseUri Feb 01 19:15:22 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: streaming_services , handleBrowseUri Feb 01 19:15:22 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: streaming_services , handleBrowseUri Feb 01 19:15:28 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::executeOnPlugin: streaming_services , handleBrowseUri Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioAddQueueItems Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::addQueueItems Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::addQueueItems Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: Adding Item to queue: tidal://song/100794834 Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: Exploding uri tidal://song/100794834 in service streaming_services Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::saveQueue Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioPushQueue Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::updateTrackBlock Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::getTrackBlock Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreCommandRouter::volumioPlay Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: UNSET VOLATILE Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::play index 6 Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::setConsumeUpdateService undefined Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::stop Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::setConsumeUpdateService undefined Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: UNSET VOLATILE Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::play index undefined Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::setConsumeUpdateService undefined Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::getTrack 6 Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CoreStateMachine::startPlaybackTimer Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: CorePlayQueue::getTrack 6 Feb 01 19:15:32 volumio volumio[743]: info: [1549048532974] streamingServices::clearAddPlayTrack Feb 01 19:15:33 volumio volumio[743]: info: ControllerMpd::sendMpdCommand stop Feb 01 19:15:33 volumio volumio[743]: info: sending command...

Quite extensive work has been done..
  6. I posted a comment today that Tidal is not streaming audio's 900 pound gorilla because of the small subscriber numbers. I talked with him briefly at RMAF 2017 and my posts have not survived moderation since then. If I'm banned just tell specifically why.
  7. Hi all! I'm new to the forum, but have been reading around and been really enjoying the community, support, and ideas shared. I recently picked up some KEF Q150 bookshelf speakers, receiver, and a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC) turntable (w/ Schiit Mani preamp)—just getting started in the world of hi-fi audio, and have much to learn (but having a lot of fun). However, despite the incredible sound coming from my vinyl collection with my new setup, I've been scheming a way to integrate digital music into my setup. After about a solid month of research and learning, I have a parts list for my planned digital audio PC / music server build. I wanted to share and hear all thoughts / suggestions / concerns before I pull the trigger—it's not the cheapest build (approx. $2650). The main goal is to run either Ubuntu or Windows 10 for a Roon server / Tidal playback on the DAC I'm about to buy—Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital. The other goal of the build was to allow for 4K HDR playback (so 3840x2160 @ 60Hz) as an HTPC. Also, trying to limit the TDP as much as possible and go completely fanless/silent/no moving parts. The PC will live "headless" in my living room next to the stereo equipment. Here it is! CATEGORY COMPONENT MODEL NO.

  8. One of my neighbors is a 22 year old female college student. She is a music lover (mostly top 40 pop) and she also plays piano and violin,. She and her boyfriend share a family plan subscription to Apple Music. She LOVES it. She also has been on Spotify I asked her how Apple Music compared to Tidal. Answer: "Tidal? Never heard of it..." I mentioned Jay-Z as part owner..still no familiarity. So a little perspective. I think Tidal in the end is a VERY small player in streaming.
  9. Hi My setup to get Tidal Mqa is a Raspberry Pi 2 with LibreElec Kodi and Tidal 2 plugin. The plugin is set to 24bits. The Raspberry is connected to Onkyo A/V receiver with 192 kHz/24 internal DAC through hdmi cable. When I play Mqa tracks the info codec shows a bitrate of more than 1000kbps. Every song has a different bitrate. So I think that Kodi are receiving and decoding correctly the Mqa tracks. My doubt is if the Onkyo receiver are getting the full Mqa sound through hdmi cable. Exist any limitation with Mqa in the Raspberry through hdmi? The Onkyo A/V shows that receives PCM 48 khz
  10. Hi all, On the TIDAL app, I am now seeing multiple albums for the same album release. Search for Brad Mehldau or David Byrne for example. I presume one of them is an MQA version (which I recall would not show on iOS at all). I am away now and cannot check on my computer, only have an iPhone and iPad. How can I tell on an iPad - on the TIDAL app or otherwise - which are MQA? Thx.
  11. A word of congrats to Roon and committing to work done right. I want to celebrate here that they truly listen to their customers and produce truly amazing software - head and shoulders above all else in my opinion. The particular reason for such praise is their new MQA implementation: They fought tooth and nail to get something that would live up to the Roon standards and finally they did. You might or might not like MQA - I am not advocating it at all. What I am pointing out is Roon's commitment to doing it in line with their design and not destroying user experience. Quite amazing to see such a robust product. Some power users might prefer JRiver for some use cases - in a few better than Roon's. That's very good software as well.
