This would provide integration with an MQA software decoder or direct MQA playback of TIDAL Masters
First of all: Thank you for Innuos 2.xx. The device is so much better now. I am happy that there is no need to use the squeezebox or iPeng app anymore.
Most of DACs don't come with MQA, so I strongly appreciate a software first pass for Tidal just like apple devices do. I'm using the internal DAC of my Devialet D200 and it can play hires by using an iPhone directly with Tidal master. Would be great if my ZEN mk2 could do so either without the need of an external MQA-DAC.
What about other streaming services?
First tidal integration than MQA but definitely the MQA should come sooner or later
Cannot play Hi Rez files on Tidal . 44 is the highest . Qobuz will play HiRez
Will purchase a Zen Mk3 when this feature is available.
I would appreciate more to integrate HQplayer as a NAA. People with non oversampling dacs like me eould appreciate too. Like a Roon player.
As for MQA integration: I would be happy, because on second hand market, my Innous device would be more valuable.
Not interested in MQA at all. CD quality streaming is sufficient for me. However Tidal Connect integration is what i really want to see. The ability to use the Tidal App to control Tidal via Innuos is of more use to me.
Agreed, I am still not terribly familiar with Tidals MQA tracks, but this is what I'm really looking forward to, and have purchased a MQA DAC.
I would FIRST want Tidal integration, then SECOND MQA support.
But, sooner is always better then later.
Although not a huge fan, I'd rather have MQA sooner rather than later...
This would be the first time to use the High Resolution Streaming Option with my ZEN Server. Waiting hard for it. And of course, we pay extra for MQA, so I would like to use it. 😉👍👍👍
I believe MQA integration is a good step forward, decoding internally would allow my Chord M Scaler and Hugo TT2 to contribute to the quality of the processing. Thank you
I have had this problem since day one with my Zen mini and your app. Very disappointing since I am paying for HiRez and cannot use it .
I read recently you were having second thoughts about eventually providing support for Tidal Masters and MQA. I would like to strongly request that you reconsider, and that you do committ to this as part of your road map. MANY competing brands offer support for Tidal Masters and MQA, including Arcam, Audiolab, Aurender, Bluesound, Cambridge Audio, Cocktail Audio, Lumin, Matrix Audio, Moon, NAD, Nova Fidelity and many others. You say that MQA is controversial but this does not stop Tidal having more subscribers than Qobuz. Nuno I stuck with Innuos because in email and forum correspondence with me you told me full Tidal Masters/MQA support was on the roadmap, but now it seems like you are no longer committed to this?
Will this fix the issue with everything being passed to my DAC at 44.1k no matter the native higher resolution file?
why not just pass through MQA untouched bit perfect rather than provide a software decoder? Or is a software decoder needed to pass through Tidal MQA streams intact to a DAC ? Is the reluctance to do this because you would need some kind of MQA licence/approval from MQA? Please explain why you changed the status from "planned" to "under review" ? This seems like a change from what was promised originally.
