Especially TIDAL – becuase they will bring this in future on more devices – on PC it´s available. cheers Thomas This topic was modified 1 year, 2 months ago by gegges11.

Best regards, Yvonne January 10, 2017 at 6:29 am #7494 jayallearsParticipant 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. January 18, 2017 at 1:53 pm #7576 JgrijpmaParticipant 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 January 24, 2017 at 2:34 pm #7633 Chris WalkerKeymaster 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, Chris ELAC January 30, 2017 at 11:14 am #7673 SteveGParticipant I will happily buy one should you add MQA.

As far as an update to MQA, the hardware has passed certification for MQA. So stay tuned. Thanks, Charles May 14, 2017 at 1:44 pm #9078 SteveGParticipant 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! May 15, 2017 at 2:33 am #9084 YS-BerlinParticipant 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? Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
