It's a finnicky process! But so far the rewards have been rich. The Hungarians, their Rasumovsky No 1 sounds newly minted; the Ruzikova Bach is gorgeous in sound, presence and detail, I especially like her accompanied sonata and ensemble pieces. Nothing new since but there's a lot there to get through.

Happy listening!

Off topic - of all the products that could come out during Meridian 40, I wish for a new MSR+. This product is really last decade. Something sexier like Diavalet has would be so cool.

Yes, I saw that but for some reason I can't make any of the MQA Capitol albums stick as a favorite in Roon. Anyone else have this problem?

Great update.

Found The Band, Billy Idol, Crowded House, 'Goldfinger' & 'Live and Let Die', some McCartney, Nat King Cole.

Assume more will 'turn' MQA in due course.

Great finds!

Some album art not showing on Sinatra, though...

Does anyone know if the Mono versions of the Beach Boys are worth having, or would you just default to the Stereo cuts these days?

Scratch that. Roon (unlike Tidal) doesn't show which tracks are mono or stereo on the dual album versions, so I'll stick with the stereo for now.

Is there any way to focus on favourites from a particular Tidal artist in Roon?

I'm having a problem with Sinatra (Strangers in the Night), where it shows as a Tidal favourite in Roon, but when you click on the album it comes up as 'unavailable'.

Actually I can't add any of the Capitol albums to my library. Roon indicates it's done this, when in fact it's not added. Very confusing.

Using the Bluesound app and Tidal I can see which albums are CD and MQA.

Ultimate Sinatra from 2015, This is Sinatra 1956, Sinatra Swingin' Brass are the three I've seen so far that are flagged as MQA.

Hope this helps. Chris

Ohh and one of the Christmas Compilations.

The last Waltz, Rock of ages (Live), Music From The Big Pink, The Band By The Band.


No 18 in the Hall of fame smile I have simple tastes; I am content to settle for the best: GIK monster bass panels, rear wall.
MC200 500GB, QNAP TVS 471i3. Roon into 2 MS200's. Explorer 2. Bluesound Pulse 2 and Mini. 596 v1.89.2, 518, G61R, M60.2 Rosewood, M33C, M33 Rears, M1500 Sub, Foxsat HD, Sony Blu Ray, Pioneer 5090, 2 Chromecast's for LRB videos.

I've posted on the support forum at Roon about the non-recognition of these albums as Tidal Favourites. I believe it is a Roon issue, so won't go into it here as it's OT.

On topic, I didn't have time to type all the Sinatra/ Beach Boys Masters, so took a couple of screen shots:

I can't get any of the new Universal MQA albums into my Roon library. Marking them as a favorite puts them in Tidal favorites but they don't make it to Roon. FWIW they play fine on my PC with my EP2 indicating MQA.

Glad to say that the way I use Tidal "Blue Star" favourite here works with Sooloos.
However I have no intention of adding Tidal albums to my local library.

This solution is not ideal as refreshing of Tidal Favourites (in Sooloos) by Album is a real pain as you have to add page by page every time you add new albums. Surely the Sooloos guys at M could get this to refresh with one button press for complete Tidal favourite album inventory.

Thanks to Richard (RGraham) for the info it is great to get Stage Fright in MQA.