  12. I use my audio system mainly to listen to Tidal FLAC 1,441 kbps streams. My setup: A pair ofMartin Logan Aeon-i speakers, powered by a Krell KSA amplifier/Krell KSL-2 Preamp Combo. The Tidal stream from my router has a wired connection to a Sonore microRendu, which turn is connected to the USB input of a PS Audio NuWave DSD. The DSD is connected to the Krell preamp with a pair of balanced XLR cables. This system provides great undistorted audio with spacious staging of 2 channel classical music as it might sound in a Symphony Hall or Opera house with a seat in the center section. The reason for this post is to share the discovery that you do NOT need a PC with Logitech Media Server running or an account with Logitech’s Mysqueezebox. These items add unneccessary complexities to the task of streaming Tidal to your audio system. Instead simply install the LUMIN app on your iPad. It will serve as an elegant and intuitive “controller”, telling Tidal what albums/tracks you want to listen to. You can easily save your favorites in a playlist format. I hope this will help other audiophiles to enjoy their Tidal and microRendu Combo to the fullest? Claus
  13. I am using microRendu (version 2.6) and Squeezelite/Logitech Media Server (version 7.9.1) to stream TIDAL (HiFi) to my Peachtree DAC with iPeng on my iPad as my easy-to-use album/track selector. I do not have any local content - all I want is TIDAL. This setup has worked flawlessly for the past several months; but yesterday, a major problem was caused by mySqueezebox. For some reason, my Username/Password combination is causing the LMS to abort, and I get the following error message: "An unexpected error occurred while validating your squeezebox account... ". The LMS Diagnostic screen shows OK for Port 3483 (slimproto), Port 9000 (HTTP) and Port 9090 (CLI), before attempting to use my user name/password to press the "Apply" and "OK" buttons on the LMS screen. After I hit OK, the app aborts. Here is what I have tried several times during the past hours... all to no avail. 1. reinstall LMS. 2. rebooting my Windows 10 (64bit) PC, running LMS. 3. "restoring" my PC to a previous restore point befor the problem occurred. 4. using my web browser to sign in to mysqueezebox.com - no problem 5. Installing LMS on a Windows XP Pro laptop - same result. 6. tried umpteen various suggestions involving Windows registration settings and other (for me) incomprehensive computer nerd fixes. Since I am just an end user with only rudimentary PC skills - I am now completely at my wits end as to how to get this problem identified and fixed. I wish I could just eliminate the need for LMS to contact mysqueezebox in order to stream TIDAL in HiFi mode, using my microRendu and Squeezelite. If anyone on this forum can help me, I would be most grateful. Update: While waiting for a solution, I have “re-activated” my old Logitech Touch, which has no problem signing in to mysqueezebox.com and showing as a Player. But it sounds like s*** compared to my microRendu ? From your computer or mobile device open Kazoo and select the Room with the "OH" in the name and you should now see Tidal in Kazoo. On first use you will need to enter your Tidal Account information I did install Kazoo, but I do not see “the Room with the “OH in the name” or any Room - so I don’t see Tidal in Kazoo ?. All I can listen to are a couple of Linn Podcasts... It turned into a dead end. Unless you have a Linn Product installed, you can not add TIDAL in the ”Konfig” app. Just when I was about to give up, I discovered that the LUMIN app will control TIDAL and pass the HiFi streams to microRendu perfectly. I am back in Audio Nirvana ? Screw Logitech’s mysonicorbiter
  14. Edit: I think my original post was too long so will try simpler shorter question Hi all, I am wondering if streaming Tidal through Chromecast Audio will pass through an unaltered signal to a DAC through TOSLINK. Chromecast specs state support for hi res streams at 24bit/96khz and Tidal page states MQA streaming at 24bit/96khz so on the surface this seems like an adequate way to get tidal Hifi to my stereo, or am I missing something?
  15. I am having great trouble getting certain Tidal 'favourites' deleted from my Aurender Conductor database ..... it's not all albums but some I just cannot shift and they remain no matter how many times I clear and reload my database I seem to think that this has been raised previously in a thread but I can't find it and I can't recall if it had a solution to this problem ..... can anyone help? Many thanks
  16. This is my Tidal Playlist : http://tidal.com/playlist/925fdce1-22ef-400c-8972-2f881c04d18a The tracks is from albums i think have good soundquality and good music It is very easy to make playlists in Tidal, and playlists from audiophile is a very easy way to discover new musicFine if other members to will make their own playlist and publish them here Tore
  17. Hi all. I usually use Tidal app on my iPhone 5s connected via Dragonfly red to earphones or to an amplifier. Despite some other players (like VOX or Deezer) Tidal has no sound equaliser. Does anyone know if exist a proper sound equaliser (app) to use in combine with Tidal? Same thing for the app on the iMac. Is there a proper software to make that same? Thank you for the hints.
  18. Hello, I would just like a very high quality streamer capable of allowing me to listen to Tidal at the very best quality I can. I am not interested in listening to music on local file libraries so I won't need a NAS for example. My choices are either the mR, or the sMS-200 - I guess both run the same open platform OS's so, which one is better for the single task I have at hand? I did simply consider the AURALiC Mini (or even the full blown Aries 2nd hand), which I'm sure will be easier (because it's all built in) - but for me it's ultimate sound quality that's far more important.
