    Mike...please keep us posted on this front. Can't wait!

    Please clarify, as you can stream MQA/Tidal through Aurender now. You don't need an upgraded DAC to stream Tidal/MQA through any of the Aurenders right now.

    Bob, my understanding is that at this moment to play MQA files via TIDAL through a dac like the Brooklyn that decodes them one must use the TIDAL desktop app. Obviously this will change and hopefully very quickly to support decoding MQA decoding playback with Aurender.

    I have no interest in MQA (or DSD). Recently I bought a Schiit Gungnir Multibit DAC. I have no membership on Tidal or any streaming service. All my music are CDs I have ripped myself.

    Oh, ok. Not sure I totally follow as I am passing the MQA files using my Aurender to my MSB DAC. The MSB does not have the MQA module yet (on it's way), but it still plays the Tidal MQA decoded (SW Decoding) through the MSB. I would think that if you had a Brooklyn and fed it the MQA file through the Aurdender now it would work fine.

    The Aurender does not have any designation that it is an MQA file but if you save the files to Favorites on the desktop Tidal app and then update the Aurender the files are in your Aurender Tidal app and when you play them they ARE MQA decoded. So I would think that if you played them through the Aurender now to the Brooklyn or any DAC that had the MQA HW decoder they would play.

    Aurender will have the MQA designation etc. soon probably, but it works now, other than being cumbersome. You have to favorite the albums on the desktop but then you have to completely get out of the Aurender app to get it to update your favorites. Once the favorites are updated on the Aurender app, even though they don't say MQA, if you play them they are MQA ready.

    It will be interesting to see if they play through the Brooklyn Dac, I have only played them through MSB and Goldmund non MQA dacs so they are using the SW decoding in Tidal. Very interesting to know the difference of the HW vs SW decoding and it seems at the moment you have everything to find out, please do tell
