    Hello,

    are there plans about supporting the MQA Format?
    Especially TIDAL – becuase they will bring this in future on more devices – on PC it´s available.

    cheers Thomas

    Dear Thomas,

    at the moment the Discovery doesn’t support MQA.

    Best regards,
    Yvonne

    Can you stream MQA files from Tidal in the Essentials App? As I understand it you still get benefits even if you do not have an MQA Dac.

    Hi
    Yes I am looking also forward to the Tidal MQA format.
    Please provide an estimation when we can expect this update.
    No need anymore to rip all my CD’s 🙂
    Kind regards
    John

    Hi Everyone,

    We are currently working with MQA to see if it will be possible to add MQA.

    We will keep everyone up to date on the progress.

    Thanks,

    Hello Gegges11,

    I’m helping Chris with support now.

    As far as an update to MQA, the hardware has passed certification for MQA. So stay tuned.

    Thanks,
    Charles

      Here is what I hope for: the Discovery DAC output does full MQA decoding, whereas the digital coax output does first-stage software MQA decoding like Roon software and the Tidal desktop app. This would be the best of all worlds!

    Hello Chris,

    I already use MQA on the DPA of Onkyo. The playlists of Tidal master can already be played on the Discovery. Probably not with the full code?