  19. Hi I am using Picore player on my Rpi 3, Logitec Media Server with Tidal Plug in on my Synology NAS Everything plays great except in my Tidal Favourites Albums there is exactly only 1 - 500 No more Albums after 500. I have check all the settings in LMS and can't find any obvious settings for this... Any thoughts please. i am using Squeezebox app on the I pad and I phone and also Ipeng and it is the same on both. I have made another SD card with NEW Picore image and tried that but alas the same...Rebooted the NAS drive ...still the same.. Any thoughts please.
  20. I am putting together a system for listening to Deezer or Tidal streaming flac and possibly MQA. My budget is $2,000 and am considering a Bluesound Node 2, Rega Brio amp and SVS Ultra Bookshelf speakers. That's $500 over my budget so really can't spend more than that. My listening space will be mostly a seating area that occupies about a third of a 27' x 20' room that is a combination kitchen-dining-living room. There's no carpet and a plastic laminate floor with a lot of glass plus some, not a lot, of stuffed furniture and drapery so am trying to stay away from overly bright equipment. There's a tenant underneath so am not looking for high volume or strong base so am not planning on a sub woofer. My wife and I listen to all kinds of music. I am kind of rolling the dice here since I live on Maui and can't audition equipment before I buy...and I am a noobie at this so...I would really appreciate any advice that I can get. Thanks.
  21. All, I decided to take the plunge and try Tidal for 12 days, downloaded on my MacBook Air. I have a Melco N1 music server connected to a Berkeley Alpha USB/Berkeley DAC II. I have been playing files via an iPad using ConnectHD app. This player allows Tidal to be used and in fact, I have been listening to music all day through this set up (Melco-DAC II). My question is what is the advantage of a separate stand alone network music player in comparison to the above set up. Thanks Tom.
  22. So I signed up for a one month subscription to test out streaming FLAC and explore TIDAL's music catalog. With my primary system (see below), the FLAC file playback does make a sonic difference. However, not all music is available in FLAC. I keep the Logitech Media Server web player tab open in my browser to check now and then. With my experience, I am unimpressed with TIDAL's music editors and curation. Clearly, the employees at TIDAL and I have different tastes in music. This became evident with Playlists categories and Genres. So be it. After exploring the music catalog, I find enough of the artists and albums I like to keep the subscription. For those using intermediate music streamers, that approach to finding and managing music can be a bit less-than workable, particularly if you're on an smartphone. Over time, I'm sure apps will become more refined and usable. In the meantime, here's a tip/trick for using TIDAL on your music streamer of choice. In addition to your open playback controller app, open the TIDAL standalone app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Bigger screen is better. Use the TIDAL interface for exploring/searching*, saving artists, albums, tracts, and building playlists. You can then switch back to whatever playback controller you have implemented. * In TIDAL, try different variations of album or tract titles. For example, leaving off the last letter will return variations of the search. Also, when the search results appear, click on the "Show All Results" at the bottom of the box. Another current benefit of the TIDAL app Search, in contrast to some controllers, is that the results are sorted: 1) full artist albums, then 2) Singles and EPS, then 3) inclusions in other multi-artist works. _________________________ Please add to this thread any more "tips & tricks" you come across that might be helpful.
  23. I understand using audio enhancers like dfx and srs with mp3's, but should they be used with losses formats? (Flac or CD's). I recently signed up for tidalhifi.com loss-less streaming and sometimes my DFX enhancer seems to do more harm than good. I appreciate any input, experience or feedback on when (if ever) it makes sense to use audio enhancers (and which ones). Thank you..
  24. Can anyone tell me if it s possible to somehow upsample the streams from TIDAL or Spotify? I purchased Audrivana which has a powerful upsampling filter, bypassing Core audio. Just wondering if there was some way to feed it the stream from a streaming service like Tidal or Spotify
  25. Hi, I have an old Sonos ZP80 (Connect it is now called I think) and also a uRendu+roon+MacMini setup. Im not sure why, but I have always found the Sonos so much more logical to use and accessible given its HW based, always on and 'just works'.. I am frustrated a little with the need for a Mac/PC to be on, cabling ok. Rendu on, PSUs on. App opened etc and then likely I will stream Tidal or Spotify (which I cannot with Roon). I'm now thinking that my 'high-end' chain isn't good enough, so bought a new PSU for the DAC, PSU for the Rendu, optical GbE cabling. Now looking at ROCK and potentially another machine (the Mac Mini is my office machine not dedicated for Hi-Fi. A bit of me is thinking this is madness given all the plumbing. I am wondering about whether the Bluesound/ Auralic etc and other platforms offer a simple streaming experience when I really own almost no music and like immediacy of access? My DAC is a Brooklyn and I did want to stream MQA and Hi-Res. I would love your opinions & experiences of different platforms for playing music. Best wishes Simon
