    Tidal desktop app has the ability to perform a software decode of MQA from 24/48 to become 24/96 and feed it to a directly connected USB DAC, if the desktop app is set to Exclusive mode and MQA Passthrough is unchecked.

    In a Lumin setup, Lumin player is controlled by Lumin app on iPad. It plays Tidal natively without requiring the presence of a computer or any Tidal app. Lumin does not have the ability to decode MQA yet. This capability is being considered.

    Back in business- I had never used Splashtop, but easy downloads on the MacAir and the Ipad and now the Ipad controls the MacAir. Now the MacAair can reside up by the DAC and control via Ipad at the listening seat......VERY NICE!

    This is confusing, because I've been told by multiple sources on the pro side and even saw with my own eyes when I toured recording studios a few summers ago, that they record to 24/96. So, what's this 24/192 stuff? Are we up sampling and then down sampling?

    A large part (perhaps most) of Warner's hi-res digital library is analog tape transferred to digital at 24/192; maybe they are just using that as an example.

    What a great article....wish I had read this yesterday morning, but it should be required reading for anyone that might be interested in MQA.

    Thanks!!!

    I am also going to load Splashtop on my MacAir and control Tidal from my Ipad, which will be nice.
    Hey but we are having fun and enjoying music, its not like we are at war over gas prices or medical insurance (yet)
