    Who's using what? Tidal-Qobuz-Spotify thru? Roon-Audirvana-Jriver

    Tidal Hi-Res subscription, family pass. I do like the option of MQA.

    I am looking forward to other Hi-Res services as Tidal seems more orientated towards a specific genre I don’t listening to.

    No streaming here either. Just play my Lumin playlist. I can’t listen to all the music I currently have.

    I do programming for a living, but all this streaming crap-ola seems to complicated for me. I feel like the gardener who doesn’t cut his grass. LOL

    I have a family acct for Spotify and I use it mainly for discovery and on my daily commute.

    I don’t stream on main rig and have absolutely no desire for mqa and the farse that it is. I use Bandcamp a lot as a source to purchase or else its amazon, burningshed, kascope, hdtracks etc.. and all is stored on NAS. I then use ROON (lifetime) on a dedicated high end server with HQP.

    Tidal using Melco N1A/2 feeding signal via Ethernet to a Bel Canto Black EX integrated. Full MQA. Superb.

    Tidal with the MQA licence, using an Aurender N10. I subscribed to Tidal over 2 years ago, and haven't purchased a CD since.

    Tidal MQA from my N10 to my Berkeley MQA DAC is how I usually stream. For me the SQ is much preferred over Tidal CD quality.

    Tidal Hifi including MQA from a netbook via USB to a Mytek Brooklyn DAC (the full decoding is done by the DAC).

    For ease of use and just to get to know new music I use a Chromecast Audio + iFi SPDIF purifier feeding the Brooklyn but the sound quality is not as good and, alas, no MQA.

    I intend to buy a proper digital transport/ streamer when I think that the technology has stabilized a little.

    I use Tidal with Squeezebox Touch and then out to the AURALIC Vega through coax cable! Love the results, almost better that my Synology streaming flac files to the AURALIC. Tidal is a great streaming service!

    Qobuz Sublime to my Aries G2 using the Lightning DS App. Mostly for music discovery. If I like it I buy it in which Roon then takes over.
